Information about the Company
The Library Volunteer Fire Company Website
The Library Volunteer Fire Company was organized in October 1939 and was comprised of 21 firefighters and one truck housed at the corner of Brownsville and Library Road. Presently, the company is located at 6581 Library Road and houses the following vehicles: 2005 Pierce Quantum Rescue Pumper, 2010 Chevy Tahoe used as a command vehicle, 2005 Chevy Surburban which is a squad vehicle, 1999 Pierce Pumper, and a 2012 Ford F-250 which is a utility vehicle.
The Fire Company’s roster consists of over 30 members and we have a Junior Firefighter Program. Currently, there are 4 members enrolled in the Junior Firefighter Program. Our firefighters are all trained professionals and are capable of handling any situation that they may be put in. While the company’s main function is to protect the citizens and their property, we also provide a wide range of services to the community such as fire prevention accident extrications, Fire Company visits and home safety inspections. In June of 2006, the Library Volunteer Fire Company changed their status to a combination Fire Company. We currently staff a daytime Firefighter/Driver from 07:30-16:30 hrs. All costs associated with this staffing are paid for through the Library Volunteer Fire Company.
The Fire Company’s main sources of income are an annual collection drive and our weekly bingos. The Library Volunteer Fire Company holds bingo on Wednesday evening beginning at 7:15 p.m. We also rent a newly renovated social hall which seats approximately 400 people, catering is also available from our own caterer: Cyd West Comfort Catering.
