Education and Community Service

The Mini Muster Fire Safety Program: In cooperation with the Riverside County Fire Department (Station #33), Desert Sands Unified School District, and the cities of Palm Desert and Indian Wells, the Historical Society assists in providing fire safety training to hundreds of local third grade elementary school children in October of every year. In addition to learning the safe way to escape a fire, team activities include hands on water bucket races, aiming a fire hose at a target, and participate in races while wearing firefighter boots and helmets. The Historical Society has proudly sponsored the Mini Muster since 1993 and over 8,000 students have experienced this valuable training. Information sheet.

School Tours: The Historical Society pays for transportation to our Museum during the school year for K-2 grade students to learn some of the history of Palm Desert and to view our exhibits.

Speakers: The Society has speakers who will present programs on the history and early years of Palm Desert and the Coachella Valley to groups and organizations.
