The fire call boxes used by the city of Youngstown for the purpose of fire notification and response has a history almost as old as the paid department itself. The primary manufacturer of the city’s fire call boxes was the Gamewell Fire Alarm Company. Call boxes were the primary means of fire alarm notification before telephones were commonplace in homes. Today, they have been replaced by phones, both wired and wireless. This book is an attempt to document the city's fire call boxes system and preserve that information for the future.
