Harvard Fire Dept. 100th Anniversary
In 1917, a large fire threatened to destroy every building around the Harvard Common. Fortunately, a couple of nearby towns had a new firefighting tool: a motorized fire engine. The Harvard community decided to purchase their own motorized fire engine, and to create a volunteer organization to maintain and operate the new vehicle, as well as commit to regular training to improve their firefighting techniques and capabilities. With that, the Harvard Fire Department was founded on March 9, 1921. The tradition of a group of loyal Harvard citizen volunteer firefighters still stands today. In commemoration of the Harvard Fire Department's Century of Service, we are celebrating with a muster in town, our Annual Turkey Raffle (virtual, this year) and some cool swag for everyone to buy to support the HFD.
