This year, the Raleigh Fire Department celebrates its 100th anniversary as a career fire department. Historian Mike Legeros looks back over the past two centuries, beginning with the city’s creation in 1792, the formation of the first fire company in 1819, and the organization of the volunteer Raleigh Fire Department in 1852. He’ll continue into the modern age with a decade-by-decade fire department history in the 20th Century. This workshop will also provide a contextual history of 300 years of firefighting history in North Carolina.
