These commemorative books are numbered as they are sold with a printed personal note from the author.
A portion of the proceeds benefits the Chesterfield Fire and EMS Memorial, don't delay - order now!
Chesterfield County was formed in 1749 but it was not until 1928 that the first volunteer fire department was organized.
Twelve more independent volunteer fire departments followed in the years to come.
These departments formed the foundation for what would later become the Chesterfield County Fire Department.
This book chronicles their organization and growth in those early years.
It also describes how they would come together in forming the Association of Chesterfield Fire Departments.
Read how this group’s efforts truly improved fire protection in the county and started the process of becoming one department.
Pictures, many never before published, capture much of this history and illustrate some of Chesterfield Fire Department’s “firsts”.
