The latest issue of the Fire and Rescue Journal, published by the Office of the State Fire Marshall, finds a feature on a fire museum in Pleasant Garden, NC. That's just south of Greensboro. Called Donald's Fire Haven Museum, it's a personal collection of fire service veteran Chief Donald E. Whitaker. He built a 2,400 square-foot structure behind his home, and it's filled with nearly 50 years worth of souvenirs and mementos. The museum's been open to the public since 2003, and Chief Whitaker is the tour guide. Admission is free and all donations go the Muscular Dystrophy Association. Visit the web site to learn and see more.
