Welcome to Oregon Fire Service Museum, Memorial & Learning Center

  • preserving and sharing with the public our structural and wildland fire service heritage with a focus on Oregon

  • raising public awareness of fire prevention and safety

  • honoring the fire service community


Since ancient times, the people and technology used to fight fires have played an integral role in society.  Oregon Fire Service Museum (OFSM) is a 501(c)3 not-for-profit dedicated to sharing Oregon’s rich history of structural and wildland fire service, providing and promoting public safety education for all ages, and honoring those in fire service.  By preserving, restoring, and displaying fire service artifacts, the statewide fire museum tells the story of evolving fire prevention and suppression technology.

Construction of our new museum building is underway at Powerland Heritage Park in the heart of the Willamette Valley.  Located just off I-5 near Oregon’s state capital, Salem, the museum is part of a community of heritage museums.   You are invited to visit our site during one of Powerland’s scheduled events and see a small sample of our collection of fire apparatus, check out our interactive temporary Information Center, and maybe even try your hand at a bucket brigade or other kid-friendly activity.  Follow our progress on Facebook.


OFSM is an all-volunteer organization.  Contact us to volunteer, or click on the link to learn more about ways you can get involved.  Memberships help fund the museum operating budget. Your tax-deductible donation will help with construction of our phase 1 museum building, exhibit creation, and further expansion of the museum to accommodate our collection.


Oregon Fire Service Museum is endorsed by the Oregon Fire Marshals Association, the Oregon Fire District Directors Association, the Oregon Volunteer Firefighters Association, Marion County Fire District #1, and the Chemeketa Community College’s Fire Science Program.
