St. Anthony Vol. Fire Department
Our History
In 1963, Lawrence Hasenour, local business owner and philanthropist recognized the need for a community fire department to protect St. Anthony, St. Marks, Bretzville and all of Jackson Township. Walking thru his business, Hasenour Motor Company, Lawrence recruited the first firefighters and also made arrangement to provide 2 garage bays in the St. Anthony Community Center to house the newly-formed department. On September 4, 1963, the Fire Department was incorporated in the state of Indiana and in 2013, celebrated 50 years as a Fire Department.
