In 1941, the town of Shelburne built a fire station to house their newly-ordered 1941 Buffalo pumper. While much of the department’s early history is shrouded in mystery as no records were kept before its reorganization December 3, 1942.” So began a brief piece about the Shelburne Volunteer Fire Department in a booklet published in conjunction with the Shelburne Museum for Shelburne’s bicentennial in 1963. Were it not for entries in the annual town reports and the occasional remembrance from a long-time resident, we in the twenty-first century would know nothing about our local firefighters before WWII.Like many small communities, Shelburne residents likely relied upon the help of neighbors, the “bucket brigade,” to fight fires in the early days.

We’re Turning 75!

The Shelburne Volunteer Fire Department will be celebrating its 75th anniversary on August 27th 2016 at 2:00PM. There will be a parade in the center of town that will include antique fire trucks from around northern Vermont, the Rice High School marching band, and Shelburne’s newly restored 1941 Buffalo Pumper. The Shelburne-Charlotte Rotary club will provide hot dogs and other refreshments at the Shelburne Fire Station immediately following the parade,

“Old E1” our 1941 GMC/Buffalo Fire Truck is actively being restored by our firefighters. While we have received many generous donations from the community, funds are still need to complete the project. We need your help to raise the additional funds needed to complete the restoration of this historic piece of fire apparatus.
