Motorized equipment for firemen was unheard of when the Garden City Park Fire Department was organized in March of 1911 with a complement of 23 men and officers. The equipment consisted of a horse drawn combination hook and ladder and bucket brigade.
The district was originally covered by New Hyde Park Fire District until the latter established its eastern boundary at Denton Avenue, shutting out Garden City Park. In 1917, the horses were replaced by a secondhand truck which pulled the same piece of apparatus until 1925. The company then purchased a secondhand pumper from Farmingdale which remained in service until 1927.
