The Burke Volunteer Fire and Rescue Department was incorporated on January 29, 1948 after a group of Burke residents recognized the need for a fire company in the community.
“We are excited to be able to celebrate 75 continuous years of service to the community by our Department. The partnership between the County, the Department, and the local community, who donate generously to the Department, have ensured a significant contribution to saving lives and property. We look forward to continuing this partnership as we recruit the new members who will be the future of this Department.”
-BVFRD President Ian Dickinson
