About this site
Fire Files Digitial Library aims to preserve the memory of the fire service past. It is new and small but will be regularly updated as materials are discovered and made available.
Current collections and exhibits include the
- National Commission on Fire Prevention and Control: | pictures | documents | correspondence | bulletins
- National Fire Prevention and Control Administration: | brochures | Fireword newsletters | speeches | documents
- Fully Involved Newsletter (early US Fire Administration newsletter)
- Federal Fire Prevention and Public Education Posters
- Federal Fire Council: | Fire Experience Reports | Annual Meeting Minutes | Special Reports
- Fire department histories - many excellent fire department histories are available now online but they are often difficult to find. They can sometimes exist largely unnoticed within large university or historical society digital library collections. I've added scores of these to this database in order to create a handy directory to online fire department histories.
About myself - I'm a professional librarian working in a library focused on fire, EMS and emergency management resources. This project however is one that I do on my own personal time and is not associated with any organization or institution. You can learn more about me by visiting my website at: http://aemetz.magnt.com/
