Firefighters Museum Exhibit Highlights I-35 Bridge Collapse Rescue Efforts
This Saturday, a new exhibit opens at the Firefighters Hall and Museum, and it’s moving, and also extremely well-deserved. 81 MINUTES: After the Bridge Collapsed displays the extraordinary efforts of responders from that first call to dispatch to the last person pulled from the bridge. Split into the five different locations where firefighters responded to the travesty—the south and north sides of the bridge, the Mississippi River, the 10th Avenue bridge, and the dispatch center—this exhibit recounts the events of the day at each site, where rescue teams were met with tragedy, but also support from the community. Along with this permanent exhibit, the museum is hosting Family Home Disaster Preparedness Day on July 21.
