Fire Prevention Season

Back in the olden day when I was in public schools, we always had to prepare a "Fire Prevention" project each year. If'n TEA or others still require that, these sources may be useful:
A Google search for “texas fire museum” brought many citations. The first 500 citations were noticed and the cities below were found with significant websites. In all there may be a couple of hundred “museums” large, small, or identifiable parts within larger museums. The many small museums tend to be associated with “fire” organizations than general museum networks.
