OPENING DELAYED

Despite the best efforts of our volunteers, the Museum has encountered construction delays involving both electrical permits and alarm system completion.  Both of these items must be taken care of before our final building inspection and the issuance of our occupancy permit.   Our opening exhibit has been planned.  Watch this space for notification of THE DATE!!  We are anxious to show you the progress we have made and share our fall/winter exhibit with the public.


New Children’s Newsletter


The Western Reserve Fire Museum is committed to increasing fire safety awareness and education, especially to our most vulnerable population: children. To help spread our educational messaging, the museum has developed a brand new Children’s Newsletter, the Junior Fire Brigade. This quarterly publication will have fire safety tips, articles, and activities. It will be available online as a PDF and in print once the museum opens. Catch up on the Junior Fire Brigade!

Memorial Paver Program

The Museum is pleased to announce the start of its Memorial Paver Program. Commemorative pavers can now be purchased for placement on the Firefighters Memorial Plaza, the triangular area directly in front of the new Museum entrance. The Pavers are an 8-in. x 8-in square that can be engraved with personalized text. They are high quality with a durable black epoxy paint used to highlight the engraved text. The cost of each paver will be $200.00 for a Museum member and $250.00 for non-members.

 

Please click here to download forms. Print, fill out, and mail the order forms to The Western Reserve Fire Museum, Attn: Pavers at 310 Carnegie Avenue, Cleveland, OH 44115 or email to pavers@wrfmc.com.

 

Positioning of your paver will be on a first come, first served basis. The first row of 16 pavers will be set when we have the orders and the engraving is complete. We are expecting to install this first row within the next 30 days and to have the full first block sold and installed this year. Thereafter, we will install pavers no less than annually.

 

This is a once in a lifetime opportunity for our supporters to become a permanent part of the Museum. These pavers are a wonderful way to celebrate any special event or honor a firefighter or family member in one of the most prominent locations in all of downtown Cleveland.
