A book on Burlington Firefighting is by Historical Commission member, Toni Faria, with the support of the Historical Commission and the Fire Department. It was printed by Arcadia Publishing early in 2008.
The book begins with the story of local volunteer fire fighters in 1907, who banded together to protect their homes and farms. By 1955 the social and economic changes brought the need for a full time department. The present department has kept up with the rapid growth and changes of the town, and has created todays' professional and well trained department .
The book is part of the Aradia Press series, Images of America. A prerequisite of at least 200 photographs were needed for the book. Retired fire fighters as well as the present firefighters have donated photographs.
