start a fire museum...
A Helpful Guide
So - ya wanna
These inquirys are generally followed up with me
asking what stage of the process they are in - be it organizational
development, fundraising, collections work, or setting up the
exhibits and making it run on a day-to-day basis. I then send off an
envelope with helpful information - copies of handouts that have been
presented at the various Fire Museum Seminars or that I have
developed based on my own personal experiences. I have tried to
simplify this process, (and my life) by posting all this information
here instead of copying and mailing.
In addition to the how-to pages I am developing a page of fire and general museum resources....
This information section is by no means complete. Below you will see a few sections with no links, I'll be working on developing and expanding this area as my time permits. Hopefully (when we get enough information about each section) I would like the Fire Museum Network to offer these how-to pages printed out and placed in a notebook binder.... but in the meantime you'll have to do the printing yourself.
Remember - starting and operating a fire museum is HARD WORK - Good Luck!
