ENGINEER'S REPORT. 



Engineer's Office, 

Chaklestown, March, 1869. 

To His Honor the Mayor and City Council : 

Gentlemen, — Section 6th of the Rules and Regulations of 
the Fire Department makes it the duty of the Chief Engineer 
to make an Annual Report of the force and actual condition of 
the Fire Department, with the Rolls of the different companies, 
and their age, occupation and residences. Also, the amount of 
money appropriated and received for the use of the Department, 
and the amount expended for the same, the number of fires 
and alarms, with the amount of loss and the amount of insur- 
ance, as near as can be ascertained on the same, and the 
owners and occupants. Also, the number of reservoirs and 
hydrants where water can be obtained. And in obedience to 
the same, I respectfully make the following report : 

FORCE AND CONDITION OF THE DEPARTMENT. 

The Department consists of a Chief Engineer and four As- 
sistant Engineers ; four Hose Companies of 20 men each, ' 
one Steam Engine and Hose Company, 23 men, and one Hook 
and Ladder Company of 30 men ; in all, one hundred and 
thirty-eight men. 

The Companies are all full, and in good condition ; they 
have in their charge, five four-wheeled Hose Carriages, two 
Steam Fire Engines, and one Hook and Ladder Truck. The 



62 engineer's report. 

houses occupied by the several companies, are all in good con- 
dition, with the exception of the house of Bunker Hill Hose 
Company. This house has an addition of wood, one story high, 
and in case of fire in the large buildings adjoining, it would be 
very dangerous to the main house,. It also has a leaky roof, 
and cannot be kept tight. 

I would recommend that an addition of brick be built two 
stories in height. 

THE APPARATUS. 

During the past year the Howard Engine has been rebuilt, 
and is now as good as new. The Mystic Steamer is in good 
condition, and will compare for service favorably with any 
engine in the State. The Hook and Ladder Truck has been re- 
built, and is now in good order for service. The rest of the 
apparatus is in good condition. 

The Old Relief Engine, No. 1, has lately been sold, and this 
is the last of our hand engines. " In the place of the Hand 
Engine at the Poor Farm," we have a two-wheeled Jumper, 
with three hundred and fifty feet of hose thereon, for duty in 
case of fire on the premises. The Mystic Water has been 
carried across the bridge the past year, and with the Jumper 
and Hose the premises are well protected against fire. There is 
also one two-wheeled Jumper, when not in service, stored at the 
City building on Winthrop Street, — also five Hose Sleighs for 
winter service. 

NEW APPARATUS NEEDED. 
I would especially call your attention to the need of a Lad- 
^der Truck at the upper end of the city. We have only one 
Ladder Truck, and with the large buildings already erected and 
in the course of erection, we find that at almost every fire, of 
any account, we need more Ladders and Ladder men. The 
Board of Engineers are unanimous in recommending a new 
Ladder Truck to be stationed at some location above Baldwin 
Street. 



engineer's report. 63 



HOSE. 



The Fire Department has now 7,500 feet of Hose in their 
charge, and 4,000 feet is in good condition and 3,500 in ordi- 
nary ; also, 350 feet of serviceable Hose at the Poor Farm. 

During the past year we have put into service five hundred 
feet of Leather Hose, and five hundred feet of Boyd's patent 
Cotton Hose. And we find by experience that tlie Cotton Hose 
is the cheapest and most economical of any hose we can use. 
It does not need any oil, and when properly dried it is the ., 
most durable to wear. 

Tlie new Engine House and Tower, erected in 1866, is still 
visited by many firemen and citizens from other cities and 
towns, and still holds the name of the model house and tower 
of New England. This winter the heating apparatus has been 
thoroughly overhauled and changed, from low to high pressure, 
and now gives good satisfaction in all its points.^ 

FIRE ALARM. 

I would respectfully call your special attention to the need of 
introducing the Fire Alarm into this city. Last year the subject 
was brought before the City Council and received the support 
of the citizens at large. There are several reasons why it is 
practicable to put it up in this city ; one of which is the slight 
cost of putting it up' and the annual cost of running it after it is 
Tip. The whole cost of putting the alarm in order in this city 
would be only about $9000, and the running expense yearly 
would not be over $300. The permanent men at the Steamer 
House could be instructed to take the whole care and repairing 
of the same, and a saving could be made in the cost of running 
the Steamer Company enough to pay the interest on the whole 
cost and the cost of running the Alarm yearly (and at the same 
time make the company as efficient as it always has been) ; and 
the good effect it would have on the rest of the Department 
would certainly be satisfactory enough for the expense of the 
outlay, as all the companies would get the alarm at the same 



