WF Fire and Police Museum running out of room

The Wichita Falls Fire and Police Museum is looking for a new building for their fire trucks and many other artifacts.

WICHITA FALLS, Texas (TNN) - The Wichita Falls Fire and Police Museum is looking for a new building for their firetrucks and many other artifacts.

In the time since they started the museum, they’ve gone from having two firetrucks to 18 trucks and counting.

Some of their trucks age back to the 40′s, and they’re running out of storage room for their collection.

They are even having to turn away trucks that are being offered to them, due to the lack of space.

Retired Fireman Ronnie Teakell said it has gotten to the point where they no longer have room to work on the trucks.

Teakell said their mission is to preserve the history of the Wichita Falls Fire and Police Departments, but just need a little help due to being 100% volunteer-based.
