N THE MONTH OF MAY, 1886, Vancouver was
as yet a tiny spot in the wilderness, comprising"
scarcely a thousand persons, the majority of those
living" in that part of the town now bounded by
Hastings, Cambie and Carrall streets on three
sides, and on the other by the waters of Burrard
inlet. A number of the public-spirited citizens,
recognizing" the ever present danger from fire, met in the building
used as a jail and court-house, which occupied the present site of
No. 1 Fire Station on Water street.
After some deliberation, a volunteer brigade was formed, with
a membership of forty. Mr. J. Griffiths was elected chief. At the
same time the Town Council purchased one engine, four hand reels,
and 2,500 feet of 2J^ inch rubber hose, same to be delivered as soon
as possible. Pending" the arrival of apparatus, the newly formed
volunteer brigfade was at a standstill, and could do nothing" but perfect the organization. Rules were adopted and officers elected, and
the members waited patiently.
Such were the conditions when, on the afternoon of June 13th,
the cry of % Fire !" was raised.    Excited men ran from door to door
Captain No. i Co.
calling- on people to fly for their lives. It must be remembered that
west of Cambie street was at this time in its primeval state, being"
covered with heavy timber and dense undergrowth. The fire started
in this, and it was quickly apparent that the town was doomed.
Desperate men fought the flames, foot by foot, with the means at
their disposal, but were finally forced to fly for their lives, so quickly
did the fire travel. Many escaped by clambering" on hastily built
rafts and pushing out on the waters of Burrard inlet. Others soug"ht
safety by way of False creek. The elements seemed to have entered
into a compact to destroy. The wind had risen to a gale, blowing"
the fire directly on the waters of the inlet, while the tide, rushing inshore at a speed of eight or ten miles an hour, seemed to be diabolically intent on forcing all who ventured on it back into the raging
furnace from which they were trying to escape. The area burned
extended from Cambie to Carrall street, and from Hastings street
to Burrard inlet. One building only, the Regina hotel, situated at
the corner of Cambie and Water streets, escaped the devouring" element. The alarm was given at 2:20 p.m., and at 5 p.m. the fire had
about burned itself out. Men, anxious and worn out, but filled with
the courage for which the hardy pioneer of the West is noted, began
at once to consider ways and means of replacing their homes and

providing" what present shelter they could for the women and children. Tents, clothing", blankets and other necessaries were sent
from Victoria and New Westminster, lumber was supplied by the
Hastings mills, and the rebuilding of a new Vancouver over the yet
warm ashes of the old one was begun.
To add to the horror and desolation of the scene, the charred
remains of nine persons were found. More were known to have
perished, althoug"h their bodies wrere never found, and it is supposed
that they were entirely consumed, or that in their mad rush, blinded
by smoke and fire,, they stumbled into old wells and were drowned.
In July occurred what has been known as the second scare.
The people had not, as yet, recovered from the effects of the disaster of June when the existence of the town was again threatened
by the bush fires surrounding" it. With the only too vivid remembrance of the previous month before them, they set to work moving-
such of their property as could be removed. Stoves and other
household effects were hastily buried, but a fortunate change in the
direction of the wind averted, the catastrophe.
On August lst the engine, hose reels and hose ordered by the
Council arrived, and a load of anxiety thereby taken off the minds
of the people. This apparatus was put under canvas on the corner
now occupied by Thos. Dunn & Co. as a ship chandlery, pending
the building of the present No. 1 Fire Station. This building was
hurried to completion and the apparatus moved into it. The engine
was christened the " M. A. MacLean," as a mark of respect to Mr.
M. A. MacLean, the first mayor of Vancouver. J. A. Morrison was
appointed engineer. In the following September A. W. Cameron
was appointed engineer to succeed J. A.  Morrison.    During the

