Joker System and In and Out board

In 1926 a punch-tape system was installed in the Fair Park Fire Station to alert the companies to fires. This system was a Gamewell "Joker System". The system could not identify company numbers that ended in "0", so several station had to be renumbered. The Fair Park Fire Station became known as Station # 5 and the old "In & Out" boards that kept up with the companies status were discontinued.
