The Prescott Volunteer Fire Department was formally established on March 3, 1885. The Dudes Hose Company Number 2 was comprised of prominent citizens of Prescott. Their hose cart was located midway down Elks Hill in Prescott, which enabled them to quickly reach fires downhill. Source: Jackson, Eric Conrad: Prescott Fire Department. Arcadia Publishing, 2014.
