Description

By Michael R. Glore and Michael J. Kitsock

In 1829, the Humane Hose Company and the Schuylkill Hydraulians Engine Company organized in the booming town of Pottsville, a mining center in Pennsylvania’s anthracite coal region. Fire protection was urgently needed for this growing community. Pottsville Firefighting celebrates one hundred seventy–five years of firefighting in Pottsville.

Book authors, Michael R. Glore and Michael J. Kitsock, combined their love of the volunteer fire service and their years of firefighting experience to narrate this fascinating account.
