The Fire Museum Project


Since 2004 more than 100 people have died in Cleveland fires.

The Western Reserve Fire Museum and Education Center is being built to help prevent these tragedies. Our primary objective is to provide a first-class regional fire museum and education center to dramatically increase fire safety education and help reduce the numbers of fire deaths and injuries in Northeast Ohio.

In October, 2003, the Western Reserve Fire Museum at Cleveland, Inc. secured a long-term lease from the City of Cleveland for the building that was formerly Fire Station #28 and the Clevel
and Fire Alarm Office and Dispatch Center. Constructed in 1926, the fire station is perfectly suited to our objective. Located directly across from Progressive Field, at the foot of the Lorain-Carnegie Bridge, the station is easy to find and will become the hub of firefighting history and fire safety education for Northeast Ohio.
