Fire Department of City

Ogden Excellent Record of the Two Stations - Volunteer Department at

In every progressive city on? de
partment must alwavs be kept up to
date in onler that the city may bo

one that deals with the extinguishing
and preventing of fires In every c i v
there is the necessity for efficient fire
fighting apparatus that the propert..
of the citizens may be protected, and
no city may roach out through its
publicity bureau and ask for more ci'
Izens unless that city can offer ampl-'
protection to the new citizens when
they coustru l factories, stores or
Despite the fact that all modern
buildings are built of fireproof ma
terial and the fire departments a'e
used less than formerly, there Is no
movement on the part of common
wealths to decrease the sire or effi
ciency of their fire departments !n
fact, just the contrary is the case, be
cause of the larger and more cost!v
structures which are being erected.
While better constructed buildings
have had a tendency to reduce the
number of fires to a small extent, the
increase in size and cost of the struc
ture have resulted In an Increase In
losses when fires do occur.
Beginning with the volunteer de
partment, which was organized early
In the history of the city, Ogden has
possessed a department for fire pro
tection that has been a source of
pride. The volunteers. with their
meager apparatus, had a reputation
for courage and fire fighting efficiency
that Is still the subject of praise With
that organization as a precedent. It
is no wonder that Ogrlen has one of
the best fire departments in the west
There are two complete ftre sta
tions In the city. In addition to the
voluuteer station at Five Points, and
there is a movement on foot to estab
lish another station -in the northern
part of the city possibly at Washing
ton avenue and Twelfth street.
The apparatus at the central station
consists of one combination chemicar
and hose automobile purchased at a
cost of $6,000; one chemical wagon
with a capacity of 180 gallons uf
chemical; one hose wagon and an ad
dltlonal hose wagon; one 75-foot aer
ial truck; on' steamer and an auto

tanks for the use of the chief

" Station No 2 was re-established a
few years ago for the better protec
tion of the bench district Before the
use of automobile apparatus, much
lime was consumed because of the
Slo rate of speed made by the horses
up the bill. The wisdom of estab
lishing the second Btatlon has been
proen time and time again because
the location of the station near the
scene of fires on the bench has en
abled the firemen to extinguish the
Bame before a great amount of dam
age has been done An alarm from
the bench is also answered by the
auto truck from No 1 station
The apparatus of Station No -. lo
cated near the corner of Monroe u
enue and Twenty-third street, con
iMs of one combination chemical
and hose wagon of the latest type
One wagon has served the purpose of
the department because the height of
the ouildlng6 does not demand a truck
or other equipment. With the appar
atus of the- central station back of
i hem at all times, there naa been no
need for additional fire fighting ma
terial for Hi. men at the sub station.

This article would no' be complete
without mention of the voluuteer
firemen of Fine Points. The organ
ization consists of twenty-three men
vlth lames Harrop as foreman A
rcgjlar salary Is not paid to the
members but they receive $1 for the
first hour spent in actual service and
50 cents for each additional hour.
I'pon hearing the big alarm bell the
volunteers are expected to drop what
. irei work they may be engaged in to
take up duty of fire fighting.
The apparatus consists oi hand
pump, one hook and ladder wagon
and a hose cart This is the appara
tus used by the old volunteer organ
ization oi Ogden a'nd no doubt will
be placed In a museum when one is
established to hold objects of histori
cal interest to Ogden.
Notwithstanding the fact that tlrey
are somewhat handicapped, the vol
unteers have done excellent work.
Onh within the last few years has
the water mains been extended to
Five Points and a pump that could
dr.-.w water from wells or ditches
was needed if a fire was to be ex
tinguished At the present time, with
the swift auto chemical, the fires in
that neighborhood can he reached hv
the central department, but ihris
still grest use for the volunteers be
cause of the fact that water mains
do not extend throughout all that
section ot the city.
During the ear of 1012. rhe cltr
fire department spent 12f hours in
actual sen Ice at fires To extinguish
the smaller blaze. gallons or
chemical was U6ed and 41,600 feet
of two and one-half inch hose was
laid while 9,660 feet of one-incb hose
wns used. During the same time the
ladders that were extended would
reach f08 feet into the air. The dis
tance traveled bv the department in
answering alarms was 60J miles In
surance amounting to 646,360 was
paid for fire losses while the actual
loss to owners of property through
fire was $35,760.
With the large resenoir ol Ogden's
municipal water system always hold
Ing In reserve, thousands of gallons
of water, the city Is never In danger
f the flames through lack of water
The fact that there is plenty ol wate
for an emergency was well Illustrated
