Fire Alarm Building to House Tulsa Firefighters Museum

A historic Tulsa building will soon become the home to the very first Tulsa Firefighters Museum, reports newson6.com.

The Fire Alarm Building, built in 1931, originally served as the central communication center for the Tulsa Fire Department; and with its exterior draped in fire motifs, Debbie Bailey with the TFD Museum Board believes it will be a fitting home.

Firefighters started a fundraising campaign in January to purchase the building from the American Lung Association of the Southwest and its President and CEO, Bill Pfeifer, was pleased to turn over the building.
