Meet the Author


Through the efforts of many people and organizations, this history has continued to survive with historic images, written histories, and the preservation of historic firefighting pieces. Bert Johanson, president of the Connecticut Fire Museum, directed this project and is passionate about preserving this information for future generations. Thomas E. Holcombe and Nancy Johanson, members of the Connecticut Fire Museum, also played a major role. Images were primarily culled from the museum and the East Hartford Fire Department.
