It's a chance to pay tribute to our first-responders and to learn about the history and tradition of fire fighting here in the Garden State.

The New Jersey Fire Museum and Fallen Firefighters Memorial Open House will include a free gift for all young people who attend and activities for children. Parents can take pictures of their children in and around the trucks. Visitors will be able to watch a dramatic demonstration by the N.J. division of the National Fire Sprinkler Association that will show the benefit of home fire sprinkler systems.
The New Jersey Fire Museum has a collection of fire apparatus dating back to 1814 and as new as the 1970s. The collection is made up of hand-drawn, horse-drawn, and motorized units.
A significant part of the 5th Annual Open House will be a Memorial Service dedicated to N.J. firefighters who have suffered Line of Duty Deaths. The service will also recognize all firefighters who have faithfully served their communities.
