Facing the Flames: The History of Fire Fighting in Grey County
We need your help! Grey Roots is working on a new exhibit: Facing the Flames: The History of Fire Fighting in Grey County. This original exhibit will feature the Owen Sound Fire Department Engine No. 1, a restored 1923 La France Pumper Fire Truck.
We’re looking for photos, videos, and stories relating to fire fighting in Grey County: of fire fighters in action or of unforgettable fires. We’re particularly in need of images from outside the City of Owen Sound (Durham, Dundalk, Hanover, the Blue Mountains, Meaford, etc.). Images and stories from any time period are welcome, including recent footage and photos.
Images can be sent to Sim Salata, Collections Manager:
Have questions about what we’re looking for? Sim can answer those as well!
Submitted materials may be used in the exhibition, and those who submitted an item that is selected will be contacted with follow up details.