64 engineer's eepoet. 

time ; and it would create a generous rivalry that would 
greatly improve the eflficiency of the Department. And an- 
other reason, the citizens in the vicinity of Chelsea and Water 
streets are talking of asking for another Hose Co. and an alarm 
bell in their part of the city. The Fire Alarm would satisfy this 
portion of the city, as it would make the companies so much 
quicker in getting there, as they would know exactly the point 
that the alarm came from. And another reason for the alarm 
would be the good effect it would have upon gentlemen engaged 
in manufacturing, as it is well known that many people are 
talking about erecting various large buildings for manufacturing 
purposes, and with the water power of Charlestown, and with 
the Fire Department we now have and with the Fire Alarm, 
they could not find any city or town where they could be so ably 
protected from fire as in our city. 

I have placed this subject so strongly before you upon the 
wishes of a large number of our citizens, and upon the unani- 
mous request of the Board of Engineers. 

FIRES AND ALARMS. 

The Fire Department have been called out on sixty-one bell 
alarms ; of which the whole or part of the Department were in 
service thirty-one times from fires in the City, and from ten 
false alarms and fifteen slight fires and from five alarms out of 
the City. Assistance has been rendered once at Cambridge, 
and -twice at Somerville. 

The whole amount of loss in this City was $50,344 ; the whole 
amount of insurance, $39,709 ; making a total loss of $10,635 ; 
which is a large reduction from the number of fires and alarms 
and loss from previous years. This- satisfactory result must be 
given to the grand supply of Mystic water and the promptness 
and efficiency of the Fire Department, which I am proud to 
acknowledge still receives the cordial and generous support of 
the City Council and the citizens generally. 

At an alarm of fire on the night of Dec. 3d, Mr. George H. 
Q^rdner, of the Washington Hose Co., fell and broke his arm 



engineer's report. 65 

and has been disabled from work since. He has been taken 
care of by the Charitable Association. Mr. Charles M. Glazier, 
Asst. Foreman of Red Jacket Hose Co., at the fire at Allen's 
Block, Jan 1st, 1869, received an injury in the hand from an 
axe. He also received aid from the Charitable Association. 
At an alarm of fire on the evening of Jan. 30th, Mr. Martin 
Turnbull, an active member of the Howard Engine and Hose 
Co., fell and was run over by the Hose Carriage of Franklin 
Hose Co., and badly injured. He is still disabled, and unfortu- 
nately was not a member of the Charitable Association, and con- 
sequently was not entitled to aid from that source. But the 
City Council generously gave the Association $100 to be appro- 
priated for his relief. These make all the casualties the past 
year. The Charitable Association is now a permanent institu- 
tion, and is worthy of generous assistance from our citizens. 

FINANCES. 

The amount expended for the Fire Department was ten 
thousand seven hundred and twenty-eight dollars and fifty-one 
cents. The whole amount appropriated by the City Council, and 
received from the sale of old materials, heating Cadets' Armory, 
and use of engines, nine thousand six hundred and fifty-three 
dollars and fifty-eight cents; making a deficiency of one thousand 
seventy-four dollars and ninety three cents, occasioned by the 
rebuilding of the Hook and Ladder Carnage and the repairs on 
Red Jacket Hose Co. House, and repairs on the steam heating 
apparatus in the Steamer's House, that was not estimated for 
when the appropriation for the financial year was asked for, but 
which was necessary to be made, and ordered by the Committee 
on Fire Department at the request of the Board of Engineers. 

RESERVOIRS. 

There are 40 Reservoirs, 111 Lowry Hydrants, and 22 Single 
Hydrants belonging to tlie Mystic Water Works, and 1 Lowry 
and 1 Single Hydrant belonging to the Fitchburg Railroad Cor- 
poration. Also 1 Lowry Hydrant at the Gas House at the foot

of Dorrance St. Also 12 Single Hydrants belonging to the 
Boston Water Works on their line of works. A list of the 
Mystic Water Hydrants and their location accompanies this 
Report. ; 

SPARE LADDERS. 

There are ladders stationed on the several school houses, 
engine houses, and also on the City Hall. 

CONCLUSION. 

In closing this Report I wish to return my sincere thanks to 
His Honor the Mayor and Members of the City Council for 
their generous support the past year. To the Committee oji 
Fire Department, and to the Assistants associated with me, and
