04/20/08 94 W, 3 I - + 15 - 13 Raleigh Fire Department Fire Calls, 1887-1910

What was the call volume of the Raleigh Fire Department before 1912, back in the volunteer era? Yours Truly has scanned several yearly reports between 1887 and 1910, and compiled them into a single PDF document. It's a bit large, 6.6. megabytes. Give it time to load. And as the introduction page points out, check this RFD historical chart or these timelines to place this information in context. These were the decades of horse- and hand-drawn apparatus, of corner alarm boxes and hydrant pressure-powered fire hoses.
