Boston Has Fire Prevention Parade

Boston Has Fire Prevention Parade

Boston and many of the outlying towns of the Metropolitan area, observed the beginning of Fire Prevention Week with a parade and a demonstration drill by the department drill team. Outstanding features of the parade were a horsedrawn steamer that served in the great Boston Fire in 1872; a hand-drawn hand pump from North Reading; a six-foot “mammoth” pumper: two 100-foot aerials: three covered wagons of the Boston Protective Department: and a number of floats carrying various slogans and posters.
