This promotional film, produced by the Dallas Firefighters Training School, features prominent Dallas landmarks, including the John Neely Bryan cabin and Historic District, the Magnolia Building, Market Hall, views of the skyline, and aerial footage. Also included are scenes of Dallas fire stations and firefighters on the job.

The Dallas Firefighter's Museum's film collection captures a variety of activities performed by the Dallas Firefighters. While a few films focus on fire fighting and training, most feature community events such as the fair, toy repair, pump races, and even a Miss Flame pageant. The Dallas Firefighter's Museum is housed in one of the city's oldest fire stations; the building served as a working fire station from the time it was built in 1907 until 1975, when the museum took over. The museum aims to preserve the rich history of the Dallas Fire Department through exhibits and educational experiences. Visit their Website at http://www.dallasfiremuseum.com.
