As the first and only free standing African American Firefighter (AAFF) Museum within the United States, we are seeking your support. What makes our AAFF Museum unique is that this location was originally Fire Station #30, which was one of two only segregated fire stations in Los Angeles, California between the periods of 1924 and 1955. In recent years Fire Station #30 was restored, and became the first African American Firefighter national museum on December 13, 1997. The AAFF Museum is also designated as a City of Los Angeles Historic-Cultural Monument (No. 289). . Our mission is to collect, preserve and share the heritage of pioneering African Americans in both the Los Angeles City and County Fire Departments from 1892 to the present along with showcasing other successful African American firemen and firewomen in the US.
The African American Firefighter Museum is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization. In 2012, our vision is enlarged to serve in the following areas:
