It All Started With A Ladder & A Bucket!

Take The Train To Help Our Sister City

The Story of Ladder #5

Frozen In Time "The Mother's Day Fire of  1926"

The document to the left was found in Crisfield by Kathy and Greg Cox and donated to the Crisfield, Vol. Fire Company. We greatly appreciate their gift, which shows the officers, members and equipment of CFD in the year of 1921. It is filled with local merchants and individuals that supported the company and apparently helped in publishing this booklet.

It tells of a complicated alert system including steam whistles and sirens located at the Ice Plant (Consumers Ice Company in the southwest part of town).

Click on the document picture to the left to download document to read, or save the contents in a PDF format. (Note: this may take several minutes.)

Thanks to the Cox Family of Crisfield.
