ONE LR031116 fire museum 2
FORMER FLAMES: Lebanon Fire Department Chief Charles Batts holds up the turncoat of retired Fire Chief Jim Stevenson. The coat was Stevenson's first, issued to him when he joined the department in 1969. Coats from the era were made of rubber and came down to a firefighter's knees. Stevenson donated the coat back to the department to be included in the collection of a small museum at Station 11, 975 Lasley Dr., Lebanon.
