2020 Statistical Report

In 2020, the Chestertown VFC responded to 527 calls for service with 657 individual unit responses. While we responded to 527calls, not every call is a ‘Fire.’ We respond to wide range of emergencies including motor vehicle collisions, unintentional fire alarm activations, and wires down, and yes, we respond to the occasional cat stuck in a tree. We are a 100% volunteer staffed department and our dedicated members spent countless hours of training to ensure your safety and provide the highest level of care and skill in any emergency situation to the citizens of our community. We have made it our duty to provide service for others and to act in the most professional way possible. With that, we hope for another successful year and we thank you, our community members, for your continued support. 

 

We are always accepting new applicants. If you are interested in the fire service and would like to become a member, please visit our website for an application or visit the firehouse anytime. We are eager to share this experience with you.

Local Box – Single unit responses such as Fire Alarms, Vehicle Fires, Wires Down, etc.