winter of 1886 and summer of 1887 pumping tanks were built on the
corners of Water and Cordova, Hastings and Abbott, Columbia and
Cordova, Water and Powell, and Dunsmuir and Granville streets.
In May, 1887, bush fires again threatened the destruction of the
town. But the volunteers proved equal to the occasion, and after a
fierce fight, lasting from 7 p.m. till 3 a.m. next day, the fire was got
under control.
The fire line described a circle from the clearing in the vicinity
of the present city hospital site to the corner of Hastings and Howe
streets, and back towards English bay. The engine was stationed
at the tank on the corner of Abbott and Hastings streets and 2,400
feet of hose laid. That tank was pumped dry, and the engine and
hose moved to the tank at the corner of Granville and Dunsmuir
streets. About midnight the wind, which had been blowing briskly
throughout the afternoon and evening, died away, and by 3 a.m.,
all present danger being over, the brigade returned to quarters.
But not for long, for, on the morning of the next day, at 2 o'clock,
another alarm told the citizens that their lives and property were
again in danger. The volunteers responded promptly, and after
another hard fought battle with the flames, lasting from 2 a.m. till 9
a.m., and in which they were materially assisted by the work of a
shovel brigade (who were hired for the occasion and supplied with
shovels by the Council), the fire was put out. The work of the
volunteers in subduing this fire undoubtedly saved the town from a
repetition of the disaster of June 13, 1886.
The officers of the brigade at this time were : J. H. Carlisle,
chief; J. Blair, foreman No. 1 Company ; J. Mettier, foreman No.
2 Company, and A. W. Cameron, engineer. )

you, a customer or user of such goods as we have
here, to know that you can buy any ,of these

big store, such as our, offers you every advantage with its big stocks to select from.
We place before you the lowest possible prices,
the best selection and the biggest stocks in British

The volunteer records not being available, it is impossible to
give a list of the members or an account of the many smaller fires
and alarms responded to during this period.
In the early part of 1888 J. H. Carlisle was succeeded by W.
Mackinnon as chief, but was re-elected about three months later.
In May, 1888, the Council purchased a second engine, afterwards known as the "Jos. Humphreys," a village hook and ladder
truck, two hand hose reels and a team of horses for the " M. A.
MacLean" engine. These were the first pair of Fire Department
horses purchased by the Council.
A Hook and Ladder company of seventeen men was formed,
with W. McGirr as captain, and became very efficient.
No. 2 Station was built about this time and occupied by No. 2
Company. The !| Jos. Humphreys " engine and two hand hose reels
comprised the equipment of this station. Wm. Hamilton was appointed engineer, with J. W. Campbell as stoker.
In September, 1889, a paid Department was established by the
Council. J. H. Carlisle was appointed chief, with the following list
of members : T. Whiston, foreman No. 1 Company ; Geo. Evans,
foreman No. 2 Company ; A. W. Cameron and Wm. Hamilton, engineers ; D. Biggar and J. W. Campbell, stokers; W. L. Heyward,
H. E. Campbell, L. Eggert and W. A. Williamson, hosemen ; T.
Simpson, driver of No. 1 engine, and A. Clegg, driver of No. 1 hose
wagon. The Department had just received this wagon from the
Silsby Manufacturing Co., and to it belongs }he distinction of being
the first hose wagon on the Pacific Coast. It is still in commission
at No. 1 Station, and as serviceable as when first purchased.
PIRE  DEPARTMENT—Continued.
The following call men were also appointed at this time : J
Harvey, G. G. Henderson, J. Glen,' Chas. Millington, H. Stewart,
Geo. Taylor, J. Seajohn, F. Britton, T. Blair and G. Blair, making
the total manual strength of the Department twenty-two men and a
chief. The call members were paid $15.00 per month, and besides
having to answer alarms during the day, were required to sleep in
the fire stations.
In February, 1890, the Gamewell fire alarm telegraph was installed, the battery being set up in No. 1 Station. Fifteen boxes
were located in different parts of the city, and on the 25th February
the first alarm (a test) was sent in from box 15, then located at the
corner of Granville and Hastings streets.
In 1891 No. 3 Station was built, and the " M. A. MacLean " engine placed in it.
About the same time No. 2 hose wagon, built by Winch of Vancouver, was placed in commission at No. 2 Station.
The water works system, which had been established in 1889 by
a company, was purchased by the city in March, 1892. New mains
were laid and hydrants located as the city extended.
In December of that year a Morrison duplex chemical engine
was added to the Department and placed in No. 1 Station.
In July, 1893, call men were dispensed with and the Department
established on a fully paid basis.
In October of the same year a third hose wagon was purchased
and placed in No. 3 Station.
From 1894 till 1899 nothing further was done in the way of add
ing to the apparatus of the Department.     In  the  latter year  a

