The Volunteer firemen organized December 10th 1951 with the following officers: Harvey Myers, president; LeRoy Carroll, vice president; Glenn Schall, secretary; and Charles Long, treasure.

Rena Wallace’s Garage was rented for a fire house.  The first new piece of equipment was a 1951 ford truck with a john Bean high pressure outfit at Argenta with a 1937 Chevrolet truck on standby.  At Oreana, a 1951 ford truck with a Howe volume pump outfit.  This truck was stored in a new building erected on A & O Grain Co. ground in Oreana.
