  • The Fire Museum of Memphis has proudly accepted on loan, for a three year period, a refurbished 1885 “Champion” hand pulled chemical engine, built by the Fire Extinguisher Mfg. Company of Chicago.  It is one of only three known chemical engines of its kind for that period according to owner, Richard Janne of Wichita, KS.  “From their entrance into the fire service in 1872 with hand drawn and horse drawn apparatus, on into the motorized era of the 1910’s and 1920’s, until their demise by the booster system and the final realization that “chemicals” were not better than water, the fire department chemical engines wrote for themselves a major and significant chapter of fire service history.”  W. Fred Conway, Chemical Fire Engines, 1987.

The Fire Museum of Memphis has launched a fundraising campaign that includes a new commemorative brick program. The Fire Museum has begun selling engraved bricks that will be placed in the courtyard of the museum. The bricks can recognize an active or former firefighter, or they can be purchased as a memorial or honorarium. Bricks can also be purchased as a show of support for the Fire Museum or the Memphis Fire Department. For information about purchasing a brick, please go to https://fmm.engravedbricks.com/. (Note: there is no www before this web address.)  If you would like to contribute to the fundraising campaign or order a brick over the phone, please call 901-636-5650.
