Cape Fear Firefighters

Sunday, October 1, 2023

Join us at the Museum on FREE SUNDAY to learn more about what it takes to be a firefighter in the Cape Fear region and how it has changed over the decades.

A panel of current and retired city and county firefighters will share stories of working in the fire service in our region. The panel includes:

  • Captain Cassandra Sidberry (retired)
  • WFD Firefighter Joshua Gibson
  • NHC Battalion Chief Jennifer Smith

Historian Dr. Jan Davidson will moderate the panel. A brief question and answer session will follow the 45-minute panel discussion.

After the conversation, visitors are invited to view the Museum’s in-house curated and created Fire! exhibition. It explores the history and science of fire and firefighting and will be on view through November 26, 2023.
