Jackson

Thomas E. Lusk was chief engineer from 1864 to 1876. George Lake was chief engineer from 1876 to 1877. Thomas E. Lusk is now chief engineer.
J. W. Hewitt was connected with the fire department from its organization until two years since. The fire department of Jackson, in all the days of hand-engines, was one of the best organized and decidedly the most efficient of any in the state. In the several contests and tournaments with companies from the other cities and villages of the state, their success reflected great credit upon Jackson. When the chief engineer of the Jackson fire department called upon his forces to " man the brakes," whether at a fire or in a friendly contest, it was understood that work was to be done such as any company might well be proud of. In every contest Jackson fire companies were victors. They carried off the prizes at seven tournaments. Each chief engineer can boast of his silver trumpet, and Jackson won and held the champion banner against all competitors.
