The Los Angeles County Fire Museum at the Mayne Events Center will be hosting a grand opening celebration on Saturday afternoon, July 14, at its newly constructed building in Bellflower. The fire museum collection includes the popular Engine 51 from the 1970s TV show “Emergency!”, Granite Mountain Hotshots’ Buggy 7A, as well as other antique apparatus.
In addition to enjoying the new museum, guests will have the opportunity to meet and interact with Los Angeles County Fire Department first responders, experience exhibitions of modern fire apparatus, and watch fire safety demonstrations. The fun-filled afternoon will feature food trucks, a live band at Pirate Park, and special guests including Granite Mountain Hotshot Brendan McDonough and actors Randolph Mantooth, Kevin Tighe, and Mike Stoker of the the 1970s TV show “Emergency!”.
“It has really been a fun and rewarding experience to get here and finally see the brand new building, ready for us to move in. The feeling is indescribable,” said LACoFD Fire Captain and Los Angeles County Fire Museum President Paul Schneider.
Everyone is welcome at this FREE community event filled with fun activities and opportunities to learn about Los Angeles County fire service history. No tickets required.
