To Officers and Members,
San Francisco Fire Department.

Every member of the Fire Department not having a tapper in service at the place where he takes his meals, shall at once, at his own expense, provide himself with one, of a type approved by the Department of Electricity, and such tapper will then be installed by the Department of Electricity without charge, except as hereinafter provided:

Should a member change his residence, except through unavoidable cause, within one year after the installation of his tapper, he shall defray the cost of re-installing the same at his new residence.

When members take their meals at a restaurant, boarding house, or other public place, the regular charges for installation and maintenance of tappers, as provided by Ordinance of the Board of Supervisors, shall be paid by such members, pro rata, unless the proprietor agrees to to assume the charges.

Battalion Chiefs are instructed to see that this Order is carried out in their respective districts.

By Order,

Dennis T. Sullivan
Chief of Department

Approved by the Board of Fire
Commissioners, August 18, 1905
