As the Plano Public Library Genealogy Center has been transcribing the Plano Fire Department minutes from 1940-1955, it has discovered the department wanted an Iron Lung for emergencies in 1947. The Iron Lung would be used for the Plano community for transporting a polio victim to the hospital.

On February 4, 1947 the Plano Fire Department had a demonstration of the Iron Lung by Mr. W. T. Nickerson of Dallas. He “gave a very interesting and instructive demonstration with an iron lung. Dr. Thompson attended the demonstration”. The Plano Fire Department met in a special called meeting on Monday night February 17th for the purpose of selecting a committee to solicit funds from the merchants of Plano to purchase an Iron Lung for the community of Plano. After some discussion, Chief Standifer appointed Homer Horton as chairman. His assistance helped to solicit the necessary funds to purchase the Iron Lung as soon as possible. Fireman Horton had help from E. J. Baxter, R. B. Howey, and Dr. O. T. Mitchell to solicit the money.Iron Lung and firemen

On March 4th, the Department was drilled on how to operate Iron Lung. Each member took part in a drill. During the meeting, Chairman Homer Horton of the Iron Lung committee reported that all the necessary funds had been obtained, $1,209, to purchase the Iron Lung for the community of Plano. The money had been turned over to the secretary with a list of the names of donor’s and amount given. It was requested that donor’s name and amount to be written into the minute book of the Department. He said the full amount was obtained by the committee in about 6 hours from the Plano community.

Fire Dept Ledger 1940 - 1956-0118

The Plano Star Courier is not available for 1947. The minutes of the Fire Department is the only way we know of this wonderful contribution the people of Plano made to help acquire the Iron Lung to be used for emergencies. They raised more than $1209. They spent $27 to buy large rubber bands for the iron lung. (The extra money was probably used to purchase the rubber bands. The large rubber sealers were used on the iron lung.) Following the purchase of the Iron Lung, the department was drilled often on using it. During one of the practice sessions the Boy Scouts of America in Plano were allowed to attend and learn about the iron lung.

Be sure to check the Collin County Images, Plano Fire Department Collection –https://glhtadigital.contentdm.oclc.org/digital/collection/p15915coll21, as we add historical photographs and documents throughout the year.  The items will cover the Volunteer Fire Department and when it became the official city department.
