Chief Dennis Sullivan. An Irish-American from New York state he headed West in the 1870s and joined the legendary Empire & Eagle Hose Companies. San Francisco in the 1870s was still very much a city of fire and gold & the firemen of San Francisco were often the only thing standing between the --mainly wood-- city and absolute destruction. He served the city valiantly for over 30 years eventually rising to the rank of Chief. He died as a result of injuries sustained while attempting to halt the spread of the fire that destroyed much of San Francisco in the wake of the Great Earthquake of 1906.
