In the early 1870s, the United States experienced two of the largest fires in the country’s history, the Chicago Fire and the Boston Fire, which killed hundreds and destroyed many buildings. These events have prompted an increased focus on training and education of firefighters. In particular, by the end of the 19th century, training centers for firefighters were established in most major cities, and in 1909 the Firefighter College opened in New York.
With the advent of a large number of cars in the United States, they began to be used for a large number of tasks, including for performing the fire service. The vehicles have made it possible to reduce the response time to incoming fire alarms, and the efficiency of fighting fires has increased. In addition to performing the tasks of fire protection in cities, fire engines were used to protect warehouses, airfields and army camps from fire.
