On-Line Collection: Miscellaneous

Not every artifact can easily be classified.  Some items, for example, may have not originally been issued by the Department, but have become accepted by AFD as expressions of Departmental pride, such as specialized badges, shields, patches, awards, flags, etc., for a particular member, platoon, company or battalion.  Others, such as manuals, orders, or guidelines provide insight into the operation of the Department.

The 1966 Albany Fire Department Manual of Radio Communications was an early attempt to standardize communications within the AFD.  The new radios were not necessarily quick: "Radio Units require a 30-second warm-up before Transmitting."
