Congrats to Patrick Flowers Les Jones and Kyle Shropshire for their completion of Pumps.  10873577_896761947012758_4685965405607356706_oThis takes them one step closer to becoming an Engine Driver within our company.  969906_611295402228044_2146538415_nPumps is a 36 hour course that teaches students how a fire engine pump works, how to maximize it’s potential energy, and how to establish water sources for firefighting activities.  Being a pump operator is a crucial role on the fireground and is a very demanding task.  It requires one to think on their feet, work alone, and be very adaptive.10679998_1029297910432557_5684663770300481737_o  Not to mention they still must be able to drive and operate apparatus under emergency conditions and get to an emergency safely.

 

Multi-purpose Room

As many of you may know the second floor of our building suffered a large amount of water damage prior to our exterior renovations in 2012. We are excited to announce construction begins March 23th for a new and more modern space to include all new bathrooms, a large conference space, a meeting room and a study room. We will post photos as the project progresses. We will have up to date technology to help our members get the most out of their training.  Construction starts this month!10628450_945493945483156_4261729870601901968_n

Daylights savings time

Don’t forget to Spring your clocks forward tonight! Please also remember to check the batteries and expiration date on your smoke and carbon monoxide detectors. The standard recommendation is to replace them every 10 years for the best protection!

Inclement Weather

As the snow began to blanket our area today it was abundantly clear why Randallstown and the surrounding areas need to maintain a robust emergency services infrastructure. Today we have every vehicle and full crews on the road for everything from fire alarms and auto accidents to gas leaks and eminent child birth. Baltimore County Fire Chief Hohman even stopped by to pledge his support for our efforts to continue serving the community.

Please keep calling the legislators to let them know that any consideration by the Baltimore County Volunteer Firefighters Association’s to close the Liberty Road Volunteer Fire Company would result in increased response time to emergencies. This fact has the potential of placing lives and property at risk.
