Hilltop Hose - Fiftenth AnniversaryThe men of WFD's Hilltop Hose Company Three gather outside their headquarters. We think this photo was taken at the fifteenth anniversary celebration of the company’s formation. There were 150 guests representing present, former and honorary members, city officials, and invited guests. The evening included “ a fine musical program... a banquet and social time”. The only men we could identify were Elmer Young, company Secretary (front row, second from right), Frank M. Lincoln, company Foreman.

Pic of the Week - December 31, 2015Since the early 1950s, the Fire Department's Bank Street Headquarters was heavily decorated for the Christmas and New Year's Holidays. Firefighters who put the decorations up had memories of the preparations. One said that one of the difficulties of putting up the decorations was that the department's "cherry picker" truck would sometimes have to be moved quickly if other apparatus was called out for an emergency.
