Calgary’s firefighting service has a long history of protecting he city, and an exhibit at Lougheed House will be shining a spotlight on the work they have performed over the years, as well as the equipment that they use to do it.

The displays, which have been organized through the cooperation of Lougheed House and the Firefighters museum of Calgary, will highlight the city’s fire brigade from the years 1885 ton 1939. It has over 70 different objects on display to the public, with many of the pieces are very delicate and not often seen, such as flags, uniforms and bugles.

The event, which has been designed to be family friendly, will tell the stories of the men and women who kept the city safe. The curator of the museum, who is the daughter of a firefighter, has even included details about Embers, who was the mascot for the fire brigade. The binding process can be used to create handouts, which contain details about each of the pieces on display and can be given to everyone who comes to see to exhibit.

The Pomp and Circumstance exhibit will be located in Lougheed House, which can be found at 707 13 Ave SE. Admission to the event is $8.50 each, and it will run until January 29th. Anyone who would like to find out more is asked to visit its website for further details.
