#ThisDayInHistory #DayOfRemembrance
On April 19, 1995, at 9:02 a.m. a 4,800-pound ammonium nitrate-fuel oil bomb exploded in a Ryder truck parked at the north entrance of the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building in downtown Oklahoma City, killing 168 people and injuring approximately 850. The governor’s office reported that 30 children were orphaned, 219 children lost at least one parent, 462 people were left homeless, and 7,000 people lost their workplace. The City of Oklahoma City’s Final Report estimated property damage to more than 300 buildings in a 48-square-block area. The bombing was the nation’s worst single act of domestic terrorism (superceded in numbers of dead only by the attack on the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001, in New York City).

Today, #WeRemember those who were killed, those who survived, and those changed forever by the tragedy on April 19, 1995.

To all our Sisters and Brothers on the Frontline be safe and thank you from the KFFM.

Since we don't know when the Kansas Firefighters Museum will be opening again to the public the museum would like to make a special offer.
This Saturday (April 4th) from 11am to 2 pm we will be offering 25% off everything in the gift shop!!
Here's how it will work. We will have the north window (by train tracks) open for you to walk up, pick up, and pay for your items. We will take cash or credit cards.
If you absolutely do not want to get out and would like us to a porch delivery you (Wichita area only) we will but cash payments only.
But wait, there's more! If you buy a Kansas Firefighters Museum or Engine House No. 6 t-shirt you will get a one time free admission when you wear it to the museum when we are back open to the public.
Since many of the the items you see posted are limited quantity it will be a first come first serve basis. Sorry no holds.
Message us with any questions.
We hope to see you Saturday!!!

Some scumbag(not the men pictured)broke into the Kansas Fire Museum’s storage container and stole everything so keep your eye out for people selling brass nozzles, sprinkler heads, antique extinguishers and if it’s fishy contact the police. Also if you see someone melting down said items or trying to unload large amounts of brass contact the police or the museum. Extremely sad, the retired guys that run the Kansas Fire Museum work their butts off to run that place. If you have never been there go, it’s a cool museum.

03/13/2020

Due to the size and the close proximity of space inside the KFFM we will be closed until further notice, sorry if this will be an inconvenience for families over spring break.

Captain Urban Eck, 51
Wichita Fire Department. Wichita, KS
Captain Eck assisted with fire department operations at a second-alarm apartment fire. He and his crew operated at the scene for over 4 hours. While in rehab at the scene, Captain Eck's vital signs were elevated. Captain Eck and his engine company returned to service and responded to two additional emergency incidents prior to going off duty at 0800 hours on December 14, 2009. Captain Eck continued to have physical symptoms. He reported for duty his next shift on December 16, 2009, but reported being tired and congested. Captain Eck was admitted to the hospital on December 18 and was diagnosed with heart failure. Heart surgery was performed on December 29, 2009. Captain Eck did not recover from the surgery and died on January 2, 2010. His surgery was an attempt to repair damage to a heart valve, an acute event caused by the extreme physical exertion at the December 13, 2009, fire.

Hi this is Tonya Peissig again...just a note for you fighter fighters that didn't know the area. My Mom grew up 3 houses down from the pool on Topeka, we would swim at the pool every summer day. Also she would run down and take care of the fire department when the fire men were called out. That was the south end at that time and as it turned out the Memorial is there on that block as well as my Grandmother working for the church which later bought her house and part of the cross is on the land. We have in detail the goings and comings in our life and am so proud to have traveled all these years with you. We are Blessed by a Family larger than life and our hearts are with yours everyday. For the firefighters I would love to hear of some of your memories of Dale J Mishler.....Truly yours Tonya Thank You Again.... for the Representation of your humbling service that you have given everyone in need. Daughter of Dale J. Mishler and Teresa A special acknowledgement to Captain Kenny Ast and Dan Mishler
Can you tell me if Cole and Lindsey Peissig;s name is on the pavement now, Grandson of Dale J. Mishler....I ordered it at the reveling of the Marker set for the fallen fighters at Ylingling Honored. Thank You again for your remembrance of all our Fire Fighter Families! May God be with YOU....ALWAYS
