BURN: SAC Fire Tech Road Trip

Sat Nov 3, 2012 9:00-5:30

We're heading to Hollywood- and we want you to join us!

Join SAC Fire Tech friends and family as we "ride the rails" to Hollywood for museum, lunch and a movie.

Board the Metrolink at the station nearest your home and meet us in the third car from the engine for the ride to Union Station. There, we will transfer to the Red Line which will take us to the Los Angeles Fire Department Museum and Memorial.

We will hop back on the Red Line for a short ride to North Hollywood where we can get some lunch. Vicious Dogs is near the theater, has food under $5 and great reviews (linked below)

After lunch, we are going to see the movie "BURN: One Year on the Fronts Lines of the Battle to Save Detroit" This movie is in limited release...so limited that it will only be shown in this theater for one week.

Meet us for all, or part of our day- and bring your friends and family. If you will be providing your own transportation, be sure to check the destination websites for parking information.

Los Angeles Fire Dept. Museum & Memorial

Saturday, Nov. 3rd 2012 at 11am-12pm

1355 N Cahuenga Blvd

Los Angeles, CA


The LAFD Hollywood museum (Old Fire Station 27) is housed in what was once the largest fire station west of the Mississippi. With more than 20,000 square feet of space, a number of famous pieces of firefighting apparatus, and hundreds of artifacts on display, there’s something for the entire family here. Located just a few blocks from the famous Hollywood Walk of Fame and the Chinese Theater, you won't find a more unique and welcoming fire museum on either side of the Mississippi.

This museum is not only home to some of the city's most important and remarkable history, it is also a place where retired firefighters like to spend their time. Being a firefighter isn't like most jobs, and when it's time to retire, the service stays with most men and women for the rest of their lives. And that makes this museum even more unique. On any given Saturday, you can bring your family to the fire station and hear about real fires, from the guys who fought them and put them out.
