History of the Fertile Fire Department

The Fertile Fire Department was organized in 1910. Historical data on the department prior to 1935 are meager and sketchy. The original wooden fire hall and bell tower stood about where the present siren tower stands. Around 1912 this tower blew over. It was then moved to the site of the present fire hall. The present fire siren was purchased in about 1925.
