(Lock Photo, Kayenay Engraving) which was undreamed of by lha early day company. The Denison Hose company Chief Shire has in his record book was the first organized department in the city. It was a volunteer organization and was proud of its record as a running team Thel equipment consisted of a two wheel high cart on which the hose was carried on a reel. A bane pump was used for pumping water. Mason City had not thought of a water system at that time, the citizens relying chiefly on wells so cisterns located at various points throughout the business district supplied the water. One of these cisterns was l o c a t e d . i n the basement of the fire station, which was located at 17 Firsl street southwest at that time, directly across the alley from the present station. Still in Service. The same hose and reel, or two wheel hose cart, is in fire service at the present time at the Jacob E. Decker and Sons packing plant by the plant fire department. A - f e w years later the Denison Hose company purchased a horse drawn cart on four wheels and a team of fine gray horses.' At this time the fire station was moved across the alley to 19 First street southwest, where there was a two story frame building. Later a horse drawn hook and ladder wagon and two more fire horses were purchased. The old fire station at 17 First street southwest was later turned nto the city hall, then the water works office and later into the police station. Paid Drivers Hired.

Six men were paid at this time, with 0 call volunteers completing the department. This was later made nto a full paid department and the ·olunteers were disbanded. Capt. James Kelly, oldest man on the department, entered the ervice when the paid department vas organized.
