Your Volunteer Fire Department is beginning its
79th 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 3000 calls a year for Emergency
Medical, Fire, Rescue, and Swift Water Rescue services.
Over the next year 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. In
order to continue to be prepared we are once again asking
for your financial assistance.
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 us with the purchase of
equipment for a new ambulance which was delivered in the
spring and for that we say
Thank You! In
preparation for the future we have begun a major renovation
of our facility where the EMTs and Firefighters spend most
of their time. This upgrade began in March and is scheduled
to be completed in June at a cost of approximately $400,000.
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 also handled by members of 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
