Michigamme’s Steamer Comes Home
In 1900 the community of Michigamme bought a horse drawn steam fire engine. By 1962 it was obsolete and sold. Yet many valued the steamer and its historic beauty, setting off a multi-decade search and effort to bring it home.
Michigamme/Spurr Fire Department Emergency Call 911 The Michigamme Fire Department was organized sometime 1876. In 1995 Michigamme and Spurr Townships combined their fire department.
Tell the emergency operator the location of the emergency right away
provide the emergency operator with your wireless phone number, so if the call gets disconnected, the emergency operator can call you back
911 centers currently lack the technical capability to receive texts, photos and videos
if your wireless phone is not “initialized” (meaning you do not have a contract for service with a wireless service provider), and your emergency call gets disconnected, you must call the emergency operator back because the operator does not have your telephone number and cannot contact you
to help public safety personnel allocate emergency resources, learn and use the designated number in your state for highway accidents or other non life-threatening incidents (Right now Michigan still uses 911 for traffic accidents. Coming soon is 511 which will offer you current traffic, road conditions, detours etc.)
