The National Historical Fire Foundation (Hall of Flame) is a museum dedicated to the historical preservation of fire fighting equipment used through the years around the world.
The museum's artifacts were originally the private collection of George F. Getz Jr., who opened the original Hall of Flame in Wisconsin in 1961. Getz moved the museum to Phoenix in 1974.
The museum has five exhibit bays and the National Firefighting Hall of Heroes gallery. The equipment is grouped as: Hand & Horse Drawn (1725–1908); Motorized Apparatus (1897–1948); Motorized Apparatus (1918–1968); Motorized Apparatus (1919–1950) and Wildland Firefighting. It also has a large collection of Fire Department arm patches.
