The Schmidt Boca Raton History Museum Touts Upcoming Family Day & Current Exhibition
First Responders Family Day
Saturday, January 15, 10 am to 2 pm
To celebrate its current exhibit First Responders, the museum will host a number of special al fresco activities in the parking lot so that visitors can check out the Boca Raton Motor Unit and the Boca Raton Fire Rescue's fire truck, plus a meet-and-greet with the Fire Inspector. While these events are outside, museum entry that day will be free, although masks are required inside the building.
The museum's exhibit commemorates Boca Raton's first responders. From the early days of moonshine to the 21st Century anthrax attacks, First Responders walks visitors through the history of the local Fire Department, Police Department, EMS, and Dispatchers, revealing how each department has grown and shrunk in relation to the surrounding community. The exhibit celebrates a century of local heroes from Town Marshall Charlie Raulerson in 1926; to Betty Taylor, the first woman to work for the Boca Raton Police Department and its first dispatcher back in the 1950s; to those brave officers who confronted the vicious anthrax attack in 2001. This exhibit is sponsored in part by the State of Florida, Florida Department of State, Division of Cultural Affairs and the Florida Council on Arts and Culture.
