About the Book
Since the earliest of city history, Waterville's firefighters have put their lives on the line to protect its citizens from fire, accidents, explosions or natural disasters. Written by Lt. Scott A. Holst on fire department history, this book documents the evolution of city firefighting from the earliest bucket brigades through to the post 911 era. Along the way, it documents the organization improvements and political changes that have made city firefighting significantly more effective.

This book tells the tale of the greatest fires that threatened Waterville, including the rescues and the fatalities. It also includes small biography chapters of the men and women who would become chief officers, or be hired as career personal. It covers every aspect of the department.

Illustrated throughout by black and white photographs of firefighting equipment, memorabilia and notable fire, mostly taken from the Waterville Morning Sentinel newspaper, private collections, and from the Waterville fire departments photographers.
