Speaking of St. Augustine School, insurance maps in 1909 listed the school as having a fire department equipped with a hose reel and 500 feet of 2 1/2-inch cotton rubber-lined hose along with two fire extinguishers and two dozen fire buckets. The hose house was attached to a lumber building just east of the Lyman Building. By 1914, the fire department had relocated to a combination hose and coal house just north of the Lymen Building. The school's equipment consisted of three hand hose carts, 1,200 feet of 2 1/2-inch hose, and one hand ladder truck, and fire pails.
