Volunteers

Volunteer

Volunteers are the backbone of the Texas Fire Museum 
Educational Programs

Docents lead our Educational Program. This program focuses on classroom students in grades five through eight, that allows the Texas Fire Museum to become a classroom that opens the door to our fire fighting heritage in Texas. 

Speakers Bureau

The Texas Fire Museum offers talented volunteers who speak to civic clubs and other groups that are interested in it's fascinating history. If you enjoy public speaking, we would love to have you join. 






History Docents 

Educating students of all ages about fire fighters, their accomplishments and place in United States history is our focus. History Docents are trained to lead guided tours of the TFM. They guide visitors on tours, answer questions, and build the excitement and knowledge about this extraordinary time in America’s history. 

Operations and Administrative 

Volunteers take tour reservations, coordinate programs, maintain our databases, develop our web pages, answer phones, write our newsletter and handle many other tasks.



Maintenance 

The Museum is seventy-five years old and in excellent condition, both in appearance and in operation. The facility is maintained by an all-volunteer group under the guidance of a Facility Director. Maintenance Volunteers work on building systems, keep the brass fittings beautiful, chip and paint and do all of the duties required to keep our Museum a shining example of fire service excellence. All of this is an ongoing job that is done with love and care by a fabulous group of volunteers.
