On October 11, 1940 the Shippensburg Fire Police held a reorganization meeting in the Vigilant Hose Company rooms. Officers were elected and by-laws for the organization were drawn up. The organization was comprised of 10 men from each of the two fire companies. Meetings were to be held the first Monday of every month. Elmer Fleming, Sr. was elected president. A seven-man advisory board was also named consisting of the borough Burgess, chief of police, borough chief and assistant chief, presidents of each of the two companies and the Fire Police secretary/treasurer.
