Hydrant Hose CO. No. 1 is dedicated to saving life and property by fighting fires and giving first aid. Hydrant Hose is part of the Geneva Fire department and has been serving Geneva since 1880. Hydrant Hose, together with the department's other two companies, is a well-trained, well-organized veteran fire fighting outfit. It is especially trained in the use of lifesaving equipment such as the inhalator, the pncolater and the proper methods of artifical resuscitation. Many Geneva residents owe their lives to this knowledge and quick action of the firefighters when overcome by smoke, heart attack or other calamity.
