Ft. Lauderdale Fire Station Ghost Hunting Event

FT. LAUDERDALE FIRE STATION & SAFETY MUSEUM
Saturday, May 18th 2013 - 8:00 pm until Midnight
Special Offer - $35 P/P for Meetup Members ($45 P/P for General Public) Advance ticket purchase required on our website.

Fort Lauderdale Fire Station (also known as Historic Fire Station #3) is located at 1022 West Las Olas Boulevard, at the corner of S. W. 11th Avenue, in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.

Historic Fire Station #3 is said to be haunted by several entities including the spirit of young fireman, Robert Leeland Knight, who died two days after Christmas in 1940 during his second week of working for the Ft. Lauderdale Fire Station. He was killed in the line of duty when he was tragically electrocuted while stepping off the fire truck and landing in a puddle of electrically charged water. The claim is that fallen firefighter, Robert Knight, makes his presence known in many ways ranging from cold breezes on the back of the neck to the sounds of a disembodied voice. Some people claim the intercom system in the Ft. Lauderdale Fire Station has turned on by itself and voices can be heard coming through the speakers, while others claim to have experienced phenomena such as door movements and seeing ghostly apparitions.

It is also said that spirits from the hanging tree located just across the street where vigilantes would hold their lynchings have made an appearance, as well as, an occasional Native American spirit from the Seminole Indian burial ground located only a short distance away from the Ft. Lauderdale Fire Station. But perhaps the saddest of all are the spirits of two small girls who passed away after a tragic fire broke out in their home located just down the street from the station.

    Has anyone ever used the ghost box ovilus or the ovilus III before and gotten any good results? We were in the last room with someone who was using it and so would love to hear more about it. If anyone has more info please let me know. It was a wonderful event.

    We have had some people touched during an investigation, many have felt the cold breezes on the back of their neck. I personally have heard the intercom system turn on by itself. We have also captured many EVP's on the voice recorders. We have experienced communication through the use of the EMF meters, Maglights, and the Ovilus. I will be bringing the newest Ovilus with me that evening which is the Ovilus III. For those of you who are not sure what an ovilus is, it is a basically a Voice Box for spirits. It has a built in EMF meter and combines EMF readings with different environmental readings and assigns each different set of readings a number. Then there is a specific word which correlates with that number and the box will spit out that specific word. There are approximately 2,054 words programmed into the Ovilus III. Many true scientific paranormal investigators doubt the validity of the Ovilus, but is sure makes for a fun ghost hunt!
