I am Lieutenant with the Johnson County Fire Protection District in Warrensburg, Missouri. I am also a former resident of Charles County. I went to school at La Plata High School with Tommy Albrittain. The last time I spoke to Tommy was in the late 199o's at Co. 10 in Bel Alton. Tommy was showing off a new apparatus. I was just curious if Tommy was still active with Co. 10.

I have been in the fire service for about twenty years and would like to pay a visit to the company the next time I come back to Charles County.

Our district is headquartered out of Warrensburg, Missouri, with a total of ten stations. I am assigned to station seven where we run one engine company and a tanker along with a brush truck.

Hi guys how are things going. If you do not remember me I stayed there while I was taking my Wildland Firefighter course a couple of years ago. John was chief at the time. Your web page looks good. Thanks again for allowing me to stay there and also run calls with you guys it was great. Be safe out there.

Hello. I was engaged to one of your lifetime members, Ed Barnes and we had 3 children together, Lucy, Natasha and Samantha. Ed passed away Sept 10, 2000 and the children are always proud that their father was a member of Bel Alton VFD. Samantha, the "baby" is now 16 and wants to get a tattoo of Ed's favorite character, Taz in a fire hat and hose with flames and his DOB on one side and smoldering embers on the other, with his DOD. I would like to know if someone there could send me a picture of the helmets you use with Bel Alton and 10 on the front because for the life of me I can't remember what color they were. You can email it to me at the above address with it. Any help will be greatly appreciated.
Great looking site by the way.

I was an active member of Bel Alton VFD from 1973 to 1981 after which I moved to Durham, North Carolina to take a position at Duke University. I served under Chief Tom Spaulding, Cpt. Robertson and ran many a fire call with Larry Graves.

I was proud to serve the Southern Charles County community as a member of your fine organization. While much time has passed since I ran my last fire call, I do remember the brotherhood that existed between all us active members.

I can see from your Web site that you have expanded to include EMS and rescue squad service. Keep up the excellant public service that you provide to all those who live in your first due area.

I was an active member of the Bel alton VFD from June 1973 to June 1982. I left Charles County and relocated to Durham, North Carolina to take a position at Duke University. I remember Chief Tommy Spaulding, Cpt. Billy Robertson and a close friend Larry Graves. I served in the positions of Fire Prevention Officer, Treasurer and the Secretary of the Charles Country Volunteer Firemen's Association.

I loved responding in E-101 - what a fine piece of equipment - and I spent many a run on Tanker - 106 since I had to respond from the far side of 301 down on Chapel Point Rd. Most times I was able to get there in time to catch 106. Hey, how about posting pictures of your officers. Sounds like you now support EMS as well as an engine company.

I sure much has changed there but I bet you don't have a finer group of dedicated, responsive volunteers as there was during the 1973 through 1981 period.

The best to all of you at Bel Alton VFD.

I am now retired and can be found living the Florida lifestyle in University Park, to Sarasota on the West coast.
