History of the Long Beach Fire Department

The city of Long Beach was incorporated in 1897, and shortly thereafter, a group of citizens formed the first Volunteer Fire Department and elected Brewster C. Kenyon as Captain. After a 1905 fire destroyed the Long Beach Pavilion, a $30,000 bond was issued by popular vote to build a central fire station as well as provide equipment, including fire alarm boxes, a steam fire engine, a hose wagon, and a hook and ladder truck, as well as a team of horses to pull the newly purchased trucks.
In 1906, the first official fire station (Station No. 1) was built at 210 West Third Street. The department was headed by Chief Joseph E. Shrewsbury and Assistant Chief George Craw, with a few men hired to be trained as firemen. The regular firemen were assisted by "Call Firemen," who would be paid per fire fought. In 1907, the department purchased its first motorized fire trucks. In 1908, Station No. 2 and Station No. 3 were opened, and Station No. 4 was opened in 1910. In 1916, Chief Shrewsbury was killed in an automobile accident while responding to a fire call (which ultimately turned out to be a false alarm), and George Craw replaced him as the city's second Fire Chief.
In 1917, in response to the city's growing population and the increase in the number of fires, the Fire Prevention Bureau was established. In 1920, the department hired additional full-time personnel and ground was broken on two additional fire stations, Station No. 5 and Station No. 6. Between 1924 and 1929, and additional six stations were built throughout the city.
Oil was discovered in the Signal Hill area of Long Beach in 1921, and the oil industry swiftly descended on the city to begin drilling operations. The early oil fields were extremely dangerous places. Due to a general disregard for safety, and the fact that oil derricks were built using wood, the oil fields were particularly susceptible to fires. The first major oil fire occurred at the Fisher refinery in 1924, which was followed by the Alamitos fire in 1927.
On March 10, 1933, a 6.3 earthquake occurred, within an epicenter located a few miles off shore from Newport Beach. This devastated Long Beach and many surrounding cities. Several fire stations (Stations No. 1, 5, 7, and 9), along with many other buildings including Polytechnic High School, were destroyed in the quake, and a few firemen died as a result of injuries sustained. Another major oil fire, the Richfield Oil Refinery fire, occurred in June of that year, and was most likely caused by residual damage from the March earthquake.
Following the earthquake, the city went to work building new stations to replace those destroyed, as well as adding additional fire stations and increasing the number of personnel employed by the department. In 1938, the department moved to install "Talk Alarm" receivers in various stations, which greatly increased the effectiveness of the department by allowing identical information to be received in all stations, thus reducing errors in responding to the wrong address on alarms. In 1942, the city acquired its first fire boat, the "Charles S. Windham." The decision to invest in fire boats proved a good one in December 1945, when a large fire took place on Pier 1 at Berths 51, 52, 53, and 54. The fire, which was the most disastrous in the city's history, burned for several days, though fortunately no casualties were recorded. In 1964, a new drill tower and Fire College opened to train the many new fire fighters needed to service the expanding city.
The Long Beach Fireman's Historical Museum was founded in 1980 by Herb Bramley to document the history of fire fighters in Long Beach and to restore historic fire engines. The museum is currently housed in the building which originally housed Fire Station No. 10, and also contains an extensive collection of fire fighter's tools and equipment, as well as log books used by the department throughout its history.

Scope and Content

The Long Beach Fireman's Historical Museum Photographs Collection consists primarily of negatives documenting the Long Beach Fire Department's history and activities from 1906 to the early 1970s. The negatives are primarily 4x5" black and white film, through there are some negatives of additional size, including 5x7", 2½x2½", 3½x5½", and 35mm, mostly black and white with a few color negatives. There is also a collection of photographic prints, which document both the history of the Long Beach Fire Department, as well as some of the early history of the city of Long Beach. These photographs are of varying size, with the majority being 8x10" prints.
The negatives are arranged numerically, and are primarily in chronological order. The negatives are all filed under serial numbers originally assigned by the Long Beach Fire Department, and those numbers have largely been retained in the collection. The serial number is followed by digits representing the number of negatives and prints which are included per set. Each group of negatives is housed within one or more acid-free envelopes, and negatives which have been digitally scanned are housed separately from those which have not been scanned. Scanned negatives are indicated by an "S" on the envelope. There is a small collection of nitrate-based negatives, which are stored separately from the general collection due to their inherent instability.
Photographic prints have been arranged topically, and were assigned an inventory number during processing. Digitally scanned prints are housed separately from unscanned prints. Those prints that are copies of negatives in the collection are housed in two additional boxes, and their inventory numbers correspond to the serial numbers of the negatives from which they were printed.
The Fire Museum maintains prints from the original negatives and a great deal of scrapbooks.
The collection is separated into 15 series: Apparatus, Car Collisions & Traffic Accidents, City Departments, Drill School & Demonstrations, Fire Prevention, Fire Stations, Fires, Funerals, Ladies Auxiliary, Miscellaneous, Mutual Benefit & Union, Parades & Publicity, Personnel, Site Inspections, and Tests. The series were assigned according to the Long Beach Fire Department's subject index ledger, and negatives and prints which were not assigned a series designation in this ledger were assigned one during processing which corresponds to the Fire Department's series descriptions.
Aside from providing insight into the history of fire fighting in Long Beach, this collection explores the evolution of life in Southern California from the early 1900s through the 1970s. In documenting the activities of the fire department, the photographs in this collection also documents the people residing in the city of Long Beach: the homes they lived in, the cars they drove, the businesses they established, and their general way of life. In addition, the collection provides pictorial evidence of the human impact on the environment in the city of Long Beach, particularly as it pertains to the oil industry, which was a major influence on the growth and development of the city. Some striking photographs of the sea of oil derricks blanketing the landscape of Long Beach can be viewed in this collection.
