Firefighters looking for pieces of past
Saturday, July 9, 2011
Firefighters are asking the public to help find documents or pictures that could be used as part of the celebration of the 100-year anniversary of the full-time Jefferson City Fire Department.
Fire Capt. Tim Young said events are being planned for Oct. 6-7, 2012.
“A Century of Full-time Service” will be the theme.
“For 70 years prior to the full-time service, the city was served by a volunteer fire department, and the original volunteer department was formed in January 1842,” Young said.
