Ring the alarm…the Auto Museum to present “To the Rescue” fire trucks exhibit

In partnership with the Sacramento Fire Museum and sponsored by the Firefighters Burn Institute, the California Automobile Museum is proud and excited to present “To the Rescue,” an all new exhibit that highlights early fire trucks, equipment and people who worked to save our city.  The new exhibit will be on display March 16 through May 29, 2017.

Since the invention of the automobile, dedicated fire fighters have used the technology to improve the speed and methods used to fight fires that routinely caused significant damage in urban areas prior to modern infrastructure, regulations, etc. The colorful and dramatic exhibit includes many of the early fire trucks, fire-fighting equipment and other objects that served to save our city from the late 1800s and through the 1940s. And, as a special opportunity on most weekends, interested guests will also be able to experience sitting in a 1921 Graham fire truck (please see website for a schedule of availability).

To kick off the new exhibit, there is a special opening night event on Thursday evening, March 16 where guests will be able to talk to local firefighters while sipping on beer and wine. For more information about the “To the Rescue” exhibit or the California Automobile Museum in general, please call 916-442-6802 or visit www.calautomuseum.org.
