“The Combat Challenge Team”
Stamina. Strength. Power. Speed. Aired on Palm Beach County channel 20, this video profiles Local 2928’s combat challenge team. The state’s defending champion “combat athletes” show how they train and stay in shape – and why.
Archived photos and voice-over narration tell the story of the Middletown Fire Department and Local 336, from their beginnings in 1848 as a 130-man volunteer fire department.

“Heroes of Today, Heroes of Yesterday”
The 111-year history of the Chapel Hill Fire Department comes to life in this multimedia museum exhibit, which opened August 23, 2007, at the Chapel Hill Museum and remains as a permanent exhibit. Local 2580 supported the exhibit and film, which benefited largely from the collecting and archiving efforts of member Christopher Bradley.

“Response Times Do Make a Difference”
This flyer describes the dangers of closing fire stations due to budget costs. It compares two residential fires to show the time that can be lost waiting for a secondary responding unit.
