Raleigh and Wake County Firefighters. An Images of America Series, Volume 1. By: Michael J. Legeros/
The history of Wake County, North Carolina is almost as old as the first town – Raleigh, created in 1792. This is a story of the firefighters and the terrifying threat to wooden structures with minimal water supplies. As early as 1802 citizens contributed to the purchase price of Raleigh’s first fire engine. More than 200 years later, the dedicated members of 23 fire departments answer the still familiar cry of ‘fire’! This publication chronicles Raleigh and Wake County fire protection including: fire engines, stations, firefighters themselves, in over 220 images culled from local newspapers, archives and personal collections. Stories of fierce fires, vicious hurricanes, and flooding are but a few of the dramas. Softbound. B&W Photos. Pgs. 128
