Harvard Fire Dept. - A Century of Service
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. After this near-tragedy, 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 loyal Harvard citizen volunteer firefighters still stands today. Take a look at the complete history of the Harvard Fire Department in this video.
