Have you ever been to a fire fighting museum? Let’s visit the largest fire department located in Kiev. In spite of such disadvantages as outdated equipment and acute shortage of firemen in that city, it’s necessary to mention that a museum of fire engineering is available. It doesn’t contain many exhibits but those ones present reflect every stage of fire service development.
The fire department was built simultaneous to the block in the end of 1970.
The department also embraces summer and winter sports complexes where Kiev garrison is trained and international contests are held. Besides, there are apartments for personnel on the upper floors.
The museum is quite small and was opened in the beginning of 2004.
Its exhibits give us an opportunity to understand the way fire equipment looked like during the last 120 years. Some of them don’t have any counterparts and were used only by the Kiev garrison. Can you imagine that all the cars here are in a good condition?
