      1887-Box 21, at 12:50 a.m.(0050 hrs) Manada Ave(?) above Harris St.
      Incendiary fire totally destroyed the frame stable of J. Caldwell, butcher. Loss
      $150. (Box 21 was at 6th & Dauphin at the time, Manada St. is off S. Cameron St.
      so the real location of the fire is unknown)

      1890-After much persuasion, haggling and complaints about far too many pieces
      of apparatus running every box alarm(there were eleven companies, and all
      seven engine companies were “two-piece” at the time)the fire department was
      finally placed into a two alarm system. Generally speaking there were about six
      companies on the first alarm and five companies on the second or general alarm.
      To call for a general alarm the 2-2-2 signal was tapped out on the fire
      alarm system. The Mt. Vernon Hook and Ladder covered almost every box on a first
      alarm as they were the only truck company at the time. The first box to come
      in under the new districting schedule was Box 7(13th & Market) at 5:50 p.m.
      for a frame stable on Simon’s estate on Derry near 13th. The building and
      contents were a total loss.

      2000-The HFD began responses automatically with Automatic External
      Defibrillators (AED) on Tower 2, Wagon 4, and Tower 3. Criteria for the responses was
      established as cardiac arrests, electrical shock, drowning, unconscious
      persons. . .Squad 8 received theirs August 7th.
