Abstract

The work is a history that used both secondary and primary sources. The bulk of the historical information on national insurance and fire service history was based on secondary sources while the local perspective is almost solely based on interviews National agencies and departments faced problems in the 1800’s that are still faced by rural Mississippi institutions; however these institutions are taking steps to try and prevent the catastrophes of the mid 1800’s. In doing so the fire departments are answering some of the problems of the urban volunteers of the 19th century while the Insurance companies are creating a new set of questions.
