Fire Department Demonstration Films

The Historic Stillman Fires Collection is a rare and unique look at firemen training and public education films from over 50 years ago.

A majority of the footage is silent and in black and white, but a few of the films have sound and color. For your viewing pleasure the collection has been re-mastered.

The Stillman collection is the largest collection of fires and fire management in the world. The entire Stillman collection is a must have for any true fire lover.
