The Crosbyton Volunteer Fire Department has a long history that is reflected in its membership. Many families in Crosbyton have had two or three generations be a part of the Crosbyton VFD. Today, the Crosbyton Volunteer Fire Department is one of the best volunteer departments on the plains. In the severe drought year of 2011, the VFD not only kept the town of Crosbyton safe from the raging grass but also assisted in Garza, Dickens, Motley, and Floyd counties. Their commitment and experience make them one of the first fire departments called to the scene. Led by Fire Chief Jim Justus, the department meets every Monday night for business, training, and fellowship.
Today, the Crosbyton VFD has embarked upon a restoration project. The department still owns at 1925 Seagraves Fire Engine. The VFD is raising money to have the engine restored and running for parades and events in Crosbyton. The fund for the restoration is at Citizens National Bank in Crosbyton. Parties interested in becoming a volunteer fireman should contact Jim Justus.
