03/30/08 107 W - + 11 - 12 City of Raleigh Code of Ordinances

Here's an interesting site, the Code of Ordinances for the city of Raleigh. Observe some of the older language in the Fire Protection and Prevention section. There's over 150 years of history behind those ordinances and their objectives. On the role of the Fire Chief: "During fires and inspections [they] shall control all fireplugs, maintain order among the firefighters, and do all things proper for the efficient operation of the department." On fire alarm equipment: "It shall be unlawful for any person to interfere with the fire alarm telegraph or the poles, wires, fire-police emergency boxes, or other apparatus." And so on.
