As a long-time advocate for the California Fire Museum and Safety Learning Center, and for preserving the heritage of our California firefighters in a permanent facility in the Great Park, I am thrilled that at my urging the Irvine City Council and the Fire Museum have now agreed on a Memorandum of Understanding for five acres in the Great Park to be designated by the City of Irvine for a 31,000 sq. state-of-the-art, interactive, sensory immersive Fire Museum and Safety Learning Center.
The mission of the California Fire Museum is:
- To preserve and protect the history and heritage of the fire service in general, with special emphasis on the California Fire Services.
- To collect, restore, preserve and exhibit apparatus, equipment, art and artifacts of the firefighting profession.
- To provide life safety, fire safety and fire prevention education to the community.
- To educate the public about firefighters, firefighting and emergency services.
