Our Home

The Arbutus Volunteer Fire Department, Inc. proudly protects 50,000 people in a 40-square-mile area of southwest Baltimore County, Maryland. We are an all-volunteer, non-profit organization dedicated to providing the highest quality Fire, Rescue, and Emergency Medical Services to our community.

AVFD-Station 350 is one of 33 volunteer fire companies in the county. The volunteer companies work hand-in-hand with 22 career stations serving a population of over 800,000.

In addition to Fire and Rescue services, the AVFD is one of only two stations in Baltimore County to operate double-Advanced Life Support medic units. In 1999, we proudly added a Swift Water Rescue Team to our response capabilities.

Our Mission:

To provide superior fire, rescue, and emergency medical services to the Arbutus and surrounding communities. We strive to protect life, property, and the environment through intervention, prevention, education, training, and community involvement.
