Regarding Reliance Hose Company No. 3.
Also see . . . Grass Valley Fire Department. The city website gives a short history of the department stating that The Grass Valley Fire Department was first organized in 1853 with the establishment of the Grass Valley Hook and Ladder Company. The department was formed as a total volunteer organization and at its height had four fire companies and 100 volunteer firefighters It is the third oldest active fire department West of the Mississippi River. In 1855 the city passed an ordinance proclaiming that every property owner shall provide 50 gallons of water and four buckets for each floor level they owned. This Ordinance was not too successful as the town of Grass Valley was destroyed by fire in 1855. (Submitted on November 16, 2011.)
