Finest Firehouse In The United States

This Web version:

CCORDING to the National Board of Fire Underwriters the brick triple fire house, 522 to 526 Palisade Avenue, in the Hudson City section, is one of the finest and most up-to-date fire houses in the United States. It was recently constructed and is three stories in height with all modern improvements.

The engine is a first size Metropolitan steam fire engine with front drive tractor attached, making it motor-propelled. The tender is a high pressure American La France auto combination chemical wagon with invincible nozzle attached. The truck is an American La France motor-propelled seventy-five-foot self-raising aerial apparatus with water tower attached, and has all modern improvements, including a Browder life net. A reserve engine is on duty at all times in the above house, that in the event of a large fire it can be assigned to any section of the city for emergency use.
