Chief Engineer's Office, 

City Hall, January 2, 1872. 

To His Honor the Mayor, and City Council : 

Gentlemen: — I have the honor to present the Thirty-fourth 
Annual Report of the Boston Fire Department, being the twelfth 
since the introduction of Steam Engines. 

I submit for your consideration a detailed statement of its- 
workings, with statistics which, I trust, will be of interest to every 
member of the government. 

Our city, in common with other large cities in this Union, has- 
been visited with an unusually large number of fires the past year, 
and many of them threatened to be quite serious-; but by the 
prompt action and energy of the members of our department the 
city has been saved from any serious conflagrations. The number 
of fires the past year was five hundred and forty-nine. Loss- 
$704,329.06. In 1870 there were four hundred and ninety-seven 
fires, with a loss of $855,571, — which result is indeed gratifying. 



There are two thousand three hundred and seventy-five hydrants,, 
and ninety-six reservoirs, where water can be obtained in case of 
fire, which are charged to the appropriation for Fire Department 
by the Water Board, at the rate of $18.00 apiece, making a total 
of $44,478 for the use of water for the extinguishment of fires. 
There is also charged to this department, by the Water Works, 
for* furnishing and keeping in repair of the two thousand three 
hundred and seventy-five hydrants and ninety-six reservoirs, the 
sum of $29,652, making a total of $74,130. 



City Document. — No. 35. 
THE ORGANIZATION AND ITS MEMBERS. 



The organization of the department, as will be seen by referring 
to the ordinance, is as follows : — 

Each engine company in City Proper, East and South Boston, and 
Dorchester District, has an engineman, fireman and driver (who 
are permanently employed), and eight hosemen, who do duty only 
at fires ; one of the last number is designated as foreman of the 
hose, — Engine Companies Nos. 12, 13 and 14, located in the 
" Roxbury District." Those companies are composed of an en- 
gineman, fireman, and two drivers, — one to drive the engine and 
the other the hose carriage, — who are permanently employed ; and 
eight hosemen who do duty only at fires. The hose carriages in 
this district are drawn to fires separate from the engines, instead 
of being attached as in the other portions of the city. 

Each hose company has a driver (who is permanently em- 
ployed) and eight hosemen, who do dut}^ only at fires, and one of 
this number is designated as foreman of the hose. 

Hook and Ladder Company No. 1 has a driver, foreman, assist- 
ant foreman, four axemen, four rakemen, and thirteen members. 

No. 2 has a driver, foreman, assistant foreman, four axemen, 
four rakemen, and nine members. 

No. 3 consists of a driver, foreman, assistant foreman, four axe- 
men, four rakemen, and thirteen members. 

No. 4 consists of a driver, foreman, assistant foreman, four axe- 
men, four rakemen, and nine members. 

No. 5 has a driver, foreman, assistant foreman, four axemen, 
four rakemen, and nine members. 

No. 6 has a driver, foreman, assistant foreman, and six mem- 
bers. 

.No. 7 has a driver, foreman, assistant foreman, and six members. 

There has been added to this department the past 3*ear, one fire- 
extinguisher wagon, equipped with ten fire extinguishers, three 
hundred feet of one and one-half inch hose, with axes, rakes, lan- 
terns, etc. This has proved a valuable auxiliary to this depart- 
ment, so much so that an additional wagon will be located, early 
in the spring, near Dover street. 



Fike Department. 5 

The department, a" now organized, has one chief, fourteen 
assistant engineers, and a secretary, who are elected annually by 
concurrent vote of the City Council in the month of February or 
March.; four hundred and fifty members, who are recommended- by 
the Board of Engineers, appointed by His Honor the Mayor, con- 
firmed by the Board of Aldermen, and hold their position as fire- 
men during good behavior. They are divided into thirty-eight 
companies, as follows : Twenty-one steam engine companies, ten 
horse hose companies, and seven hook and ladder companies. 

The Board of Engineers are assigned for duty by the chief in 
the several fire districts. The following table will show the

There has been condemned, during the past year, 6,250 feet of

HOUSES. 

The number of Engine, Hose, and Hook and Ladder houses in 
this department are thirty-three, and, with the exception of the 
houses occupied by Hose Companies Nos. 2 and 5, are an orna- 
ment to the city. 

I would recommend that new houses be erected for Hose Com 
panies Nos. 2 and 5, the present municipal year, as the ones now 
occupied by them are unfit and inadequate to the wants of the 
companies. 



There have been purchased for this department seven horses, for 
the following companies, namely, two for Engine Company No. 
6, two for Engine Company No. 7, two for Engine Company No, 
13, and one for Hose Company No. 6.

APPARATUS. 



At the close of this municipal year, the apparatus connected 
with this department is in excellent condition. 



FIRE APPARATUS AT STATIONARY POINTS. 

HOSE CARRIAGES AND HOSE. 

There is apparatus located at the following points, for the more 
immediate protection of the neighborhood, and without organized 
companies : — 

One hose carriage, with two hundred and fifty feet of 2-inch 
leather hose, at the City Hospital, on Harrison avenue, and under 
the care of the driver of Hose Company No. 4. 

One hose carriage at the Hook and Ladder house on Harrison 
avenue, with one thousand feet of hose. 

Two hundred feet of cotton hose at City Stable, South End. 

One hose carriage, with four hundred feet of 2£-inch hose, at 
Hook and Ladder house No. 4 Eustis street, Highlands. 

