Winona Fire Department: The past forty years (08/04/2013)
August 7 12:05 p.m. at the Winona County History Center

Retired fire chief Ed Krall will explore the changes in the Winona Fire Department from his 40 year career as a firefighter. He will also talk about how the Winona Fire Department operates. Winona’s fire department has a long history dating back to the 19th century; one of the first in the state, because of the fire hazards of the lumber mills that once lined the riverfront. While visiting the History Center one can see the old steam engine in the entrance and additional early firefighting equipment in the exhibit gallery. Spot and Billie, two Winona Fire Department horses used before the days of motorized fire equipment, were so well trained that they reputedly once towed the fire rig six blocks without a driver on the wagon, guided to their destination by the glow of the fire in the sky.

Food for Thought programs are free and open to the public. Attendees are welcome to bring their lunch. For more programs and information log onto www.winonahistory.org or call 507-454-2723.
