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
