From the Ashes: Orillia’s Fires will showcase several historic and modern fires in Orillia. These events elicited a strong response from the community, united in a desire to assist in recovery and rebuilding efforts. Through artifacts and archival information from OMAH’s permanent collection and the Orillia Fire Department, the history of the department and historic fire practices will be explored. Interviews with firefighters of the past and present will provide a first-hand account of the on-call life of an Orillia firefighter.
