The fire horses stand ready in their stalls, and at the sound of the alarm gong the stall chains are let down and each horse goes quickly to his place at the engine, and the big iron collars are clamped around their necks and off they go to the fire, with the engine, at break-neck speed.

The automobile fire engine can go to the fires very swiftly.  Many times the saving of a few minutes by the firemen in reaching a fire means stopping the blaze before it becomes too great.

The Brave Fireman rescues many people who are caught in burning buildings, in this way risking his life that others may be saved from the smoke and flames.  Many people owe their lives to the bravery of the firemen.

The hose nozzle has been taken up to the roof of a building next the one afire and the firemen are sending the water into the upper floors of the burning building.  The hose nozzle is very difficult for the firemen to hold.

The fire alarm is sounded by a big gong in the station from street alarm boxes near where the fire occurs.  The firemen know these alarm stations so well that they seldom look for the address, but dash off quickly to the correct place.

The FIREMEN’S dog goes to every fire, running beside the horses, barking a command to hurry.  He gets to the fire hydrant first and sits there panting until the Firemen come up to attach the hose and turn on the water.
