Several weeks ago Reisterstown unveiled the memorial to the two firefighters who have died in the line of duty from our station. Many were involved in creating this memorial as a reminder to all of us.

Never forget…

Car vs pole

Last night Reisterstown was alerted for a car crashed into a pole on Gores Mill Road.  Originally it was a non-emergency call but was then upgraded to a possible auto fire.  E412 arrived to find the driver out of the vehicle.  An ambulance was called to transport the driver due to the impact of the vehicle into the pole.
