The Reading Area Firefighters Museum Board of Directors is pleased to announce that they have appointed R. John Trimble Jr. to serve as the Museums new Curator. John will be filling the shoes of past curator Earl Bansner. Earl has served the museum as curator for the past 13 years and has been an important key figure in the museums history. Earl will still be involved and will be overseeing the growing apparatus collection at the museum. We would like to thank Earl for his continued dedication and support of the Fire Museum.
John has been an active volunteer with the museum for the past four years and brings his knowledge and devotion to protect, preserve and promote the rich firefighting history here in Berks County and are looking forward to what he has in store for our exhibits as we embark on several preservation and rehabilitation projects of the Liberty Fire station building in the upcoming months.
