About Us
We are a very progressive department with excellent taxpayer support, equipment and training. Our people have attended the Maryland Fire Academy, the National Fire Academy, FDIC, IAFC seminars, NFPA meetings and countless seminars. All EMS refreshers are conducted in-house by an outside vendor, and off-duty members are paid overtime to attend.

Our smaller department means you get to know everyone well and are included in all aspects of a fire/EMS job. We have paramedics at every rank, from new firefighter to Fire Chief. Our two-tiered
ALS system gives paramedics the flexibility to treat patients when needed or stay available when not needed.

We recently filled two firefighter jobs, and now we are looking to fill a third due to a retirement.

Interested persons must mail their cover letter and resume to Deputy Chief Leischner at our above mailing address. These letters and resumes must be postmarked no later than February11, 2021.
