History :

The origin of firemen in region Křemže comes from year 1880. In these and later years was Třísov's fire brigade just part of Křemže' brigade later of Holubov's one. In records from these years we can find names of Třísov's inhabitants - Honetschläger, Bína, Pešl, Cába, Šimek, Šustr, Jiřička, Urban and others, who have merit on spreading of firemen's idea "To protect neighbor, to make country famous.".

Origins of separate Třísov's fire brigade are dated back to year 1935. Those were modest but promising. To this fact corresponded also armament and outfit of firemen.

For example armoury of fire brigade was projected in year 1927 by master bricklayer Bohatý from Holubov and it is fully sufficient till today. It used to be equipped with hempen hoses, hooks, ladders, wooden dryer for hoses etc. The brigade joined 53 members, what was relatively high number for those years. In year 1937 after negotiations with land owners prepared firemen for themselves training area in Doubí behind Třísov's lime.

The great celebration was held on 2. July 1939 during obtaining new, two wheel motor squirt, bought from company Smekal Slatiňany. This squirt is in Třísov stored till today in operation able condition.

Association pursued also other activities. It was regular training of pupils and number of theme exercise. Association organized social events as balls, dancing parties and chiefly amateur theatre, which mainly during years of war played important role.

After deliberation started the brigade its work with 65 members. Net revenue from celebration of Harvest home in August 1945 was given to buy trophy car, which is till today remembered in Třísov with nostalgia. Since that time used fire brigade several cars up to today's modernly equipped box Avie.

At beginning of the 50's was the fire brigade shortly combined with Holubov's one, and it became separate again in 1955 with 64 members. Led by new chairman Václav Svoboda the brigade was very active and it participated on location of several forest fires and mainly of the great one, set by lightning at the Podhradští.
