Early reports include duties performed, statistics, financial information, and ages and names of department members. Information on alarms responded to includes date, time, location, and financial loss. Causes of fires are also listed, although this information is included in Fire Marshal reports which date from 1904 to 1931. Fire Alarm Superintendent reports are also included with many early reports. In the 1920s, the reports discuss administrative changes, such as the "day off in eight" system, institution of a school of instruction, rating systems, calisthenics, and, in Fire Marshal reports, fire prevention work. By the 1940s, the reports are less detailed. City Electrician reports are included in this series and date from 1908 to 1916. Howard Joslyn was City Electrician for these years. Reports include the status of the fire alarm system and the police signal system.

This is a collection of clippings or copies of clippings that document the Fire Department of Lawrence, Mass., from 1886 to 2006. The material includes information about firefighters, fires, fire stations, labor negotiations, a few photographs of damage from a 1984 fire (with letter from the Lawrence Arson squad), vehicles, alarm systems, water supply, and firefighting anecdotes. Significant fires that were covered: the Oxford Paper Mill (1973), Essex County Jail (Aug. 15, 1988), Calvary Baptist Church (Jan. 9, 1988), and the Ralph Pill Electric Supply Co. fire (Mar. 6, 1987). The most significant fire not covered was the Malden Mills fire of 1995. Occasionally clippings do not have dates on them. These were kept in the order they were received. A series of many suspicious fires starting in 1990 led to the arrest of Roland Turcotte in September of 1994. Over 200 buildings were set alight in an eighteen-month period in 1991-1992, many of them abandoned residences and industrial sites. ... Read More
