North Charleston and American LaFrance Fire Museum and Educational Center

The North Charleston and American LaFrance Fire Museum and Educational Center houses the antique collection of firefighting vehicles belonging to American LaFrance, LLC. Enthusiasts and casual observers alike can learn about the history of fire fighting and marvel at the evolution of a most useful invention.

The collection of eighteen antique fire trucks includes a hand operated fire pump and two horse-drawn steam engines. Other exhibits range from a cinema with a talking robot and a film depicting the history of fire fighting to the home hazards interactive exhibit and the Great Escape exhibit. The Great Escape not only provides fun for young visitors, but allows them to experience the thrill of flying down a fire pole and learn smart ways to exit a burning building.
