& DONATED COLLECTIONS
回到1998年，霍华德和保罗·施耐德听说在诺特的浆果农场周围有一台蒸汽机. It took 30 years, but with constant contact and coercing, the apparatus was donated to the museum in 2014. Thank you Knott’s Berry Farm and especially to Marta, an executive assistant at the park. We brought home a Waterous steam engine, year unknown. We think it is from around the late 1890’s. The research has begun!
BP ARCO - '41 Fire Engine
BP ARCO Donated a 1941 Ford fire engine to us in the early 1980’s. It had served the Arco refineries for years, and it continued its work for the Museum in musters and as a tow vehicle.
The Ford underwent a complete restoration led by Vice President Joe Woyjeck. 它曾在Artesia的Old Station 30展出，但现在位于云顶娱乐的Shop设施.
云顶娱乐用它作为一辆水龙带，在加州各地举办名为“召集者”的比赛. It was also used as a tow vehicle. 在过去的几年里，它一直被放在54号车站后面，在那几年里，它恶化得很厉害.
In June 2010, 它被带到了云顶娱乐，乔·沃伊查克(Joe Woyjeck)将车辆拆卸到一个靠近框架的修复处. It actually was a fire engine, it had a pump and a water tank. But all of that had been removed either by Arco, or Shell, or the Museum back in the ’80s, we are still looking into who did that modification.
EARLY 1900'S HELMET
2009年10月，亨宁家族向云顶娱乐捐赠了一顶令人垂涎的福克头盔. It has Engine Co. 43 painted over Engine Co. 22. EARLY 1900’s
“这顶头盔是1957年1月初云顶娱乐搬进南艾尔蒙特的房子时在车库里发现的. Dad, Bernie Henninges, was a firefighter for the Los Angeles County Fire Department, hired in 1947 soon after being discharged from the Navy in World War II. He retired in 1975 as an Engineer. Dad had bought this house from another LA County Firefighter, Osmand Stevens, Captain Stevens at the time.”
The helmet seems to have quite a bit of history with a second coat of paint. The original shows that it came from Engine 22 prior to being painted. You can see 22’s number outlined behind 43’s. At the time, District 22 was discontinued because the area became a city. It was re-stenciled with Engine 43. The district was east of El Monte, at Five Points.
据信，史蒂文斯消防队员在退役时戴着这种头盔，在五点镇成为艾尔蒙特市的一部分之前. As children, my four brothers and I often played fireman using this helmet. After I became a firefighter for Central Pierce Fire and Rescue, in Pierce County, Washington, I asked Dad about the helmet. 他在棚子里翻找了一遍，把旧头盔拿出来给了我. For years, my children would play with this same helmet. 它在亨宁斯家族服役的时间比在消防队服役的时间还要长!
我和我的兄弟们想代表云顶娱乐的父亲把这顶头盔捐给洛杉矶消防云顶娱乐, Bernard Andrew Hennings, for his years of service in the Department.”
信中提到的第22区与20世纪20年代早期位于加迪纳市的洛杉矶第22县车站有关. It was called MonitaHelmet 43 Gardena Fire Protection District. 加迪纳市成立后，22号消防站成为了加迪纳市消防站. 数字22再次出现在洛杉矶东部的美景宫花园. 所以这个头盔要么在莫尼塔加迪纳消防区服役要么在东洛杉矶区服役.
It was more likely that it served in the East Los Angeles District, 因为莫尼塔加迪纳区在云顶娱乐区历史上很早就存在了, 也不认为福克头盔是在那个时期生产的. We are continuing to research this fact.
Station 22, in East Los Angeles, is still in service today, 是洛杉矶历史最悠久的县消防局之一.
Forker helmets are very rare, 它们是云顶娱乐一直在寻找的东西，以提高云顶娱乐的收藏. We are very happy and grateful to the Henning’s Family for thinking of us, 并将这段系里的历史回馈给云顶娱乐与大家分享.
The estate of Disney animator, Ward Kimball, donated his 1888 Silsby Steam Engine, 和他1916年的美国LeFrance消防车(机动泵-又名:迪斯尼乐园消防车). Both apparatus are extremely popular at the Museum. The Silsby is one of our most coveted apparatus in the collection. 多亏了沃德多年来无可挑剔的管理，它现在的状况非常好.
O. M. THURSTON COLLECTION
April 20, 2010 – Patrick Henry, family of Assistant County Fire Warden O.M. Thurston, donates Memorabilia
Patrick Henry, family of Fire Warden O.M. Thurston (his grandmother’s second husband!), 在他为南加州的荒野服务时，捐赠了属于“渴”的非常相关的纪念品. Here is a statement from a newspaper clipping on his retirement:
On December 1, 1951, O.M. 瑟斯顿从护林员和消防管理员部门的助理县消防管理员的职位上退休. “Thirsty entered service with the old Forestry Department on January 10,1921 when it was composed of a handful of men, a Model T Ford, and a motorcycle. He has seen it grow to its present strength of more than 1,000 men…
This collection, 里面有马里布的瞭望站和圣莫尼卡山脉的“新”森林巡逻站的照片, was found in an attic in Sequim, Washington, and was about to be discarded. 帕特里克又想到了云顶娱乐，决定看看云顶娱乐是否感兴趣. 想到云顶娱乐在这些收藏中发现的东西几乎失去了重要性，这是不可想象的! THANK YOU… for stopping and saving our history!
Patrick’s mother was also part of our Los Angeles County Fire Department. Her name was Dora Rorison, 她在文图拉县和卡拉巴萨斯之间的一个“消防站，她称之为总部”的地方做调度员.
A through digital display of this collection will be available soon, as well as a biography on Fire Warden Thurston. In the photo below, Fire Warden O.M. Thurston is squatting on the left.
KIRBY FAMILY - SEAGRAVE
Thanks to the Kirby family for their generosity and donation.
This 1930 Seagrave was donated to the museum by the Kirby family. It is scheduled for restoration in the near future. Plans call for installation of modern power (460 cubic inch Ford V-8), automatic transmission and improved brakes. After being made safe and roadworthy, 按照云顶娱乐协会的宗旨，这个Seagrave将用于游行和其他活动.
BRAGDON PHOTO/DOCUMENT ARCHIVE
Thank you Clyde A. Bragdon for your generous donation.
LA County Fire Chief Clyde A. Bragdon donated his document and photo collection to the Museum. In well kept binders, filed by date, 科长保留了他担任该部科长期间发生的事件和事件的新闻文章和照片. They provide a through story on the events of the day. Many of the photos and stories have been highlighted in our Fire Warden Issues.
