This year Your Volunteer Fire Department
is beginning its 81st year of service to the
communities within and around Arbutus, Catonsville, &
Halethorpe. As one of the busiest volunteer companies in
Baltimore County we continue to average over 3,000 calls a
year for Emergency Medical, Fire, Rescue, and Swift Water
Rescue services. We look forward to continuing to provide
the services you expect and deserve as well as visit area
schools to educate our most precious resource, our children,
in fire prevention and safety at home and in school.
Our priority this year is the replacement of our 22 year old Fire Engine
and 7 year old Ambulance, both of which have served us
well. These two units combined will cost approximately
$900,000.00 so any support you can provide towards these
projects is appreciated.
We understand that you have many choices to support an array
of volunteer organizations, therefore we want to assure you
that your Volunteer Fire Department continues to strive to
provide the best service 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
Your support last year assisted with us to set funds aside
towards the down payment for the Fire Engine and Ambulance,
for that we say Thank You!
This is our primary request for direct assistance, other
than our photo fund drive which is typically held in the
fall. As with other volunteer fire companies in Baltimore
County we DO NOT conduct telephone solicitations.
This mailing is handled by our department which enables us
to receive 100% of your donation.
We’d also ask that you check to see if your employer offers
matching donations for employees who donate to charitable
organizations. If you shop online via Amazon we’d ask that
you support Arbutus VFD by utilizing Smile.Amazon.com which
provides the same products and utilizes the same login
information used for Amazon. We also have listed a range
of items that may be donated directly to the department via
Amazon Smile Charity Lists under “Your Lists”.
Please take a few moments to send in your tax deductible
check or money order to the Arbutus Volunteer Fire
Department in the enclosed return envelope, make your
donation online, or visit
and select an item on our Charity List. If you would like
to find out more about your Volunteer Fire Department, or
are interested in joining, then please stop by, visit us
online, or join us during our monthly social at the
firehouse on the first Wednesday of every month at 7 PM.
Thank You for your continued support of the Arbutus
Volunteer Fire Department and Auxiliary.
