The museum is also dedicated to giving back its local community. A couple of programs that are particularly special to the museum are Fire Camp and Coats for Kids. And the newest program that has recently been initiated is the Fire Prevention poster contest.  Fire Camp is FREE annual one-day event for 130 youth, 6th-9th grade, to learn about firefighting. It is an opportunity for them to participate in many hands-on activity stations such as hose pulling, bucket brigade, search & rescue, and bunker gear race, just to name a few. This helps give kids a real “firefighter’s experience”. Each station is led by real firefighters from Kansas! You can learn even more about this event at Coats for Kids is cooperative effort between the Kansas Firefighters Museum, Kansas Firefighters Alliance Inc., Wichita and Sedgwick County Fire Departments, Fire House Subs (of Wichita), Riverwalk Church of Christ, and 104.5 The Fox to bring new winter items (coats,
gloves, scarves, & hats) for children in need. Once these kids are identified through various organizations throughout the area, they are invited along with their parents to a special day to receive their winter wear. For those unable to bring their kids, we have firefighters deliver the coats. You can learn more about this and how you can help at  Fire Prevention Poster Contest is the museums latest endeavor
