Department History

In 1909 James C. Palmer, Norman W. Carey, Norman Truitt, Leland Hobbs, and several other members of the Fruitland Community decided they wanted additional fire protection. They formed the Fruitland Vol. Fire Company and James C. Palmer was elected as the first Chief. They started by constructing their first piece of equipment, consisting of a double action pump (with a wooden gear and a two man handle), a 50 gallon barrel, several home made ladders, 2 ½ gallon buckets and 3/4” garden hose.
