On February 11th, 1967 the Nassau Bay Volunteer Fire Department was officially formed. Chuck Miller assembled a group of residents and elected the interim officers. Chuck was the first Fire Chief of the NBVFD. (He served as Fire Chief until December 1971.) The newly elected officers formed committees to investigate such items as incorporation, training, communications and equipment. Within three weeks, Chief Miller had made arrangments to lease a 1952, 750 gallon per minute, American La France pumper from the Houston Fire Department. A initial budget was presented to the Nassau Bay Homeowners Association in the amount of $14,400 dollars. (The City of Nassau Bay was not incorporated until June 1970.) The first training the NBVFD received was from the Houston Fire Department. The first drill was held on February 28th, 1967. Captain F. J. Pratorus and Chief M. M. Jahnke of the Houston Fire Department met with the members and showed two films, then went out and Engineer R. O. Zimmerman led a guided tour around the pumper he had brought, which was similiar to the one the NBVFD would receive from Houston. For the next eleven weeks members were taken through every phase of fire fighting by thier Houston Fire Department instructors
