Disneyland Fire Dept. Insurance

This plaque in New Orleans Square reflects the fire protection services available in America at the turn of the previous century. Well before municipal fire departments provided fire protection to all citizens, building owners would pay for fire insurance and in turn receive a plaque similar to the one above. In the event of a fire, the responding fire brigade would check to see if the building was adorned with a plaque and, if so, they would proceed to put out the fire.
