"The need for a fire company in Salisbury Mills arose from talk at a ball game, which was being played in town in 1922. The big conversations, which lead to proceedings for a fire company, were about how the railway depot caught fire and burnt down. Through the efforts and hard diligent work by a few faithful men, the company was formed and was well on the way to become a reality in 1923. The first Chief of the Salisbury Mills Fire Company was Mr. John D. Garrison and the first President was Peter Longlow. The company started off with a 1923 American La France as their first truck. It had a five hundred gallon per minute pumper with an open cab, at a cost of ten thousand dollars.

The first drivers of this new truck were George Weber and George Piper..."
