Old Fire Bells

Trenton Sunday Times Advertiser, February 8, 1925

                              The following excerpts are from an article, "Trenton Bells That Have Seen Long Service . . .", By John J. Cleary.
Rusling Hose Company's Bell

The old fire bells were those the City of Trenton's volunteer fire companies used to summon firefighters.  Trenton became a paid fire department on April 4, 1892 and the volunteer companies were disbanded.  The Liberty Engine Company was located at 561 North Clinton Avenue and the Lincoln Fire Company was located at 1005 South Clinton Avenue.
