Description and Holding Information
General Court. Act establishing a fire department in the City of Boston, 1825
In 1825, the General Court directed the City Council of Boston to establish a fire department with a Chief Engineer, Fire Wardens, and Engine Men
elected or appointed by the Council. The Council was to provide certificates of employment, fix the salary of the Chief at not more than $500, set
duties, conduct rules, and penalties for breaking the rules. Firemen were to have the authority to pull down or demolish houses if necessary. The City
was to pay compensation under certain circumstances. If a fireman served for ten years, he was exempt from most militia duty. All previous laws about
Boston fire departments were repealed. (Digitized from a microfilm copy of title originally held by the Massachusetts State Library).
