QAC Fire & EMS Commission has sounded the alarm… Will you answer your local volunteer fire department’s call for help?

The Queen Anne’s County Fire & EMS Commission, is kicking off October Fire Prevention Month with a Call for Volunteers to fill a variety of membership positions in both emergency response and non-emergency response roles.

The QAC Fire & EMS Commission represents all 9 county volunteer fire departments located in Church Hill, Crumpton, Grasonville, Goodwill (Centreville), Kent Island (Chester), Queen Anne-Hillsboro, Queenstown, Sudlersville and United Communities (Stevensville. The goal is to boost membership in these departments.
Here, as in most rural counties, volunteers make up 100% of the emergency fire & rescue service, and they work in collaboration with the Department of Emergency Services career EMS Units to provide medical care to the citizens and visitors. In addition to emergency response members who provide Fire and EMS services, these departments also require non-emergency response members who provide administrative services to keep the department running smoothly including bookkeeping, fundraising, recruitment, community outreach, and supporting emergency response personnel on fire scenes.
Anyone 16 or older may join their local fire company. The benefits are significant and growing. They include free training, a Maryland income tax deduction, life insurance policy, LOSAP years of service reimbursement program and insurance while on the job.
For more information or to apply for membership; stop by your local Volunteer Fire Department, visit www.qacfec.org, find us on Facebook Queen Anne’s County Fire & EMS Commission or call (410) 758-6027. Join today.
