We could not do what we do without the support and sacrifice of sponsors, First Responders, and contributors. The personal contributions of our First Responders is what differentiates the Fire Museum of Memphis from others. The collaborative relationship between the Memphis Fire Department and the Fire Museum of Memphis is unparalleled and a point of pride for the museum. These pages salute and honor this special group and pay tribute to the First Responders who have made the ultimate sacrifice to protect the citizens of Memphis.
The Red Door Membership Fund was created to allow Memphis Fire Department employees the opportunity to support the Fire Museum of Memphis by making contributions through payroll deductions, Active and retired members of the department have contributed over $1,000,000 since the inception of the museum in 1994 and its official opening in October, 1998, and continue to donate their time and mney to preserve their rich tradition an history. To continue helping support the best Fire Museum in America, they now need you. Only fire service personnel and their families can participate in the Red Door Fund. You can get a Red Door T-shirt, family membership, and a special place in the Red Door Book of Names.
