Today was the last day as a Long Beach Firefighters Museum volunteer for Milo Brown. Milo served for 30 years as a volunteer and he will be missed as he moves on to the next chapter of his life. Milo will be very busy visiting family. He will return to check on us have coffee and tell stories.

Our museum was honored and happy to provide 6 motorized, 2 horse drawn, 2 hand drawn apparatus plus many small artifacts for the 2016 Metro Chiefs Conference. We could not have done it without the help from the Long Beach Fire Department, Long Beach Search & Rescue, and the dedicated volunteers of our museum. Thank You to all that helped and we will be posting more pictures.

In Friday's all-new Dateline, 21st-century tracking technology plays a pivotal role in the search for clues. While we were out in the field, our crew decided to look into some older technology, high-tech at the time, used by Long Beach's first responders.

Our museum has made some major changes and upgrades in the last couple of years. Like us on Facebook and we will try to keep Facebook more current, after we learn how to use it better.
