Over time, professional fire departments evolved and became the preferred means of protection in urban areas. But it wasn’t until 1853 that Cincinnati became the first city in the United States with a fully paid fire department. The model for today’s municipal fire department – skilled, highly trained professionals – was established in urban areas by the late 1800s. Today, there are approximately 300,000 professional firefighters in the United States, most of whom serve in larger cities.
