This footage, most likely used for a promotional or educational film,captures a group of students talking with a Dallas police officer. The interaction appears friendly, with the officer placing his uniform cap on top of one of the young women’s heads. The film is a great representation of late 1960s and early 1970s fashion, showcasing plaid bellbottoms, flower shirts, and high-wasted, gold pants.
The Dallas Firefighters 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. The museum’s primary goal is to teach fire safety to children and widen its outreach to the Dallas community. Visit their website at http://www.dallasfiremuseum.com.
