Supervisors sent* two .registrars

Volunteer Fire Company
Observes Anniversary
There was a time when the
Tuxedo-Cheveriy Volunteer Fire
Company consisted of one ancient
Ford pumper with a distinct
cough in Its motor and 10 fire
men with a distinct sense of pub
lic duty in their hearts.
That same fire company today,
28 years later, to a first-class
organisation of over 86 men with
modern equipment that can cope
with any blase in their area.
Saturday to the company's 26th
anniversary. The occasion will
be observed with a parade, dem
onstration of fire fighting, and
fire prevention exhibits. Twenty-,
five pieces of equipment from
several other companies will be
on display.
Three Pumpers
Included among these 28 en
gines will be the three big pump
er, from Tuxedo-Cheveriy com
pany. One of them has a 1,000-
gallon capacity and three to
gether are worth about 140,000.
An 810,800 rescue truck to sched
uled for delivery next month.
But times haven't always been
prosperous with the company. It
was only a few years ago that
members were digging into their
own pockets for change to keep
gasoline In their fire trucks. That
was before Prince Georges
County started levying special
fire taxes, so the only way the
men could keep the equipment
rolling was by going around the
neighborhood, hat in hand/
soliciting nickels, dimes, quar
ters and an occasional dollar.
Even with the fire tax the com
pany has to out corners the
members themselves built the
' present brick firehouse.
104 Fire, Per Tear
The company averages about <
300 fires a year, but there's i
much more to do than fight fires.:
Sometimes it’s school every \
active member has completed
the basic fire fighting course
offered at the University of
Then there are the usual cats :
in trees and little boys locked;
in bathrooms. During Hurricane i
Haael in October. 1084. the com
pany kept the Prince Oeorgee (
Hospital lighted with Its portable
generator. ,
The Tuxedo-Cheveriy men are ;
in the "emergency" business—]
Just name it, and they can
handle it.
The company has won 30 1
trophies in two years. State Farm:
Mutual Insurance Co. has given
a "B” rating to Tuxedo-Cheveriy. I
and that's the highest possible i
) rating a volunteer company can
; earn.
i t The company proudly claims
; that it can get equipment en
■ route to a fire in about a minute
- and a half—even if there is no
complete crew at the firehouse.
This to accomplished by an
i unusual communications system
i of their own invention. In the
i station, a microphone to placed
in front of the county fire board

I Pipes the calls directly to the
, homes of all members. Pop may
[be giving the baby his 2 am.
but if a call comet in.
'Mama takes over with Junior.

folks will turn out to say th*nk«

have been saving house*, oats,