Waterous engine, capable of pumping 1,000 gallons per minute, a
75-foot aerial truck and a double 60-gallon "Champion" chemical
engine were purchased. The steady growth of the city, and the
erection of numbers of fine business blocks, three or more stories in
height, made this expenditure necessary.
In concluding this brief review of the Vancouver Fire Department, it may be said that, so far as the safeguarding of property
goes, only a small part of the value of such an organization is shown
in the reduction of fire losses. It should be remembered that insurance rates are based to a great extent on the efficiency of the Fire
Department. There are many reasons besides.these for the need
of an efficient Department. The fact of Vancouver having escaped
with a small annual fire loss is no guarantee that such conditions are
to continue. The only hope of safety from fires lies in eternal
vigilance.
Apparatus.
This consists of two steam fire engines, one first size Waterous
and one Ronald ; also, one Ronald in reserve ; three hose wagons,
one 75-foot extension Hayes aerial truck, one 80-gallon Morrison
duplex chemical engine, one double 60-gallon Champion chemical
engine, one village hook and ladder truck, two supply wagons.
Manual Force of Department.
One chief, one electrician, three captains, two engineers (steam),
one secretary (detailed), two stokers, eight drivers, two truckmen,
seven hosemen, two chemical engineers.
FIRE   DEPARTMENT—Continued.
Benefit Association.
On the 8th November, 1898, the Lindley Opera company gave
a benefit performance for the firemen of Vancouver, the receipts of
which amounted to $75.00. In response to suggestions from members of the Department to make this sum the nucleus of a fund for
injured and disabled firemen, a meeting was called by Chief Carlisle
for the 14th November. The meeting was held at No. 2 Station,
and was attended by two members from each station. Chief
Carlisle was elected chairman and Captain Lester secretary. The
representatives from each station were : No. 1 Station, Capt. Lester
and A. Clegg ; No. 2, W. G. Macdonald and Jas. Mclnnes ; No. 3,
Capt. Moran and A. W. Cameron.
On 31st January, 1901, a second meeting was held and a constitution and by-laws adopted, and the following officers elected :
Honorary president, Mayor Jas. F. Garden; president, Chief J. H.
Carlisle; vice-president, A. W. Cameron ; secretary, Capt. Jas. A.
Lester; trustees, R. H. Macauley, A. Clegg and Jas. Mclnnes.
The membership of the Association was composed of the members of the Fire Department and the following honorary members :
Jas. F. Garden, Esq., and H. P. Gilmour, Esq., the former mayor
of the city, and the latter a member of the City Council and chairman of the fire committee.
The first annual ball of the Association was held in the City hall
on 10th February, 1899, and was so eminently successful, socially
and financially, that the Association decided to make it an annual
affair.
The Association has been a success since its organization. It
has, of course, been impossible to provide for its maintenance by

dues alone, and the main dependence has necessarily been upon the
annual ball receipts and donations from citizens. The affairs of the
Association have been carried on in a business-like manner.
The Association takes this opportunity to thank the citizens for
their kind and generous support on every occasion. It is the toast
of the Association that to no other society or association do the
citizens contribute so liberally to the purchase of ball tickets, and it
is desired to express a cordial appreciation of this, and also of the
liberality shown in advertising in this souvenir.

Vancouver, B. C. J. H. CARLISLE, Chief.
Born November, 1858, in the town of Hillsboro,
Albert county, New Brunswick. Former occupation,
teamster.    Married.
Appointed chief of Volunteer Department in November, 1886, and, with the exception of three months
in 1888, remained chief till the establishment of the paid
Department in 1889. In September of that year the
Council elected him chief of the first paid Department,
a position which he still retains.
The many difficulties incident to the organization
of the Department, as well as those encountered in its
administration since, have been successfully overcome
by him, and to-day the Department is considered
among the most efficient on the Pacific coast. >6X+4>4>4»4>a4»4*,4,^Ul4.4,XXJ>^

Crorey
fiand-Ball
tropby.
By Jas. A. Lester.
'HIS handsome cup, a picture
of which is here shown, was
presented in 1900 by Geo.
E. Trorey to the members of the
Vancouver Fire Department. The
conditions were that it be competed
for annually by members of the
Department.
The game of hand-ball is preeminently a game suitable for firemen, in that it calls for an amount
of stamina and energy, a quickness
of eye and decision. These are
physical qualities absolutely neces
sary in a fireman, and any exercise
tending to their development is
desirable. Chief Carlisle was quick
to note the good points of the game,
and encouraged the playing of it in
every way, as a means of keeping
the men physically fit. Hand-ball
courts were built at Nos. 1 and 3
Fire Stations, and games between
picked teams from the three stations
were arranged.
At the end of the season of 1900
Capt. Thompson and W. E. Flood,
having defeated their opponents in
every game, were formally presented with the cup by Mr. Trorey.
In the spring of 1901 a series of
games were arranged, the first of
which was played on 3rd June, and
the last on 21st September. Each
team entered, played ten games,
and two games were played each
week. J. E. Michell and J. Courtney were the winners of this series,
0
and hold the cup until defeated.
