This exhibit would not have been possible without the generous support of many individuals and organizations. The Firefighters’ Museum of Calgary would like to thank the following contributors for their assistance and advice throughout the curatorial process:

The Calgary Fire Department Honour Guard

The Calgary Fire Department

IAFF Local 255

The Calgary Fire Department Pensioners Society

Finally, and most importantly, it would have been impossible to construct this exhibit without the amazing support given by all of those members of the Guard who gave their time to this endeavour. For that, we are truly grateful:

Chief Steve Dongworth, Brian Freney, Dennis McIvor, Rick Choppe, Blaine Gray, Brett Romanow, Terry Larson, Derek Rogers, Grant Rinas, Jennifer Hall, Chris McCallum, Tobias Breuer, Steven Leschert, Shawn Butler, and Steve Whynot.
