The Wintersville Fire Department was organized and chartered in 1941 as part of the Civil Defense. The fire department originally located along Main Street, east of Leonard Avenue. The fire department was incorporated in 1944 as a nonprofit organization for the protection of the community. Members built a fire station on Leonard Avenue. The first truck was purchased in 1944 and delivered in the spring of 1945. In 1951 the department bought its second truck, a 500-gallon pumper with a 500-gallon water tank. In 1954, the department traded in its 1944 truck and bought a new 500 gpm pumper with a 800-gallon water tank, giving the department the capability of carrying 1,300 gallons of water to fires.
