Join us for this year’s First Responders Showcase as we honor those that serve as emergency personnel.

First Responders Showcase is an all-day event to educate and learn about the work that emergency personnel do. Take the 11:30 AM or 1:30 PM train ride to tracks along the Museum’s restoration shop for a demonstration of a controlled collision between a train and an automobile and the extrication process used to help save lives when such incidents occur.
