Biloxi Fire Chief Joe Boney spoke to a group of citizens at Community Design Studio this morning about the past, present, and future of the Biloxi Fire Department.

Chief Boney told News 25 the Biloxi Fire Department has a rich and deep history. Most of the history of the department can be found in the Biloxi Fire Museum which is located in a former firehouse originally built in 1937.
