The History of Collierville Fire & Rescue

According to Clarene Russell's book Collierville,Tennessee Her People and Neighbors, the 1893 Sanborn-Perrin map lists Collierville as having an Independent Hose Cart, which meant there was a volunteer fire department. Thanks to the foresight of founding fire department leadership, we're fortunate to have a treasure of historic documents.
