This Site Is Dedicated To Jerry & Chet South
Proudly Serving More Than 50 Years of Active Service

This site is dedicated to our longtime Chaplain C. Powel South and his wife “Jerry”.

“Chet” joined the company in May of 1953 and Jerry joined the Ladies Auxiliary shortly thereafter. Both members have held numerous offices during that time. They continue to be active members (when not in Arizona during the winter months).

Chet and Jerry stand as a symbol of what it truly means to be a “dedicated volunteer” and we would like to express our sincerest appreciation to them for showing us the way.

I have no ambition in this world but one
and that is to be a fireman…

The position may in the eyes of some
appear to be a lowly one…
But those who know the work
which a fireman has to do
believe his is a noble calling…

Our proudest moment is to save lives…
Under the impulse of such thoughts
the nobility of the occupation thrills us
and stimulates us to deeds of daring…

Even of supreme sacrifice…
