The Columbia Fire Department Headquarters moved to a new building in 1995 at 1800 Laurel Street during Fire Prevention Week Activities in October, 1996. A front portion of the new building is dedicated to preserving Columbia Fire Department memorabilia. The museum educates the public about the importance of the Columbia Fire Department and the professional men and women within its service. Museum attractions date back as far as the mid-1800's and include a 1929 American LaFrance fire engine and 1903 horse-drawn steamer, interactive exhibits, equipment from days gone by, pictures of the six fire chiefs that have served Columbia since the early 1900's and a photo history of firefighting in Columbia.

Special group tours and field trips are welcome at this museum. Enjoy the rich history and tradition of South Carolina's largest fire department.
