The Frederick County Fire & Rescue Museum is OPEN for the 2023 summer museum season!! The history of the Frederick County Fire and Rescue Service comes alive as you view artifacts, pictures and early apparatus of the fire and rescue companies that have served Frederick County for over 200 years!

Shown on the home page is the artwork of artist William Cochran to develop the glass mural "VOLUNTEERS" proudly displayed in front of the museum.

At this time we do not have motorized apparatus displayed as the 1939 Ahrens-Fox is undergoing extensive maintenance. We are working with local fire companies and collectors to hopefully have an excellent representation of early motorized apparatus on display later this year.

The museum is located at 300B South Seton Avenue in Emmitsburg just a short walk north of the National Emergency Training Center. The museum is open on Saturday and Sunday each weekend until the end of September from 12 noon to 4PM. The museum is closed holiday weekends.
