Prospect Park Fire Company No. 1 was organized on March 13, 1895. By the end of May 1895, a fire engine and hook and ladder had been ordered, and a decision was made to install fireplugs in the Borough.
By mid-June 1895, 700 feet of hose with couplings had been purchased for 43 cents a foot. As part of the fire company’s fund raising, 10 children were going door-to-door for contributions.
