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.

EVFD to Participate in 1st Annual Statewide Recruitment Initaitive



EASTON VOLUNTEER FIRE DEPARTMENT TO PARTICIPATE IN 1st ANNUAL STATEWIDE VOLUNTEER OPEN HOUSE RECRUITMENT INITIATIVE TO HELP INCREASE NUMBER OF VOLUNTEER EMERGENCY RESPONDERS

(EASTON, MD) The Easton Volunteer Fire Department will open its doors to area residents, so they can learn about what it takes to be a volunteer emergency responder in their community as part of the Maryland State Firemen’s Association’s first annual Statewide Volunteer Recruitment Open House recruitment initiative. Over the last several years, it has been very tough for many volunteer fire and Emergency Medical Services (EMS) departments throughout Maryland to recruit and retain volunteers for a variety of reasons. Like most volunteer fire departments, the Easton Volunteer Fire Department needs to bolster its number of emergency responders so it can continue to provide the optimum level of protection for its residents.


As part of Maryland’s Statewide Volunteer Recruitment Open House event on Sunday, April 12, 2015 between 11am to 4pm, the Easton Volunteer Fire Department located at 315 Aurora Park Drive, Easton, MD, will join volunteer departments all across the state at their respective firehouses for a unified recruitment drive. Not only will the Statewide Volunteer Recruitment Open House be an opportunity to highlight the rewards and responsibilities that come with being a volunteer responder, it will also raise public awareness about the need for volunteers.

Throughout the day, the Easton Volunteers will conduct tours of the station and firefighter apparatus, allow visitors to try on firefighter gear, and provide activities and fascinating informational opportunities throughout the firehouse for visitors. The fire department will discuss the requirements to be a volunteer, as well as conduct demonstrations, answer questions, and let visitors know how to get involved in the fire department.


“Come on out and join us for this unique recruitment day at our firehouse,” said Chief C. R. Chance. “This is a great opportunity for our neighbors to observe the exciting tasks of a firefighter. Our current members love what they do; they are everyday heroes who help neighbors in need. We hope our recruitment day will inspire other area residents to join our emergency services provider family.”


The goal of Maryland’s First Statewide Volunteer Recruitment Open House is that this collaborative effort among volunteer fire departments statewide will help increase the number of volunteer firefighters. This is one example of the Maryland State Firemen’s Association key initiatives to recruit and retain volunteers.

For area residents looking for more information, or to find out if other local fire departments are participating in Maryland State Firemen’s Association’s Statewide Volunteer Recruitment Open House, visit www.MDVolunteer.org , or contact your local fire department via their non-emergency phone number or its website.
