May 2023

Becoming Fearless exhibit closes

May 14, 2023
Oklahoma History Center, 800 Nazih Zuhdi Drive Oklahoma City, OK 73105

The photography exhibit, Becoming Fearless will be open in the Chesapeake Event Center and Gallery at the Oklahoma History Center through Sunday, May 14, 2023.

Becoming Fearless explores 70 years of firefighting in Oklahoma. 25 black and white images trace the evolution of the profession from the early days of acrobatics, antics, and volunteerism in the 1900s, to the sophisticated fire safety systems in place today. Photographs from the early days of firefighting often depicted feats of agility—along with a bit of humor. Some of the images are great examples of the firehouses, equipment, and uniforms from across the state. Guthrie established their fire department in 1889, the same year as Oklahoma City. Tulsa followed in 1900, Enid in 1902, and Edmond in 1903. Most started with volunteers only, as is still the case in some rural areas today. Horse-drawn fire equipment was common from 1889, when the Oklahoma City Fire Department (OCFD) was originally established, until 1910 when the first motorized firefighting vehicle was introduced.
