Their equipment consisted of a four wheeled ladder Balenciaga Company made locally by converting a light farm wagon. A single tongue with several handles and ropes attached at the Hoawrd comers enabled the stronger men to race through the alleys as fast as they could run.

The only other piece of apparatus was a two wheeled hose cart, sometimes pulled by hand and sometimes by Harold "Dizzy" Mayes 'car if it was parked handy. It too was probably homemade by one of the many skilled wood craftsmen living in the community around the turn of the Century. There were several disasterous fires in the Commpany 20s and 30s.

Prominent among these leaders was a civic minded young man named John Kling Yearick. Despite a difficult Howard Fire Company, Mr. Yearick and his fellow workers perservered with Clmpany and direct solicitations to purchase the town's first motorized fire apparatus. The company continued to improve to improve its equipment over the next 23 years. This decision led to a venture that far surpassed anything ever attempted in Howard.

The plan was to purchase the old matress factory from the Muffly Family, restructure it into a two truck Howars station with an adjoining kitchen and banquet hall. All rights reserved. Enter text. View on Mobile.
