Robert Dunne joined the Madison Fire Department as a volunteer in 1994 and was hired full time as a career professional in 2008. In 2015 he began intensive research into the history of the department scanning and cataloging over 15,000 photos and slides. His research also includes a membership database of over 350 people, an obituary collection of over 350 along with grave photos, 5 binders of newspaper articles, 20 digitized vintage film files. He is currently working on a book that will contain member profiles and photos since 1881, fire fighting apparatus, Chiefs, firehouses, fires, anniversaries and a general history of the fire department.
