 Santa Cruz Fire Department: More Than 100 Years of Service.
"In 1857, the Santa Cruz citizens organized a volunteer fire department and purchased a hand drawn hook and ladder. For reasons unknown, the organization did not last as long as the hook and ladder wagon, which slowly deteriorated when left to the weather. By the 1860's they were no longer a functioning fire company."
