The Victorville Fire Museum is getting some disturbing comments about a unknown to us incident regarding a disabled Police officer traveling across the Country.

Our museum is dedicated to the past members of the now disbanded Victorville Fire Dept. Any comments should be directed to the San Bernardino County Fire Dept that contracts with the city of Victorville.

Red lights outside the fire museum work for the first time in 30 years.

Excellent advice !!

Too many people get killed in domestic house fires - close all your doors before you go to bed and install a smoke detector. Look at the difference between a house involved in a fire with doors closed and open

Awesome !!

We are nearing the holiday season with different holidays celebrated by different cultures and different religions in different ways. If you have lost a loved one to death, there is one thing that is common to all of us and strongly apparent as families gather to celebrate - An Empty Chair! How do we journey through this season bringing that empty chair from a reminder of mourning to a remembrance of joy?
