    From what I can find the SL County Fire Department was formed on November 21, 1921, and initially consisted of volunteers. Later it became a full-time force, but I can’t locate that date. If I want to know more it looks like I can find a host of archival material including a history of the SL County Fire Department at the County Archives. Yay County Archives!
