FIRE DEPARTMENT 



FOR THE YEAR 1929. 



Boston, April 30, 1930. 

Hon. James M. Curley, 

Mayor of the City of Boston. 

Dear Sir, — I have the honor to submit herewith 
the report of the activities of the Boston Fire Depart- 
ment for the year ending December 31, 1929, as required 
by section 24, chapter 4, of the Revised Ordinances of 
1925. 

Hon. Eugene C. Hultman resigned as Fire Com- 
missioner on January 29, 1930, when he was appointed 
Building Commissioner. From that date until March 4, 
1930, he served as Acting Fire Commissioner. Edward 
F. McLaughlin became Fire Commissioner on the 
latter date. 

Fire Loss. 

The total fire loss of 1929 in the City of Boston, as 
estimated by the insurance companies, amounted to 
$4,129,926. During the year there were: 8,452 alarms 
of fire; 4,473 were box alarms, and 3,979 were still and 
automatic alarms; 806 false alarms were received during 
the year, and thirty-six arrests were made for sounding 
false alarms.

Fire Department. 3 

Total number of inspections made by Fire Prevention 
Division, district and company officers (including 
initial and reinspection of all types of buildings), 375,451 

Seventeen thousand five hundred twenty-four dollars 
and fifty cents was collected in fees for permits issued 
by the Fire Prevention Division, a decrease of $5,878.50 
from the previous year. This decrease was due prin- 
cipally to the exemption of one, two and three car garages 
from the requirement to file renewal certificates annually. 

Buildings. 

On December 20 the newly erected quarters for 
Engine Company 29 and Ladder Company 11, on 
Chestnut Hill avenue, Brighton, were accepted, and 
these companies took possession. 

The building is of brick, three stories in height, 
with a drill tower and drill yard. The new station is 
equipped with all modern appliances, and takes the place 
of an old station a few hundred feet away. The total 
cost of the building above the land was $149,489.02. 

The new building in Bowdoin square is nearing com- 
pletion and should be ready for occupancy early this 
year. 

Fire Apparatus. 
Twenty-nine (29) motor vehicles were purchased, 
tested and placed in service, viz.:

3 American LaFrance aerial ladder trucks. 
3 Graham-Paige sedans. 

7 Buick sedans. 

6 Ford roadsters with pick-up bodies. 
1 Ford coupe.

2 Ladder trucks. 

Forty-six self-starting units, generators and batteries 
were purchased for installation during the year. Air

New Appliances. 

Miners' Wheat lights were furnished and installed at 
the following companies during the year together with 
charging boards: 

Engines 28, 30, 34, 42, 45, 51, 53; Ladders 10, 16, 
23, 25, 30; Rescues 2 and 3; Districts 12 and 13 cars. 

All service gas masks were added to the equipment

* Owing to the construction of the Venturi meters, they do not record flows under 600 
gallons per minute. 

Marine Service. 

The three fireboats were taken out of service at 
different times during the year for inspection by the 
United States Steamboat Inspection Service. All repairs 
ordered by the inspectors were made and the boats 
returned to service 

The berth at Engine 31 was dredged, and necessary 
repairs were made to the wharves of Engines 44 and 47. 

The outboard motors and high pressure pumps which 
were purchased and installed during the past three 
years have given invaluable service in reaching fires 
under wharves and bridges which were heretofore 
practically inaccessible. 

Drill School. 

During the year eighty-two (82) appointees success- 
fully passed the intensive course of instruction in the 
Department Drill School, together with ten (10) officers 
and members from other departments. 

Pump School. 

During the year fifty-eight (58) members from this 
department and two members from outside departments 
attended the course of instruction at the gasolene 
pumping engine school and qualified as motor pump 
operators. 

Chauffeurs' School. 

Seventy-nine (79) members of the department received 
instruction in the chauffeurs' school during the year 
and were certified as operators of department motor 
vehicles. In addition, special instructions were given

New Running Card. 

After months of investigation, study, etc., by the 
special committee appointed for that purpose, a new 
running card was placed in service on April 15, 1929,. 
and has on several occasions proven its value by pro- 
viding adequate apparatus and man power under 
different conditions not heretofore provided for by 
previous running cards. 

Rescue Company 3. 

On May 31, 1929, a new company known as Rescue 
Company 3 was organized and temporarily located in

Alarm Service. 

The fire alarm system has functioned in a satisfactory 
manner during the past year, no serious trouble having 
occurred. Outside construction is in excellent condition 
and ''open" circuits have been few. A large percentage 
of the "opens" was due to broken box posts, sixty-four of 
which were damaged by vehicles. 

On February 15, 1929, a general order was issued that 
upon receipt of an alarm by telephone for a fire in a 
hospital or a home for aged people a still alarm assign- 
ment of apparatus should be dispatched, immediately 
after which the number of the fire alarm box nearest to 
the location of the fire was to be sounded. Also, similar 
action was to be taken for all still, automatic and A. D. T. 
alarms between the hours of 11 p. m. and 7 a. m. 

This, I believe, is a step in the right direction, because 
there are so many telephones now in service many 
alarms are transmitted by telephone that should have 
the full box assignments. In other words it was felt 
that any fire occurring during sleeping hours might 



Fire Department. 11 

gain more headway and be of a more serious nature than 
when people were up and about, and if discovered by 
persons inside buildings they would resort to the tele- 
phone rather than run to the nearest box. Although 
in many cases needless movements of apparatus have 
been caused by this arrangement, in some instances 
lives have undoubtedly been saved and large losses have 
been prevented. 

In 1928 the bells were removed from all keyless doors 
and as a result the percentage of false alarms was in- 
creased considerably. In order to reduce this percent- 
age and still give a warning signal indicating an alarm 
being sounded, a new method was devised which it is 
anticipated will accomplish the desired results. When 
the operating lever in the fire alarm box is pulled down 
to start the box movement, a relay is automatically 
energized thereby ringing a bell and flashing a light over 
the box. One hundred boxes are now being fitted with 
this feature. 

Of 4,429 alarms received from boxes and transmitted 
to the department, 801 were false, about 18 per cent. 
This percentage was considerably reduced during the 
latter part of the year because of the activities of the 
Police Department. In 1928 about 23 per cent of the 
alarms were false. 

Radio service between fire alarm headquarters and 
the fireboats has been excellent. Interference, which 
formerly caused more or less difficulty at headquarters, 
has been eliminated by the use of a receiver placed in 
the quarters of Engine 44 at Northern Avenue Bridge 
and connected to the set at headquarters. 

Construction Work. 

About 32,000 feet of cable were hauled into under- 
ground ducts for extension of system and about 6,000 
feet were used for replacements. Thirty-three box posts 
and one cable post were installed; seven box posts were 
relocated and of sixty-four that were broken by vehicles 
twelve were replaced by new. Approximately 8 miles 
of line wire and 8,475 feet of cable were used in new line 
construction for extension of service; about 12.5 miles 
of line wire and 9,576 feet of aerial cable were used for 
replacements, and about 8.5 miles of line wire and 7,000 
feet of cable were removed from poles. Of forty-four fire 
alarm boxes installed, thirty-one are owned by this 
department, two by the Schoolhouse Department and
