M415 Placed in Service Today

We are proud to say that our new medic was placed in service today replacing our previous unit (which has been OOS for several months).

Night Time House Fire in Glyndon

E412 and S414 were dispatched for a house fire in Glyndon.  E412 arrived to find smoke coming out of the second floor window and pulled a handline into the house.  S414 arrived second and setup lighting and helped with fire suppression and search.  An appliance fire on the second floor had spread to a room-and-contents fire.  Units from Stations 41, 40, 56, 31 were on scene for over an hour for fire suppression, overhaul and cleanup.

Reisterstown VFC receives BGE Emergency Response Grant

The Reisterstown Volunteer Fire Company was awarded an Emergency Response and Safety grant from BGE.  The grant will be used to purchase a Lucas CPR chest compression system (it will cover $8,000 of the $14,000 cost).  The Lucas will perform chest compressions on patients in cardiac arrest and will allow personnel that  would be performing chest compressions to perform other patient care tasks.  It will perform consistent compressions without fatigue and makes it easier for EMS personnel to move patients without any interruption in CPR.

The members and officers of the Reisterstown Volunteer Fire Company would like to thank BGE for awarding the grant to our community!
