Congratulations to Maria Basilio and Michael Bossmon for completing their Emergency Medical Technician refresher training that’s required of our volunteers triannually via the Maryland Fire and Rescue Institute. This particular class is comprised of 24 hours of classroom time and another 3-4 hours of online classes that our members take out of their busy schedules.Keep up the good work!!!
Meet the Member of the Month Jarron Wormley. Jarron has been a member of the fire company since February 2008 and has continued to grow as a Firefighter and EMT. Jarron currently is in the Baltimore County Fire Department and is a Sergeant within our company. Today we salute Jarron for his dedication to the company and for his commitment to riding our medic unit; some days right after he gets off work.
Congrats to Patrick Flowers Les Jones and Kyle Shropshire for their completion of Pumps. This takes them one step closer to becoming an Engine Driver within our company. Pumps 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. Not to mention they still must be able to drive and operate apparatus under emergency conditions and get to an emergency safely.
Many thanks to the gentlemen from the Reisterstown Volunteer Fire Company who came down to assist with the removal of some of the remaining cabinets in our former Community Hall. The contractors are in the building and deconstruction has begun with a plan to be fully operational as early as June 2015. Stay tuned for more details
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!
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.

The Baltimore County Volunteer Firemen’s Association (BCVFA) announces they are considering closing three volunteer fire stations; one is the Liberty Road Volunteer Fire Company (LRVFC). This comes after the Baltimore County Volunteer Firemen’s Association commissioned a report from Volunteer Firemen’s Insurance Services Inc.(VFIS) that studied certain information regarding the Baltimore County Fire Department and the Baltimore County Volunteer Fire Stations
