Baltimore County’s volunteer firefighters will receive $7 million in county aid during the next year. This includes grants to specific fire companies and subsidies for preventive maintenance, fuel and utilities.

The financial support also includes $1.7 million worth of incentives for 20 volunteer companies that provide medical service during hours of peak demand.

Check Distribution at Bowleys Quarters VFC

County Executive Kevin Kamenetz presented a portion of this money at the September 20 annual meeting of the Baltimore County Volunteer Firemen’s Association (BCVFA). This year’s meeting was hosted by the Bowleys Quarters Volunteer Fire Company.

Baltimore County has a joint fire service that includes 25 career stations and 33 volunteer fire, rescue and EMS companies, as well as two volunteer-run canteen companies that supply food and drink to responders during strenuous incidents. The volunteer companies are independent corporations that raise most of the money needed for their operations through carnivals, bingo, fundraising drives and other activities.

In addition, each year Baltimore County provides millions of dollars in support to the volunteers.

Over the course of the year, the County expects to pay out $1.7 million to the 20 companies that provide medic service. This “attended status” program rewards companies that staff medic units during hours of high demand.

New BCVFA Officers

Also on Saturday, the BCVFA elected new officers for 2014-2015. They are:

President: John McDowell, Arbutus Volunteer Fire Company
Senior Vice President: Glen Resnick, Pikesville Volunteer Fire Company
Vice President, Finance: Jamie Cahn, Lutherville Volunteer Fire Company
Vice President, Operations: Tom Ludwig, Wise Avenue Volunteer Fire Company
Vice President, Administration: Kathy Walker, Cockeysville Volunteer Fire Company
Secretary: Robert Frank, Middle River Ambulance Rescue Company

The week of May 17-23 has been designated National Safe Boating Week. In reality, boat safety should be a year round practice.

Baltimore County has 175 miles of waterfront. We in the county are fortunate to have various boating marinas, docks and parks that supply boat ramps so people can enjoy boating, fishing and other water sports.

If you are a boater or plan on buying a boat, why not plan to take the Maryland Safe Boater Class at Bowleys Quarters Volunteer Fire Department? This state-approved course is required by law for boat operators born after June 1, 1972. Even if you’ve been boating for years, this is a good refresher course, and you might learn something new.

Topics include aids to navigation, state regulations, navigation rules, and the use of emergency equipment. This information helps ensure a safe boating experience this year and in years to come.

Sessions will be held on June 7 and 8, from 9 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. and on June 28 and 29, from 9 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Bowleys Quarters VFD is located at 900 Bowleys Quarters Road, Baltimore, Maryland 21220.

Seating is limited and advance registration is required. Call 410-800-8420 to register and for more information. The class is $35 per student.

Upon completion, you will receive a Maryland Certificate of Boating Safety card.

Make every day a safe boating day.
