The Board of Directors of the National Fire Heritage Center (NFHC) joins with our nation’s fire service as we honor the legacy of Robbie Robertson. Robertson served as a founder of the NFHC and devoted countless hours to preserving our nation’s written fire service history.
“It is only appropriate that we create this special Robbie Robertson Building Fund to honor his memory,” explains Chief Ronny Coleman, Chairman of the NFHC Board of Directors. “We thank all of those who have contacted us asking for this opportunity to help ensure that Robbie’s vision lives on.”

There are also ways for friends to share the page throughout their respective social media outlets. The Board has set a goal of $100,000 with this Memorial and we hope many join Robbie’s team.
“Robbie’s passion for the fire service, fire prevention, and specifically the National Fire Heritage Center were an inspiration to all of us,” adds Wayne Powell, Executive Director of the NFHC. “We hope to raise a sizable amount so that Robbie’s legacy will be preserved forever in a way that continues to grow fire service leaders.”

The NFHC is a 501c3 organization, and is dedicated to preservation of the perishable specific to Fire and encompassing all who are committed to its purposes. The group understands the value of collecting, resorting, preserving, and insuring access to the historical written word of both America’s Fire services and Fire protection disciplines.
