Cassian Volunteer Fire Department
Realizing the need for fire protection, the citizens of Cassian took it upon themselves to form a volunteer fire department. The organizational meeting was held on January 11, 1965 with 15 interested volunteers and a used fire truck obtained from the Town of Hazelhurst. The service area is comprised of rural farming, residential, business and seasonal homes. A community of approximately 68 square miles with a current population of about 1,100 full time residents with a mixture of families, retirees, and seasonal residents Being a rural area interfaced with large forested areas and little urban development, we have the threat of numerous wild land fires, also with US Highway 51 going thru the Town from north to south, and County Highway K as our southern boundary, we face the potential of a number of vehicle accidents requiring our services.
NEW MEMBERS ARE ALWAYS WELCOME AND NEEDED!
