The DeVaughn family in the upper photo lost everything in a fire one Saturday afternoon. Their plight was shared by other families and was remedied greatly by the early volunteers who helped to establish a valid response to emergencies and fires. The city of Baldwyn was now getting cutting-edge protection it had never had.
