The Greensburg Volunteer Fire Department shares history with an open house at the museum


The Greensburg Volunteer Fire Department held an open house for its museum.

The museum includes antique trucks and fire equipment.

The largest collection of miniature emergency vehicles in the state is also on display.

Some of the museum’s firefighters brought stories from previous emergencies they’ve helped with. One of them told Channel 11 about a major fire he encountered at St. Vincent College in the 1960s.

“We crafted for nine hours straight, and we never stopped. 10 degrees below zero. About 9-10 inches of snow was a wildfire,” said Ed Cox of Greensburg Hose Company.

The museum is open the second Tuesday of every month from 9 a.m. to noon and the fourth Saturday of every month from 6 to 8 p.m. at 406 S Pennsylvania Avenue.

Admission to the museum is free.
