Last night around 10pm RVFC along with surrounding companies were dispatched for a truck fire in a garage in Boring’s area. E412 arrived first to find a truck fully involved in an attached garage. Crews pulled a handline, pulled the garage door off and attacked the fire. A working fire and tanker strike team were dispatched. Due to the lack of water availability (no hydrants) the fire moved into the house. In all, more than 11 engines and tankers from Baltimore and Carroll Counties were involved in fire attack and water shuttle in order to put the fire out. Once a water supply was confirmed, then crews made an interior attack. Units were on scene for approximately 4 hours.
Last night Reisterstown VFC were dispatched for an head on collision MVC with people trapped at Main St and Glyndon Dr. S414 went enroute with 5 rescue techs followed by E412 and SU418 which were staffed with home responders (another 5 members). There was a two car MVC, at an updated location of Main St at Hanover Pike. In the end, no one was trapped.
On Thursday evening RVFC teamed up with the Chartley Homeowner’s Association to check and install new smoke detectors in the Community.
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).
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.
Our new medic unit is finished. The new medic will begin the journey to Maryland next week. Once it arrives, Atlantic will complete some miscellaneous items. The medic unit should be in service within the next two weeks. Photos are courtesy of Atlantic Emergency Solutions.
Assembly continues on Medic 415. All of the insulation has been installed and the wiring harness is in place. Installation of the parking and emergency lights is almost complete.

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!
