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 in 2016. In preparation for this historic event, the firefighters of the Fire Department and Shelburne Firefighters Association are looking to restore the 1941 GMC/Buffalo Fire Truck.

While “Old E1” is good running condition, the fire engine needs significant bodywork along with new paint.  We have received estimates that place this up to $30, 000.00.

A considerable amount of work will be done by the firefighters but we need your help to raise the funds needed to restore this historic piece of fire apparatus.
