Organization[edit]

Centerton Fire Company was organized August 1st, 1966, and was in a response to a increase of property loss from fire in the area around that time. Only 23 years earlier 2 firefighters would die in a blaze just down the street from where the firehouse now stands. [2] CFC current building was built in 1967 and the first fire truck was stored in the first Fire Chief's barn. In 1982 a second bay was added onto the building.
