Keep Your Memphis Real Estate Safe Through Education at the Fire Museum
The history of firefighting is a fascinating one, and Memphis real estate owners are lucky to be able to visit the Fire Museum, near Uptown Memphis homes. Located at Fire Engine House No. 1, on 118 Adams Avenue, the Fire Museum has an array of artifacts. Check out historic fire helmets, gas masks, old tools, and beautiful old cast iron fire truck toys. The Hale Water Tower is a piece of antique equipment used for fighting fires in multi-story buildings. It was built in 1897 and used until 1978, when it was honorably retired.
Families living in Memphis real estate can also get some lessons in modern fire safety. Check out the exhibit on smoke alarms in the Snowden Building, then head over to the second floor of Engine House No. 1 for more. Kids can learn about fire hazards in the Fire Safety House. They can also practice getting out of a burning house in the escape maze or play fire safety video games in the fire safety arcade.
