Video Kiosks
The video kiosks at the FASNY Museum of Firefighting explore the questions every kid (and many adults too!) have concerning firefighting.

The Museum currently has two video kiosks that answer kids’ questions about firefighting and firefighters. These kiosks are the culmination of a project begun by the Museum’s After School Program, in conjunction with the Hudson City School District. The students in the program brainstormed questions they wanted to ask firefighters. These questions were based not only on their questions, but those questions they thought all children might ask a firefighter, if given the chance.

The firefighters interviewed included James A. Burns-Past NY State Fire Administrator and Past Chief, Verplanck, NY, David A. Quinn-Commissioner of Fire, Stuyvesant, NY and Past Chief, South Schodack, NY, and Neal VanDeusen-Past Commissioner of Fire and Past Assistant Chief, Hudson, NY. All of these firefighters are also Board Members of the FASNY Museum of Firefighting.

These kiosks were envisioned to meet several Museum needs. First, these kiosks are modern purveyors of oral history, preserving the real-life experiences of firefighters so that visitors can understand what it was/is like to fight fires from the perspective of these firefighters’ contemporary experiences. Secondly, they answer many of the questions youngsters visiting the Museum have about the firefighters and firefighting. Lastly, they serve to convey the importance of public service to visitors and will hopefully inspire some to consider becoming volunteer firefighters.
