The Breslau Feuer Wehr was organized on November 29, 1877. (In German, a “feuerwehr” is a fire department; feuer = fire, wehr = defend.)
In 1882, the Feuer Wehr reorganized as Breslau Engine Company No. 1. In 1885, the Breslau Engine Company joined with Liberty Hose Company No. 1 and Union Hook and Ladder Company No. 1, to form the Breslau Fire Department. In 1891, the Breslau community changed its name to Lindenhurst. However, the fire department did not adopt the name Lindenhurst until 1909.
