Pioneer Mutual Hook and Ladder Society (PMHLS) is a tax exempt historical society dedicated to all firefighters. PMHLS was founded on April 24, 1990 to establish a fire museum in Sacramento, California. As reflected by its name, the society honors the first organized Sacramento Fire Company, Mutual Hook & Ladder Company #1, formed on February 5, 1850.

Fire safety education is a major part of our mission. In addition to preserving sharing the history of firefighters in the Sacramento region, we partner with fire safety organizations to put on fire safety programs for youth.

Education is at the core of what we do, we appreciate any donations that help us grow our education programs.
