On February 14, 1952, there was a meeting conducted by the Floyd Citizens to establish a Fire Protection group in order to protect the property of the community.  It was deemed highly necessary as there had been several fires in the past and the community had no organized method of fighting the fires.  Discussion was carried on by Harold Parker and a motion made by I.D. (Panny) Bigler that officers be elected to expedite the organization of a fire department.  Seconded by Joe McClure and the motion carried.  Nominations were opened for fire chief, Ramsey Groves was elected.  The motion were made to elect Joe McClure as assistant fire chief by acclamation and the motion carried. Nominations were made for the Secretary Treasurer and Katherine Buzard as elected into this position.  At that time, there were 17 volunteers for the department.  A committee was appointed to check on available fire fighting equipment, and there was also a committee to raise funds to support the organization.
