The members of the Galax Volunteer Fire Department take their motto to heart.
“Pride in Our Past, Dedicated to the Future” is emblazoned on signs and trucks, but it’s more than words.
As for the pride in the past, firefighters speak reverently of those who came before, building the organization from a bucket brigade to a fire company in 1912, after much of the city’s wood buildings were destroyed by fire.
