On December 31, 2013, the City of La Vergne purchased the privately owned fire department from Chief James Gafford. Previously, it had operated as a private, for-profit business paid by city funding. The La Vergne Fire Department, Incorporated was founded by A.C. Wintermeyer and James Gafford in 1965.
