Website Updates

July 21, 2015 -  Welcome to the updated version of the FMN Web Site. I’d like to take this time to give a well deserved ‘Thank You!’ to Board Member David Lewis, Aurora Regional Fire Museum. David was our first ‘Web Guy’ and initially developed and has maintained our site for over 15 years. It has served us well and continues to be the basis of our new site. Many thanks to David for his expertise and creative ‘genius’ (although evil at times…) which has carried us through many years of growth.

When I was elected President in 2013 it was evident that communication with our members was sadly lacking. As technology has advanced, so has the ability to better communicate with each other through social media and digital mail. The Board and I set out to improve our communication with each of you and to update and modernize our web site. After over a year of planning, requests for proposals, vendor selection and design work we are ready to launch our new and improved site.

The most critical part of the entire process is having your correct contact information. Everyone eventually changes home addresses, and that is true for your email address. If you are not getting periodic messages from the FMN, please check to see that we have a good address on file. We will not overburden you with unnecessary mail, but you should see something on a regular basis.

I welcome your suggestions for corrections, improvements or additions to the site. It will always be a work in progress. Help us help you to have the best museum and learning experience in your city.

Bill Hall, President
