50 Years of Service to the Region

Philomont Volunteer Fire Company
50 years of Dedicated Service
1956-2006 and beyond!
50 years ago the Philomont Volunteer Fire Department placed a 1956 FWD pumper in service and so began the legend of the WEST END 8.

September 23, 2006 was a day of history, celebration, reflection, and appreciation.

"Enjoy them, treasure the memories, remember where you came from, and how you got to where you are...it will help you get to where you are going."

"I don't know what tomorrow holds - but I know who holds tomorrow!"