At each of the above places are the needful wrenches, goose- 
necks, and pipes to be used with the hose. 

One hose carriage, with 1,000 feet of 2£-inch hose, at Hose 1 
house, Salem street, to be used in cases of large fires. 

SPARE APPARATUS. 

Deer Island. One hand engine, with 800 feet of cotton hose, 
belonging to the Fire Department, and stored here to be used by 
convicts within the prison, if required. 

Steam fire engines formerly known as Nos. 3, 4, 5, 7 and 10 are 
kept as spare engines. No. 10 has been thoroughly rebuilt, and 
is at present as good as a new engine. 

One hook and ladder carriage, formerly known as No. 1, kept 
as spare carriage. 

One hand engine at Hook and Ladder No. 8 house, TVareharn

Fire Department. 11 

FIRE LADDERS. 

There are fire ladders kept in the following locations, to be used 
only in cases of fire in the immediate vicinity, before other appa- 
ratus can be brought to bear. 

Engine house on Fourth, near K street, 4 ladders. 

Station house on Broadway, South Boston, 4 ladders. 

Engine house on Chelsea street, East Boston, 4 ladders. 

COAL HOUSES. 

No. 1 is located on Salem street. This house is in good repair, 
and supplies for the north and west sections of the city are taken 
from it in case of a large fire. 

No. 2 is located on Orleans street, East Boston. This is a new 
house, and, in case of fire, supplies are taken for the East Boston 
department. 

There is no house for Wagon No. 3 at present, the one formerly 
occupied by it having been taken clown for the purpose of building 
house for Engine No. 7. I recommend that a building be built in 
the immediate vicinity for its use. 

No. 4 is located at Engine house No. 14, Roxbury District. 

No. 5 is located at Hook and Ladder house No. 5, Fourth street, 
near Dorchester street, South Boston. 

Other apparatus connected with this department, unless spe- 
cially located, will be classed under the head of apparatus in 
charge of the several companies. 

ANNUAL PARADE. 

The two hundred and forty-first anniversary of the settlement of 
Boston was celebrated by the annual parade and inspection of the 
Boston Fire Department, under the direction of the Joint Standing 
Committee on Fire Department, which was a credit to the Depart- 
ment, and satisfactory to the City Government and citizens.

RULES FOE THE DISTRIBUTION 

OF 

THE" FIRE APPARATUS. 



Engineer's Office, Fire Department, 
Boston, January 1, 1872. 

To the Officers and Members of the Fire Department : — 

Gentlemen, — The new method of striking the Fire Alarm 
renders it necessary that the rules for the distribution of the 
apparatus should be explained, that it may be distinctly under- 
stood. 

The accompanying document is furnished, definitely stating the 
numbers of each box, and their location, and with explanations 
for your guidance and instruction. 

JOHN S. DAMRELL, 
Chief Engineer Boston Fire Department. 






Fire Department,, 61 



CITY OF BOSTON. 



FIRE- AL ABM TELEGRAPH. 

Alarms are sounded by striking the number of the box upon 
the Alarm Bells, and upon the Gongs in the Engine Houses. 

Examples : To announce the existence of a fire near Box No. 
41 (Old South Church), the bells will strike four, make a pause of 
a few seconds, then strike one, thus : 4 — 1. This will be repeated 
at intervals of about one minute. 

For a fire near Box No. 145 (South Boston Point), the bells will 
strike one, make a pause, then strike four, another pause, then 
strike five, thus : 1 — 4 — 5. 

Second Alarms are sounded by striking ten blows. Third 
Alarms are sounded by striking twelve blows twice, thus : 12 — 
12. 

In cases where the entire department are required, alarms are 
sounded by striking twelve blows three times, thus: 12 — 12 — 
12. 

In cases where Hook and Ladder Companies only are wanted, 
signal to be given by striking ten blows once, with the number 
of the Company struck twice, thus : Hook and Ladder No. one 10 — 
1 — 1 . Hook and Ladder No. four, 10 — 4 — 4. Hook and Ladder 
No. seven, 10 — 7 — 7. 

If more than one Hook and Ladder Company is wanted, the signal 
will be given thus : Hook and Ladder one and three, 10 — 1 — 1 — 
3 — 3. Hook and Ladder two and four, 10 — 2 — 2 — 4 — 4. 
Hook and Ladder five and seven, 10 — 5 — 5 — 7— 7. 

No person will give alarms for the same fire (after the first 
alarm has been given), without an order from an Engineer, and 
the person so ordered will be sure to go to the same box from which 
the first alarm was given, and report the same to the Chief Engi- 
neer.

DIRECTIONS TO THOSE HOLDING SIGNAL KEYS. 

If a fire is discovered, go to the nearest Box to the fire. Pull 
the slide all the way down once, and let go. If possible, wait at 
the Box, so as to direct the Firemen to the fire. If jrou hear no 
reply on the Bells, pull again. If no reply after the third trial, go 
to the nearest Box. The Police, upon hearing the Bells, will 
spring their rattles and call the number of the Box. 



1. Be sure there is a fire before sounding the alarm. 

2. Never sound the alarm for a fire seen at a distance. 

3. Never open the Box or touch the apparatus, except in case 
of fire. 

4. Be sure your Box is locked before leaving it. 

5. Never let the key go out of your possession, unless called 
for by the Superintendent. 



Fire Department. 67 

6. If you remove from your house or place of business, return 
the key to the Fire Alarm Office. Don't leave it with the new ten- 
ant.
