North Georgetown Volunteer Fire Department (above left), and Brian Baker of the Homeworth Volunteer Fire
Company (above, right) serve jointly as Knox Township Fire Prevention Officers.
On April 12, 1930 the first organized fire department in the township was
implemented in Homeworth with Harry Heffner as Chief. Memberships in the
department were sold to villagers in order to provide the $3,100 needed to
purchase of a Howe Pumper - which they still own today.
