Becoming a volunteer firefighter with the Georgetown Township Fire Protection District may be one of the most rewarding things you ever do.
In the early 1950’s Georgetown did not have an organized fire department to help battle the fires that seem to become more numerous with the use of coal for heating in the mostly wood frame houses. The first firetruck that the town’s people used was a 1927 model that was housed in a one bay block garage located at State Rd. 64 and then Old State Road 64 (Georgetown Greenville Road).
In 1953 a large portion of the downtown area was destroyed by fire. The towns feed mill, grocery stores and one home was lost.
