The Dallas Fire Department not only fights fires, but also sponsors a variety of community events, such as the ones captured in this film footage. Highlights include the Miss Flame Beauty Pageant, rescue demonstrations and pump races at the State Fair, and a firefighting training course.

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.
