This entry in the Images of America series explores Cape Cod Firefighting. From the founding of its first fire department in Provincetown in 1836, Cape Cod has had an exciting and unique firefighting history. Rare and recently discovered photographs depict some of the area's largest fires, as well as its many innovations, from Provincetown's first Hunneman hand pumper, known as the "George Washington," to the brush breakers uniquely designed to respond to the Cape's devastating forest fires. The images in Cape Cod Firefighting offer a tribute to the people and events that have shaped Cape Cod's fire rescue service.
