Lowell Walks: Fires & Fire Fighting this Saturday

Please join us this Saturday, July 22, 2017, for a Lowell Walk on Lowell Fires and the Lowell Fire Department. The tour begins at 10 am from Lowell National Park Visitor Center, is free, and lasts about 90 minutes.

The tour will be led by Jason Strunk, a captain of the Lowell Fire Department. Jason is the author of Lowell Firefighting (Arcadia 2006) and the co-author with Harold Waterhouse of A25: Stories from Lowell’s First Arson Squad.

Saturday’s tour will cover some of the devastating fires that have occurred in the Acre neighborhood as well as how the strategy and tactics of Lowell fire fighters have evolved over time.
