03/06/14 199 W, 1 I - + 5 - 1 Raleigh Fire Museum Open This Saturday, March 8

Looking for a fun activity on Saturday? Visit the Raleigh Fire Museum, which is located just a couple minutes south of downtown Raleigh. We're open this Saturday, January 11, from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. That's our monthly opening, on the second Saturday of the month. You can even meet Mr. Blogger, who will be staffing same! (Please contain your appaluse.)

The museum is located in a modular classroom at the Keeter Training Center at 105 Keeter Center Drive. This Saturday, you'll also see firefighters and fire engines in action, as "high-rise drills" will be conducted throughout the day on the "drill pad."

Admission to the museum is free. Parking and restrooms are available. Here's a two-minute video tour. Learn more about the museum, and the non-profit organization that operates it, at www.raleighfiremuseum.org.

Please note that antique fire engines are located elsewhere. Though you'll see a hand-drawn hose reel at the museum, all antique horse- and motor-drawn apparatus is stored at at Fire Station 28 at 3500 Forestville Road. Visitors are welcome. Or schedule a tour at  www.raleighfiremuseum.org/tours. Here's more information about both destinations:
