West Rabun Fire Department History -
Three of a Kind

by Tom Madison

For over 40 years, the three volunteer fire departments, Tallulah Persimmon, Wildcat and Lakes, have provided fire protection for all the Lake Burton property owners as well as nearby neighborhoods.  During those years, as more homes have been constructed, the number of calls has steadily increased.  Today, volunteers to these three stations respond to an average of 300 call outs per year for structure fires, vehicle accidents, medical emergencies, brush fires, and a myriad of other calamities where they are needed.  Often these urgent situations occur late at night, during bad weather, and require the volunteers to leave their families and homes to respond to the needs of others.  Most of the volunteers have full time jobs but are willing to do this as a result of deep-rooted values such as loyalty to their community and service for neighbors that have been instilled in them by their ancestors for generations.  These three Rabun County fire departments were founded during 1976.  At a time when most of the United States was preoccupied with the celebration of the 200th anniversary of the Declaration of Independence, a few bold citizens of the county took the initial steps to create the fledging fire stations.  (Read full article here:  Fire Department History)
