Delano Fire Company Alarm Card

Very tattered, this old fire call card was lent to us by long-time member,  John Dougherty, who recalls that if the wind were blowing the wrong way,  the original  alarm couldn’t be heard down in the patch.   The old alarm is still on top of the fire house, but hasn’t been powered in ages.   The cards were provided by Fred Flexer, who was an area Funeral Director.
