Hygiene Volunteer Fire Department
The Hygiene Fire Protection District was created in 1960 by a group of local farmers and ranchers. They were dissatisfied with the length of time it took to get assistance to the Hygiene area for fires and medical emergencies. This group of residents formed the Hygiene Volunteer Fire Department to respond to emergencies within the District.
