About the Easton Volunteer Fire Department

The Easton VFD was founded on April 20, 1808, making it the oldest civic organization on the eastern shore of Maryland. We are located in beautiful and historic Easton, MD. Our response area includes a mix of urban, suburban, rural, commercial, and industrial areas. There are several major highways and waterways that we protect. The Easton VFD also has some extra responsibilities, such as providing fire and rescue services to the second busiest jet airport in the State of Maryland, and providing fire and EMS support to various government officials that reside in Talbot County. We currently operate out of two fire stations. Our headquarters station is located on Aurora Park Drive, and our substation is located on Matthewstown Road. The Easton VFD operates a total of five engines, a heavy rescue, a 6000 gallon tanker, an aerial tower, two brush units, two utility vehicles, an EMS unit, an incident command unit, and the Chief of the Department's vehicle. We have an active fire prevention education program with a fire safety awareness display trailer, educating thousands of people annually. We respond to approximately 1000 fire and rescue related emergencies in or near our town every year. We also provide mutual aid to most of Talbot County, as well as all surrounding counties. All of our members are 100% volunteer.
