#ThisDayInHistory On April 19, 1995, at 9:02 a.m. a 4,800-pound ammonium nitrate–fuel oil bomb exploded in a Ryder truck parked at the north entrance of the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building in downtown Oklahoma City, killing 168 people and injuring approximately 850.
The governor’s office reported that 30 children were orphaned, 219 children lost at least one parent, 462 people were left homeless, and 7,000 people lost their workplace. The City of Oklahoma City’s Final Report estimated property damage to more than 300 buildings in a 48-square-block area. The bombing was the nation’s worst single act of domestic terrorism (superseded in numbers of dead only by the attack on the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001, in New York City). Learn more in “The Encyclopedia of Oklahoma History and Culture”—bit.ly/4-19-1995.
Today, #WeRemember those who were killed, those who survived, and those changed forever by the tragedy on April 19, 1995.

San Francisco Black Firefighters

Today we kick off Black History Month. We like to thank everyone who likes, views or shares our page. Hopefully, this month we can learn a little firefighting history and Black History. But, most importantly Black History is American History! Today we salute Molly Williams.

Molly Williams was the first recorded woman firefighter in the country. Williams worked as a cook in the Oceanus Engine Company firehouse in 1815. She was a slave owned by a New York merchant and was known for years as Volunteer Number 11 at the firehouse. She did back breaking work, showing as much strength and dedication of the men in the bucket brigades.

Williams left a legacy during the blizzard of 1818. When most of the men were down with influenza, Williams the cook was using her own weight to pull the pumper to the fires through the heavy blizzard then filling it with water by the bucket. She would be seen putting out fires in her calico dress and checked apron.

The story of Molly Williams is told in a children’s book called “Molly, By Golly!” by Dianne Ochiltree. Her heroics are also mentioned at the African American Firefighters Museum in Los Angeles.
