This exhibit tells the history of the Jasper Park Volunteer Fire Brigade. In the early days of Jasper, Alberta, the town site depended on those who volunteered their time and lives in order to battle the flames. The growth of the volunteer brigade, which began with government employees, coincides with the growth of Jasper as a town and a community. The many fires that have occurred in Jasper's history are tragic, but they are fascinating stories that have been burned into our collective memory.
