"Hispanic Firefighters of the Denver Fire Department" presents the stories of fourteen Denver firefighters, beginning in 1955. Their experiences illuminate the many different individuals and stories that make up the DFD’s Hispanic history.
This exhibit presents the history of individuals who braved not only the rigors of the fire service, but of systematic and personal resistance. "Hispanic Firefighters of the Denver Fire Department" will be on display from September 15 to October 15, during Hispanic Heritage Month. In addition to panels featuring individual firefighters, the exhibit also presents information on the legal challenges, historic photographs and objects from the collections of individual firefighters.
