Interesting report that shows how the fire brigade worked 100 years ago.

The reason for the suggested change isn’t clear though.

“Fire Brigade Management Committee: The Committee recommended that No 6 of the Fire Brigade Management Rules be amended so as to provide that instead of the first ten men to arrive at the Fire Station being the men to go to a fire out of the district, the Chief Officer shall have power to select the ten men to go to such fire whether they be the first ten men at the station or not.”
