Walkersville Volunteer Fire Company
Business Category
Long Business Description

Fire protection for the Town of Walkersville began in 1909 with the formation of the Walkersville Water Company and in coordination with installation of water lines and hydrants was the Walkersville Hose Company and a hand drawn hose reel.

The minutes of December 12, 1927 of the Walkersville Hose Company (unincorporated) show that T.R. Saylor was President and Captain was Clyde Fogle. A re-organization was effected in 1939 and the result in 1940 was the incorporation of the Walkersville Volunteer Fire Co., Inc. During incorporation in 1940, T.R. Saylor was elected President and Fire Chief was Luther Horine, Sr.

The first carnival was held in 1940 to raise funds for the a motorized fire engine. The net profit was approximately $750. The company purchased a 1940 Ford piston-type pumper carrying 300 gallons of water at a cost of about $4,000. The original 1940 Ford fire engine has been restored and is on display in the front of the fire hall.

The tradition of “blue fire apparatus” continues from 1940 until today. This blue has set the standard and us apart from all other fire companies in Frederick County.
