Firefighting objects from FX’s “Rescue Me” going to Smithsonian

The donations to the Smithsonian’s popular culture collections just keep coming.

This Thursday Denis Leary and Lenny Clarke, two of the cast of “Rescue Me,” the firefighters’ series on FX, are donating some of their gear to the National Museum of American History.

Dwight Blocker Bowers, the curator of the museum’s entertainment collections, will accept a firefighter costume and some tools from the show’s cast and its executive producer Peter Tolan.

The show, by the way, returns for its final season Wednesday night.
