As a pair of 14-year-olds, Dale L. Koglin and Steven A. Ross joined the Warrenton Volunteer Fire Co. in June 1963.

A half-century later, the 64-year-old volunteers still respond to emergencies.

The board of supervisors last Thursday honored Mr. Koglin and Mr. Ross with proclamations for their service to the community.

“As a firefighter myself, I’m humbled to be standing with 100 years of service,” said Supervisor Chris Granger (Center District), a captain in Prince William County’s career emergency services department. “It’s unbelievable . . . . They’re still running calls.

“This is 50 active years,” Mr. Granger continued. “This is not 50 years on the books. These guys get up every night and run calls.”

Both men have served as chief of Fauquier’s oldest volunteer fire and rescue company.

Fellow Warrenton volunteers and family members joined the honorees for the brief ceremony. His wife Pat, an EMT, and son Jason, a captain in the volunteer company, stood with Mr. Koglin. His wife Joann and son Brett joined Mr. Ross.
