As this storm approaches please be assured we are making preparations to be able to serve our community as best as possible. We have 4wheel drive emergency vehicles with plows, chains, and a full staff that will be housed at the station ready and waiting in the event there is an emergency.
Home owners should please take effort in keeping fire hydrants clear of snow. If you have called us for an emergency and hear us coming please have someone flag us down or flash your outside lights if you are able to, as some mailboxes and or addresses may not be clear due to poor visibility and snow depth.
If you do not have to travel in the snow please don’t! Stay home and stay safe so you don’t become one of the emergencies we are called to respond to!
As we prepare for the invoking snow we want to send a special Happy Birthday shout out to our very own JARRON WORMLEY!

This was a day that so many of us will never forget. Jarrett Dixon was an extremely active member of our company and always pushed everyone to be the best that they could be.

Crews responded to a close call where a vehicle almost went off the road and into water while driving on a back road within our district. Fortunately occupants of the vehicle were able to exit the vehicle safely without entering the water. Please remember to drive safely with due regard to road conditions and visibility and always obey the posted speed limit in order to remain safe.
Please be patient while we fix our website. We just found out our entire website was attacked. The cyber attackers posted links to replica watches, removed our pictures, damaged our links, and changed our site. Please bear with us over the next few days as we add layers of security to our website. No financial information was compromised during this cyber attack. Please stay tuned for further updates and be careful during the anticipated storms for the weekend of October 3-5, 2015. If you have any questions please reference the below email addresses.
In the middle of the night Liberty Road crews were up tending to several flooded basements. In this incident water filled an exterior basement entrance putting enough pressure on the door to cause it to buckle and eventually ripped it from the hinges. The door is seen on the other side of the room. When crews arrived there were several inches of water that flooded the basement causing water damage. We urge everyone to be safe when it comes to rapidly rising water as the power of water can be enough to injure or cause severe damage to persons or property in it’s path.
Engine 461 responded to a single vehicle collision in which a vehicle struck a parked vehicle and a power line pole. The driver appeared to be seriously injured requiring immediate medical attention that eventually led up to a medevac transport to a trauma center via the Maryland State
Police Aviation unit.
Special Unit 468 responded to a single vehicle collision early this morning. There were no injuries however the vehicle sustained a large amount of damage rendering it inoperable.
Congrats to two of our members Joseph Lansey and Maria Basilio on their completion of the Baltimore City Fire Academy. Over the past 5 years we have had 9 members join several career Fire Departments yet still volunteer where they earned their original skills. We thank all of you for your continued dedication
