Former Tainan He Tong Building(Tainan City Fire Museum)(原台南合同廳舍)(消防史料館)

Traveler rating:3.5 7 Reviews

Monday:Break time





Passing through Tang Te-chang Memorial Park(湯德章紀念公園), it’s hard to miss this special building with its high tower. It is the He Tong Building (Meaning joint office building) (合同廳舍) built in the Japanese Colonial Period; the Fire-View Tower(火見樓) completed in the 1930s was the tallest structure in downtown Tainan at the time and was extremely important as most of the other buildings were made of wood. It was used to look out for fires in downtown Tainan. The fire station has the oldest fireman’s pole in all Taiwan. Coming down the pole from the third floor, with hands and legs holding onto the pole, it takes a firefighter just three seconds to reach the first floor. It is regarded as the station’s “treasure.”
Situated in the right section of the building was the space once designated for police officers, women police division and the juvenile affairs division. Later, the Fire Department   transformed the area into a fire museum that feature contents including the history of fire brigade, articles and images relating to fire safety, overview of the fire brigade’s rescue duties, the heroic firefighters, the “tremblor” and interactive experience with a VR earthquake search and rescue mission and so forth.

    This is an old building built by the Japanese during their rule. It is under renovation, so the front facade was being covered up. It is located to a very busy roundabout.

    지금은 소방박물관으로 쓰이는 곳

    국립대만문학박물관 옆에 있는 옛 타이난 합동청사. 과거부터 높은 탑은 있었다곤 하나 뭔가 너무 소방서에 어울리는 느낌의 건물. 그냥 지나가다가 쓱 보고 가시면 될 듯합니다.

    湯徳章紀念公園の前にあります。消防署の建物を見ても違和感を感じないのは自分の幼い頃にあった消防署の建物と似ているからだと思います。台湾で古い日本を感じ感傷に浸れる世代も我々辺りまでなのでしょうね。 古い建物でも再生して使い続ける台湾の人々て、偉い。
