This many birthday candles requires a fire department

by The 100 Companies
Pittsburgh Bureau of Fire

As this issue arrives in your inbox, it’s time to say happy 226th birthday to the Pittsburgh Bureau of Fire. A cake with that many candles certainly requires firefighter supervision (if it doesn’t melt first).

Bet you didn’t know:

• Pittsburgh firefighters were the first to unionize in the U.S., making them Local 1 of the International Association of Fire Fighters.

• Pittsburgh Fire Chief Darryl E. Jones has a Ph.D. in public safety.

That’s our story. What’s yours? Contact Dan Stefano or me (link below) and we’ll help share your story in The Pittsburgh 100 or on our podcast!
