HISTORY

January of 1975 discussion was made to look into either buying the Firehouse Foods building or putting up a building out back of the current station. They also considered the possibility of building a new station in Henderson. Then in February the deal on Firehouse Foods fell through. In September, the company bought a 28’ x 60” building and built it behind the existing station to have the tanker and brush truck parked in at a cost of $6,200.00. The next discussion of a purchase was a flashing light in house at the station for the cost of between five and twelve thousand dollars.

In July of 1976, there was a new truck committee formed. In November, the company bought a “1977 International Barton-American Pumper” for the sum of $46,000.00.

Nineteen seventy-eight brought about the fire company’s thirtieth anniversary of which Don Bartlett was chairman of the committee. Evelyn Ross again wrote a poem. Then in January of 1979 the first discussions of a medical assist team began. The county allotment for that year was $12,500.00. Finalization of the first company banquet was done in August of 1979.

In January of 1980 the rescue truck was replaced with a newer truck purchased from Greensboro Volunteer Fire Company for $1,000.00. In September of the same year, the beginning of discussions took place regarding bingo. In October of 1980, the property in which our current fire station is located was purchased.
