RVFD 75 Years

Check out this nice Baynet article on Ridge Volunteer Fire Department (RVFD) celebrating their 75th Installation of Officers (click here.)

As for being around 75 years, here is an excerpt from Joe Cooper’s excellent history of just how the Ridge Fire Department came to be. The following is an excerpt, but to read Joe’s entire article (click here.)

From the RVFD website, this 1975 photo features several of the folks who are also mentioned in The Baynet article cited above.

Of course, Buzzy’s Country Store owes a great deal of gratitude to the RVFD and all the other County Fire Departments that responded to save it from an electrical fire in 1983 (click here for that story.)

Guess it’s time for some George (even if it’s a little unclear just what kind of fires he is talking about putting out.)
