On-Line Collection: Departmental History
The Albany Professional Firefighter was a monthly news letter / magazine published from 1980-1982 by the Albany Permanent Professional Fire Fighters Association (APPFA, Local-2007).
The Albany Fire Department 1963 Annual Report [from the Fire Commissioner to the Mayor and the Common Council] was a very comprehensive itemized list of Departmental responses, salaries, promotions, hiring and retirements. This was obviously before the advent of health care privacy laws. The 1940's era "pneolator" was an Oxygen tank with a demand valve regulator mask.
