Building for the Future…
When the Board of the Dallas Firefighter's Museum decided that they wanted to expand the part of the mission statement that speaks to teaching fire safety to children-they decided to increase the outreach exponentially. With an emphasis on fire and life safety education, they knew that the Museum would need an upgrade to its physical facility as the Museum has never been renovated since it opened as a Museum in 1975. In order for the mission to be achieved, funds needed to be raised to support the expansion of mission.
The current Museum was built as a fire station in 1907, as the Fair Park Fire Station. The interior of
the building has not been renovated since it opened as a Museum in 1975: this means that the
Museum needed to be both restored and renovated. Early inspections and conversations with
construction experts proved true. In fact, their work indicated that the restoration of the exterior of the
facility need to be completed first. A leadership team from the Museum and the construction team
worked hand in hand. Working in tandem with the fundraising team, the first-ever capital campaign
was divided into a two phase project: Phase 1 restoration of the exterior; and, Phase 2 renovation of
the interior. In the spring of 2017, the Museum completed Phase 1 of the Capital Campaign.
