Nineteenth Annual Report of the Fire Department of the City of Boston : From December 31, 1890, to January 31, 1892 (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from Nineteenth Annual Report of the Fire Department of the City of Boston: From December 31, 1890, to January 31, 1892 Within the year the city ordinances have been so changed as not only to restore to this department one Of its most vital features, the fire-alarm telegraph, but also to place under its charge the whole duty and responsibility Of the inspection of wires. A report of this branch of the service is given else where. While the work Of this bureau is unquestionably a benefit to the city, the value Of the service might be greatly increased if it was invested with more authority and to this end additional legislation is recommended. Immediate improvements in the fire-alarm system are in progress or in contemplation, and when the new plant on Bristol street shall be established, it will be the aim Of the Commis sioners to see that it is as complete in all valuable devices for quick and effective work as modern invention can make it.
