History of Firefighting

Firefighting has a long and illustrious history that dates all the way back to ancient Egypt when people utilized water pumps to put out raging flames. However, Crassus established the first formal fire brigades in third-century Rome, albeit they weren’t the honorable men we know today.

If property owners refused to agree to sell their properties to Crassus for pennies on the dollar, Roman brigades would use flames as a threat to evict them by letting structures burn. Fortunately, Emperor Nero afterward established the Vigiles to institutionalize firemen in a way that was considerably more moral.

The Vigiles, a type of combined fire and police force that patrolled Rome’s streets would line up at the closest water supply and carry buckets back and forth to put out fires as necessary.

For a long time after the Vigiles were established, firefighting remained primitive. But devastating fires that swept across Europe in the 17th century forced all Western governments to reconsider the inadequate capabilities of firemen.

Two square miles of London were burnt in the Great Fire of London in 1666, which also left thousands of people homeless and the economy in ruins.

The first fire hose was created by Dutchman Jan Van der Heyden shortly after 1673, which helped modernize the industry and give rise to the first recognized fire companies.

The Firefighting Tradition

A firefighter works hard to help people when they are in trouble. Not only do they put out fires, but they also try to stop other disasters from taking too many lives or destroying too much property.

Firefighters also help save people during earthquakes, tornadoes, floods, and snow storms, among other disasters. As their careers go on, each member may be trained to take on a wider range of tasks.

Each of these responsibilities shows how dedicated they are to helping and saving their neighbors and the rest of the community. With this commitment to service, a firefighter promotes a few values that will help other people in the community stop disasters from happening or stop them from happening in the first place.

Firefighters also have to deal with a lot of risks on the job. Some of these risks include the chance of a building falling down, getting too hot, and getting heart and lung diseases.

Putting their own lives at risk while on duty shows how much they care about helping other people. Check out the to see what some of our country’s bravest people are doing in and out of the Station House.

What is a challenge coin for firefighters?


A gratitude gift presented to firemen is a firefighting coin, which is similar to the traditional military coin. They are made utilizing symbols and iconography unique to their profession, such as the Maltese cross, ladders, hooks, helmets, and bugles, among other things.

Although bespoke fire coins often include these conventional images, more and more fire chiefs are choosing to think beyond the box.

Custom-cut coins with designs using a shift’s chosen mascot or motto are in high demand, as are coins cut to the contours of the Maltese cross (no pun intended).

Numerous people are also minting coins for each fire engine at the firehouse, utilizing a similar pattern on all of them while experimenting with various color schemes or other design elements to set them apart from one another.
