Los Angeles Fire Department Museum and Memorial

A few weeks ago while wondering around LA waiting for an event to start my friend Marie and I stumbled upon a really cool statue of firemen that was near a firehouse (I forgot to take a picture of it, of course!). While talking to a lady outside we learned the it was actually a museum dedicated to the firemen of Los Angeles with a 9/11 exhibit upstairs. We did have time to go through the 9/11 part, but these are some of the things we saw inside. For more information on the museum, click here.
