    The first three fire companies in the then Town of Marlborough were organized in 1849: the Torrent, The Hydraulicon and the Okammakamessit. These three fire companies agreed to come under one set of rules and one Chief Engineer...under the direction of the Reverend Sylvester Bucklin, they were offically organized as the Marlborough Fire Department in 1855.

    Two of the three original hand tubs are still in existence. The Torrent is now owned by the Ancient and Honorable Fire Brigade of Marlborough. The Okammakamessit is owned by a private organization.

        My Department (Spotswood) was established in 1898. And the other one I'm thinking of joining (Helmetta) was established in 1895.

                  The Youngstown Volunteer Fire Company, later VFD was founded April 14, 1868. It became the Youngstown Fire Department, as a paid organization on May 16, 1891 when the volunteer department was disbanded and was fully paid, although some members had been paid by the call before that. May 16, 1891 is the date the department recognizes as its beginning.

                      Sad, but I do not even know when my full-time department was formed. I asked about it this last week to no avail. I will have to do some real digging to find out.
