Peninsula: Supes honor Fire Dept on anniversary

The San Mateo County Board of Supervisors honored the Daly City Fire Department on Tuesday for its 100th anniversary. The department was recognized as a historic entity in the aftermath of the 1906 earthquake, in which scores of people migrated south from San Francisco after the disaster.

In 1911, Daily City was incorporated; the fire department was already formed, with 60 hydrants and three 1,000-gallon water tanks installed. In 2003, the department assumed administrative leadership after the formation of the North County Fire Authority, which includes Brisbane and Pacifica.
