The Aumsville Volunteer Fire Department was first organized in the early 1930s with a crew of volunteer citizens. The Fire Chief at that time was Sam Weis. The first equipment on had was two soda and Acid tanks mounted on a hand-cart and the members pulled it by hand to the scene of the fire.
In 1937 the first vehicle was purchased. It was a 1934 Chevrolet truck on which a pump and storage tanks were installed by the late D.L. Eastburn in his machine shop.
The Aumsville Volunteer Fire Department became a special district in 1942, and the City of Aumsville contracted with the district to provide fire protection services...
