A history displayed. The Daytona Beach Fire Department has always been a huge advocate of maintaining the long-standing history of the department. A local historical museum that is dedicated to showcasing the history of the City of Daytona Beach approached the Daytona Beach Fire Department to be featured as the main exhibit for a 6 month period. This opportunity provides the ability to display the 120 year evolution of firefighting in Daytona Beach, starting in the late 1800’s and moving through the modern day fire service. The exhibit features original photographs, authentic artifacts, and other collectibles that document the department’s transition throughout the decades.
