Answering a fire alarm in 1920s NY City

Thursday, January 03, 2013


This is a video of the procedure NY City fire fighters used in the 1920s. About 2:20 in there are a lot of shots from a camera mounted on the fire truck as it navigates the chaotic traffic. At points they have to drive on sidewalks to make it through the busy streets. It is absolutely hair raising.

Having the proper fire alarm equipment in homes and offices is paramount to the safety of those within.
