Collection Donations:

Do you have items related to San Francisco’s Fire, Police or Sheriff and Emergency Medical Service Departments that you would like to donate to GOTC's museum collection? We would potentially be interested in the following items:

  • Badges, uniforms, patches
  • Batons and other equipment
  • Correspondence, certificates
  • Fire apparatus and appliances, helmets
  • Memorabilia, posters, programs photographs
  • Records of service
  • Tools, equipment, vehicles

If you are interested in donating to our museum, please contact our administrative office by letter or email. Describe the item, its condition, and as much of its history as you know. Digital photos would be very helpful. Our curator will be in touch with you.

Providing proper care for our entire collection is a priority, so our curator will thoroughly review potential donations to determine if our collection is the right place for your object. Thank you for considering GOTC as a potential home for you cherished artifacts.
