The Hartford Fire Department officially dates its organization to 1864 when The Board of Fire Commissioners was founded and established control over all appointments in the Department.

Prior to 1864 Hartford's fire protection was volunteer. The volunteer Fire Service was served by merchants and all citizens. These neighbors would, upon need, drop what ever they were doing and run to fight a fire and aid their fellow citizens.
Residents pulled the "engines" and hose carts. Often as many as forty persons were needed to pull one apparatus.

The City's early fire fighters were sponsored by Hartford's Insurance Industry. These companies paid special premiums to the first and second fire engines arriving at a fire. In addition the "City" paid a dollar to any person who rang a church bell for a fire.

In 1876 the Hartford Fire Department became the first to own a steam-driven, self propelled fire Engine. "Blak(sic) Seven" weighed between five and six tons, cost $5,000 dollars and pumped 700 gallons per minute. It served the city for almost 40 years.

The Hartford Engine 7 is one of five Ferrara engines operated by the city, and was the last one received. It is assigned to the Northeast Station, Engine Co. 7, located at 181 Clark Street.

Hartford Engine 7 is a 2005 Ferrara Inferno
The Engine boasts
* 1500 gpm pump
* 500 gallon water tank
* 40 gallons of foam.
