12 Days of Firemen - Day 2

With over a hundred answers to Day 1's Trivia Question, this party is off to a rocking start! Click here to join the fun on my Facebook page. Here are the winners of Day 1:

Dawn B - correct answer
Karen H - creative answer

And now, here's the Trivia Question for Day 2:

When was the first fire department in America formed and who created it? Bonus points if you know the city.

As always, research is allowed. And as always, I'll award a prize for one correct answer and one creative answer (randomly selected.)

I'm so excited about the prize for this one! The Charleston Fire Department puts out a yearly calendar to benefit the Charleston Animal Society, so not only do we get our sexy firemen, but some adorable pets too. One winner with a correct answer will receive a 2014 calendar. 


The creative answer will receive a Bachelor Fireman gift pack. You have until 10am EST tomorrow to leave your answer(s), either here or on my Facebook page. Have fun!!

  2. 1621 by the Pilgrims when they tried to put out the first Thanksgiving fire in Plymouth

  3. In 1736 Ben Franklin started the very first Fire Dept called the Union Fire Company.

    The first full time "paid" fireman started on April 1st of 1853 in Cincinnati Ohio when the first professional fire department was made up of 100% full-time, paid employees.
    A great giveaway. I love those pics. :)
    Happy Holidays everyone.
