EEPORT. 



Charlesxown, March 20, 1866. 

To the Honorable Mayor and City Council: 

Gentlemen, — In compliance with the requirements of the Fire 
Ordinance I respectfully submit the following report : 

During the past year, owing to the introduction of water into the 
city, great changes have taken place in this department, doing away 
with all the hand engines and reducing the number of men one 
hundred and forty. Engine Companies Nos. 1 and 4 have been 
relieved from service ; Engine Companies 2, 5, and 7, have been 
reorganized into Hose Companies Nos. 2, 3, and 4, — so the Depart- 
ment consists, at present, of one Steam Fire Engine, and Hose 
Carriage attached, with fifteen men ; one Hook and Ladder Car- 
riage, with thirty men ; four Hose Carriages, with twenty men each ; 
and five engineers, — making one hundred and thirty men. One 
new steam engine has been purchased, to be used should occasion 
require; three new four-wheeled carriages have been bought, and five 
of the hand engines have been sold. Each of the four-wheeled 
carriages carry five hundred feet of hose and a connection, by which 
six good and effective streams can be played from one hydrant. 

A large number of fires have taken place, the past year, in very 
combustible localities, many of which were caused by incendiaries. 
But owing to the promptness of the department, and the generally 
good supply of water, a large amount of property has been saved. 

To keep the Department up to the requirements of the city it is 
well to have a good and reliable supply of hose. A number of 
hydrants might be placed, to great advantage, in the city. As 



62 REPORT OF THE CHIEF ENGINEER. 

more than one steamer is seldom required for the protection of the 
city, and the cost of keeping the same might be better expended, I 
would suggest that one of the steamers may be disposed of. 

The buildings occupied by the department are in good order, 
needing but slight repairs. The apparatus, hydrants, reservoirs, 
and wells, are in good condition. 

There are four thousand eight hundred feet of hose in good con- 
dition ; the rest is not of much value. 

There have been, during the past year, one hundred and thirteen 
alarms of fire, — sixty of which were caused by fires in the city ; the 
others by fires out of the city or false alarms. 

The whole amount of loss by fire, in the city, was $30,815 00 ; 
insured, $24,145 00. 

Eighteen hundred feet of new hose have been purchased at a cost 
of $3,336 21; three new hose carriages, $1,800 00; all other 
expenses, $10,952 67. Received by the sale of old engines, car- 
riages, and hose, $5,160 75. 

I also submit the names of the members of the several compa- 
nies, their occupations, etc., with a list of fires and alarms. 

All of which is respectfully presented. 

SAMUEL R. BRINTNALL, Chief Engineer.
