Paris History

Paris Fire Department founded in 1875 2 full time firefighters working 24 hours a day 7 days a week at $75 per month.

A STEAM PUMPER ENGINE.  Paris fireman needed to build up a "head of steam" in the boiler before they could start fighting fires with this 1880s fire engine. The horses that pulled the equipment were stabled in the basement of the fire station on courthouse square, but two horses were always kept upstairs to be ready quickly.  Paris had early fire fighting equipment by 1810 but the first formally trained fire company was not formed until 1874 after the disastrous courthouse fire.
