MPR Fire Department History
The Morgan’s Point Resort Fire Department was founded in 1974 by Mr. Luther J. Reynolds as an all-Volunteer Department along with other concerned citizens of the community. The department started with one truck and five members. Over the years, the department grew with City. The Volunteers held many fundraisers to purchase needed equipment. The department remained All Volunteer until May of 2005 when the City hired the first paid Chief, Billy Richards. Chief Richards took over the department with ten active members. He began a recruiting drive to bring more members into the volunteer program. As membership grew, the emphasis was turned toward the EMS First Responders and their training. Today, the department consists of volunteers and paid firefighters that continue to support our great city.
“We rely a great deal upon the generosity of the community to maintain excellence in service, opportunities that would not have been possible without charitable contributions. My humble and sincere thanks for your continued support!” ~ Taran Vaszocz-Williams, Fire Chief
