Becoming the Bravest

October 2023 - April 2024

“Becoming the Bravest” highlights the journey and training every New York City firefighter has to take to become one. The focal point of this new exhibit will be that all firefighters—from the newly graduated to the highest-ranking uniformed member, the Chief of Department—all started in the same place: the Probationary Firefighters School at the Fire Academy. Using photographs, uniforms, helmets, patches, firefighter equipment and other unique artifacts from the Museum's collection, as well as information, photographs, and video supplied by the Department, the Museum will educate visitors about the incredible journey undertaken to become New York's Bravest.
