The San Francisco Arts Commission and the announce the installation of Windswept, a wind-driven kinetic façade by Charles Sowers. Consisting of over 500 freely rotating directional arrows, Windswept transforms a blank wall into a large-scale observational instrument that reveals the complex interactions between the wind and the environment. The artwork was funded by the Art Enrichment monies generated by the San Francisco Public Utilities Commission’s capital projects. Come visit Riding the Rails, the Museum's scale model of a caboose.

The additions include SFFD company actions, cisterns used, hydrants with water, known rescues, SF Call and LA Herald newspaper articles, Army, Insurance reports and several other reports. We've recently added new material to our In The Line Of Duty pages. Many news stories have been added in tribute to those who lost their lives. We've also added several Notable Fire Stories with in depth details about how these brave souls died.
