About this event

Celebrate the reopening of the African American Firefighter Museum with Summer Sundays! This is a great afternoon for the whole family, with special surprises for future firefighters. You will:

  • Take a 40-minute guided tour led by an expert historian, filled with stories and little-known details about the African American firefighters' legacy here in Los Angeles
  • Explore the grounds of our historic Fire Station No. 30, which operated as a segregated firehouse from 1924 to 1955
  • Experience a real fire truck up close
  • Enjoy unique and fun photo opportunities
  • .... and more!

We thank our community of supporters and look forward to welcoming you back for Summer Sundays at the African American Firefighter Museum.
