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 (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.




    The Fire Museum of Memphis will be closed for renovations on May 27 and 28, 2015.  We will re-open on Friday, May 29, 2015 at 9 AM.  At this time we will begin our Summer hours which are from 9 AM- 6 PM Monday- Saturday and 1 PM to 6 PM, Sunday.

  • We at the Fire Museum of Memphis hope you have said "thank you" to our EMT's and Paramedics this week to show your appreciation.

    EMT's and Paramedics dedicate their lives to serving the public. They are on standby 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. A holiday for them is the opportunity to be in service and ready for the next call. They save lives, help others during times of illness and injury. EMS are the ones in the ditches, working side by side with other First Responders, rescuing passengers from a car accident. In Memphis, they are also Firefighters. They are the ones who risk their lives to save others. Through the course of a year, EMS personnel are rarely recognized for their heroic efforts. They are never thanked for their hundreds of hours of continuing education. However, EMS Week is a perfect time for our community to recognize and thank them.

    To all of our brothers and sisters in EMS - Stay safe out there. EMS providers have a high rate of back and knee injuries, are assaulted by patients, and experience high rates of stress. We've lost some of our own over the years and the First Responder Community is always there to help each other out...

    To help honor the men and women of your Memphis Fire EMS, our historians have added a detailed history of the EMS Bureau of the Memphis Fire Department to our Bureaus Page.
