The Dawson City Fire Department has served the Dawson community since the Gold Rush and has been in operation for over 120 years; making it the oldest fire station in the Yukon. The Dawson City Fire Fighter’s Museum is a non-profit organization run by members of Dawson City’s Volunteer Fire Department.
The museum’s mission is to preserve its firefighting heritage by acquiring and restoring memorabilia of the fire department’s past. The fire department has acquired many unique pieces of equipment and vehicles over the years, which are now on display for visitors. These include extensive collections of vintage fire engines, apparatuses, photographs, and artifacts.
