CITY OF CHARLESTOWN. 



February 29, I860. 

To the Honorable Board of Mayor and Aldermen and Common 
Council : 

Gentlemen : — 

In compliance with. Section 4tli of the Ordinance regulat- 
ing the Fire Department, passed Dec. 27, 1859, I herewith pre- 
sent to your Honorable Board, a list of the officers and members 
attached to the same, and the condition of the apparatus under 
their charge ; the number of fires the past year, together with 
the amount of loss, and insurance on the same ; also, the number 
of reservoirs, wells, hydrants, and other resources from which 
water can be obtained in cape of fire ; and the expenses of the 
year ending this date. 

The several Engines, Ladder and Hose Carriages belonging to 
the Department, are in good working order, with the exception of 
Engine No. 1, that being in need of extensive repairs. The com- 
panies are full, and the members are prompt when their services 
are called for. 

There has been purchased for the Department the past year, 
two thousand and fifty feet of Leading Hose, one thousand of 
which is of leather, and the balance is the patent cotton hose, 
made by Boyd & Sons, Boston. The Board are of the opinion 
that it is preferable to leather. It costs less, its strength is 
greater ; it requires no oil, and consequently is easier to handle.

ENGINEER S REPORT. 



The only question seems to be in regard to its durability ; a 
question we think time will decide favorably. 

Our Department, although not a large one, will compare favor- 
ably with those of the surrounding cities and towns. We do not 
therefore recommend that it be increased by the addition of any 
more engines ; but we urgently recommend that the facilities for 
obtaining water should be increased. There have been repeated 
instances where three engines have been required to do the work 
that one could do, were water nearer. 

In closing, I should be doing injustice to the members of the 
Department, without saying that they have on all occasions been 
courteous to their officers, and energetic in the performance of all 
their duties as firemen. No class of men are called upon to 
make so great a sacrifice for the safety of the community in 
which they live. The City Government has done much for their 
comfort and convenience in years past, and more remains to be 
done in order to keep up a sufficient interest in this important 
branch of our government. 

Respectfully submitted, 

E. A. COSTIGAN, Chief Engineer.
