      1890-After much persuasion, haggling and complaints about far too many pieces of apparatus running every box alarm (At this time 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.  Being the only truck company at the time, the Mt. Vernon Hook and Ladder covered almost every box on a first. The first box to come in under the new districting schedule was Box 7 at Thirteenth and Market on this day at 5:50 p.m. for a frame stable on Simon’s estate on Derry near Thirteenth.  The building and contents were a total loss.

                1887-Box 21 at Sixth and Dauphin Streets, was pulled at 12:50 a.m.(0050 hrs).  The log book shows Manada Ave above Harris St. (I was never able to locate a “ Manada Ave. ”) Anyway an incendiary fire completely destroyed the frame stable of J. Caldwell, butcher with a loss of $150.
