The original building was located behind the Old Sheriff’s Office in the courthouse area. One of the first vehicles was a 1935 Ford fire engine. The emergency crew later split and became two separate organizations Powhatan Volunteer Fire Department Company 1 (central fire company) & Powhatan Volunteer Rescue Squad.
