The state of Georgia has an extensive history in firefighting. The object of this thread is to provide a way for us to tell some of the history of our departments to other people. Tell us your story.
I'll start us off by telling that I am a firefighter with the city of Rome, Rome fire was established in 1850 as an all volunteer fire department. On July 1 1908 it became all paid and by 1914 Rome became the second city in the state of Georgia to have a completely motorized fleet.
