Logan Fire Department History
clear

Local historian, Larry D. Christiansen has recently published an online article on the history of the Logan Fire Department during the 1880's and 90's. It details the gradual development of the department as it struggled to protect Logan with only a volunteer organization. The article also explains how the city acquired better fire suppression equipment during that period of time. Read his article to better understand the history of the department in the 19th century.

The fire department didn't become a paid or professional department until 1917. It has worked since that time to protect the lives and property of our city. Check out its website for current facts about the Logan Fire Department.
