BUCKINGHAM COUNTY, Va. (WVIR) -

First responders in Buckingham County were honored on Sunday as they and the community looked back on 50 years of history.

The Glenmore Volunteer Fire Department held an anniversary gathering to recognize first responders.

Pete Agee, who has been with the department since it started, said that working together is what has kept the department going.

“I don’t like to show my authority,” said Agee, who has also been the department’s fire chief for 46 years. “I try to make the right decisions and we’ve been a real good organization and I hope the next 50 years, our younger members will take over and follow our footsteps.”

The event was put on with help from the fire department’s Ladies Auxiliary.
