Regarding Tombstone Engine Co. No. 1. The Tombstone Volunteer Fire Department had a dual function of putting out fires and serving as one of the more elite social clubs of the community. Fancy uniforms were the order of the day, but not all was pump and splendor. Firefighters were sometimes called upon to risk their lives for the city. On June 23, 1882, the Tombstone Epitaph acknowledged receipt of $180.00".., to provide medicines and necessaries for firemen wounded in the late flames."
