In 1942 a group of citizens in what was then the northern end of Princess Anne County began to recognize the need for fire protection. And so it was that in 1943 the Davis Corner Auxiliary Fire Department came into being.
The first fire truck was a Dodge truck purchased for $500.00 from the Richmond Army Base. It was outfitted with a Chrysler engine, a Hale pump, and a 500-gallon water tank. The truck was parked at the restaurant of John Marr, who was a Charter Member. (Now B&F Tire Company at 5548 Virginia Beach Blvd.)
For a long time the volunteers did not have a centralized method of receiving and dispatching calls. A list of members, in the order they were to be called, was distributed throughout the community.
If someone had a fire they were to call the first firefighter on the list, working down the list if there was no answer. Eventually, an outside siren was installed that alerted the firemen when a call came in.
Sometime before 1955 the rescue aspect was added to Davis Corner. In August 1962, we became Davis Corner Volunteer Fire Department, Inc.
And in April 1968, a second charter as Davis Corner Volunteer Rescue Squad, Inc. was added. These 2 charters were merged into one in November 1978, when we became Davis Corner Volunteer Fire Department and Rescue Squad, Inc.
In July 1979, Davis Corner moved from 316 Davis St. to it’s present location at 4672 Haygood Rd.
Davis Corner currently maintains 3 ALS ambulances to provide Emergency Medical Services to the community.
