Brewer Public Safety Museum Holds Grand Opening
After a year and a half of fundraising, the Brewer Public Safety Museum is now officially open. The museum held a ribbon cutting ceremony on Saturday morning at the Public Safety Building. The museum features a fire truck from 1947 and a 6-foot steel beam recovered from the World Trade Center. Also on display are photos and other memoribilia from the police and fire departments’ histories.”It’s good to recognize our past especially because firefighting has such a rich tradition behind it, so it’s good to recognize those that came before us and not only those, but the people that are here now and the people that are going to be here in the future,” said Chief Gary Parent of the Brewer Fire Department.Admission to the museum is free. To visit, stop by the Public Safety Building Monday through Friday from 8:00 AM – 4:00 PM.
