Come along on a 100-year journey from NBFD's humble beginnings on the sand to its emergence as one of Southern California's premier fire departments. Starting with a primitive hose reel and a dozen volunteers in 1911, determined Newport Beach firefighters protected the always tourism-friendly community with more dedication than equipment. In 1927, the volunteers were disbanded and a paid fire department was organized. This book combines historical photos with a narrative that traces the evolution of firefighting in Newport Beach.
