Can & Bottle Drive happening March through October!
Due to the current lockdown in the Waterloo Township and province of Ontario, our Museum is currently closed until restrictions are lifted.
We were honoured to be invited to participate in this opportunity with the City of Waterloo Museum, the Waterloo Fire Rescue and the Fire Hall Museum and Education Centre (in Galt).
The webinar / field trip was a HUGE success! We presented for 328 teachers so it reached around 6,225 Kindergarten to Grade 2 students in the Waterloo Region District School Board.

COVID-19 has placed health care and personal support workers in extremely demanding and dangerous work. On this day in 2020, EMS, Police, Wilmot Fire Department, and the Wilmot Heritage Fire Brigades drove vehicles past Nithview Long Term Care and Seniors Residences in New Hamburg.
The tribute was a salute to the workers and their invaluable service.

On this day, members of the Wilmot Heritage Fire Brigades unveiled the newly restored 1940 Fargo/ Bickle pumper at Castle Killbride, in Baden.
The Baden Fire Department purchased the truck in 1940 for $990.00, and the pump, hose bed, et cetera were added by Bickle Fire engines for $2755.00. The truck was in service from 1940-1975, first as a first-line pumper, then as a backup pumper; in 1966, the truck was radically modified to be used in changing street light bulbs in Baden.
The restoration -- a four year project -- took over 1300 hours, all completed by volunteers. The truck can be viewed at the WHFB museum. Read an article about the restoration below
