History of the Hinesburg Fire Department

What is the Hinesburg Fire Department? What does it stand for?

The Hinesburg Fire Department (HFD) was started by a group of volunteers in 1943. The volunteers wanted to protect their fellow neighbors and friends from the destruction of fires. Because there was no fire department in Hinesburg after some large fires at Economeau Cheese, the owner signed a contract for fire protection with Burlington Fire Department. That contract motivated volunteers to form the Hinesburg Firemen’s Association (Association) which evolved into today's Hinesburg Fire Department.  At that time, the Selectboard appointed Charlie LaBelle as the first Chief.  He served until 1959, at which time Kenneth Mashia was appointed as Chief and served until 1967.
