    Dallas firefighters battle a number of fires, both real and as training exercises. Footage includes the aftermath of conflagrations at the Good Street Baptist Church and a Burrus Texo feed elevator, and a truck full of firemen donning a sign that reads "Dallas Won! Houston Lost! Houston's Mayor Eats Crow Tonight!"

    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.
