Have you thought about how else you can help us?

Obviously, you could donate, as financial contributions are always appreciated.  There are other ways that you could assist us.

  • Do you already have Fire Fighting experience or Emergency Medical training?
  • If you are not trained, we can provide you with the training needed. It is not easy work, but challenging and extremely rewarding.
  • Not into frontline action? We have members in support roles assisting in valuable ways that do not involve Firefighting or EMS Certifications.

Contact us and let us show you how you can participate.  For Maryland residents, after your third year of qualified service, there is an outstanding state income tax break!
