Prince Rupert Fire and Police Museum celebrates renovation of Bell Tower

One of Prince Rupert's more intriguing of tourist attractions is showing off it's latest renovation project, with the Prince Rupert Fire and Police Museum directing our attention up, with a look towards the newly rebuilt Bell Tower atop the museum building.

The museum located adjacent to the Prince Rupert Fire Station is a popular spot for tourists and locals to pop into, a quick opportunity to retrace some of Prince Rupert's historical review with a focus on fire apparatus and police exhibits.

The new focal point for the building was fabricated by Prince Rupert's Marinex Sheet Metal and unveiled for the public in May.

The tower renovation project was completed thanks to the assistance of a number of local residents and organizations including; Prince Rupert Grain, Rupert Square Mall, Mr. Dave Walker, Northern Savings Credit Union, Rupert Square Tenants Association and the Prince Rupert Regional Community Foundation.

Their assistance was recently acknowledged with a plaque that can be found at the Museum site on 1st Avenue West.

Last year Prince Rupert Crimestoppers and the Museum outlined the nature of restoration work on the 1947 Mercury Police Car once used by the BC provincial Police.
