Description:
The Lincoln Fire & Rescue Department is the agency that provides fire protection and emergency medical services for the city of Lincoln, Nebraska. It was founded on February 9, 1872 consisting of one steam engine, two horse drawn carts, 40 to 50 men, and paraphanelia to outfit a bucket brigade. The number of firefighters grew to the point where on June 4, 1877 it had to split into two divisions, No. 1 and No. 2. In 1879, the department made its first great impact on the city by saving a total of $90,750 USD worth of property while only losing $2,250 USD. The first fire company that was paid was located at the corner of 10th and Q streets. The first paid fire department alarm was on Friday January 22, 1886.
