Melrose Park, IL,  The Melrose Park Fire Department began as a volunteer organization chartered on July 11, 1895 with ten firefighters. They used a two-wheel tank and hose cart with a hand pump that could be drawn by horse or manpower. At the time of a fire signal, the first person there with a horse received $5. It wasn't until 1913 that the Department got its first motorized fire vehicle.

The first officers of the department were Fire Marshal Gustav Klug, Captain Andrew McAuley and Lieutenant Ernest Bailey, In 1932, Anthony Prignano was appointed Melrose Park’s first fire chief.

Chief Prignano served for 35 years and guided the department’s growth from a small, but dedicated, volunteer brigade to a department staffed by equally dedicated, fulltime firefighters. At the time of his retirement, Chief Prignano was the longest serving Fire Chief in Illinois’ history.
