All divisions and functions of the fire department featured, along with the history of the fire department depicted in visual timelines and text narratives. Read the complete text history.
Copies of the book are available for reading at the Raleigh Fire Museum. The museum is open monthly, on the second Saturday of each month, from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.
Production started in February 2012, and the first portraits were taken by Strawbridge Studios in April. Crew photos of all stations were submitted in the fall, and the winter months were spent finishing the writing and design. Read production notes and more.
Three earlier commemorative books were published by in 1984, 2002, and 2007. Though the first two are out of print, the 2007 book is still available from the publisher, at www.mtpublishing.com.
