White Marsh Volunteer Fire Company is a top notch organization which provides compassionate and quality emergency care. I've witnessed this first-hand on several occasions over the past few years, and each time I'm impressed more than the last. They are truly the best of the best, and I'm proud to have them in the community.

Every year we buy our tree from WMVFD. They have beautiful trees and they provide excellent customer service.
Their food truck Tuesday’s this year are a great way for the community to come together.

My husband and I have been members for years now. The men and women of this organization take time from their families to help this community in anyway they can. Great place to volunteer and a great new firehouse. Members are dedicated and thrive to help the community.

In 2014 I received a call that stopped my day in an instant. My son had wrecked his bike at summer camp and an ambulance had been called. The paramedics were kind enough to wait for me to arrive as my son was screaming that he wasn’t going to the hospital (despite already being strapped to the gurney). The paramedic reassured me that yes he did need to go to the Emergency Department. He had split open his forehead despite wearing a helmet. They were calm and allowed me to ride along in the ambulance.
A week later (after recovering from a concussion and 8 stitches) we stopped at the station. The volunteers were fantastic and took time out of their day to walk him around and explain different parts of the trucks and ambulance.
I cannot thank you enough.

I am proud to be a member of White Marsh Volunteer Fire Company since 2005. In addition to being a volunteer firefighter and EMT, I have served in various other roles with this great nonprofit organization. You too can support our mission of providing exceptional fire suppression, rescue, EMS and public life safety education by also considering to volunteer your time in either an operational or administrative capacity, or by making a donation.

My husband had a heart attack in January. The medic unit from WMVFC responded in record time. The crew was professional, efficient and caring. Their response time, the care he received during transport and the information they relayed to the hospital were vital to his survival. We can’t thank them enough!

WMVFC hands down is the best station to be a member. The dedication to its members and community is the constant driver to succeed and train hard everyday. I have gained so much by being a part of this organization. There is always an opportunity to learn and the family unity is very strong. They always strive to improve on its members, leaders and answering calls from the community. There’s no other place I’d rather be.

I absolutely love this company. It is a second home. It is one big family. You get every part of a family. Each person learns something new everyday. One of my greatest decisions ever was joining. If I could do it all over again I would have joined sooner.

This fire company is one of the most disciplined and professional companny in the county. They have many years of experience in and out of the classroom to help them do their job correctly and safely. The new building has brought them closer together with current and new member to staff both engines and the medic as much a possible. Their EMS personnel are well educated to be able to respond to multiple calls day and night. White Marsh is an excellent fire company that deserves recognition for their excellent service to the community.

This Non-Profit has been a proud member of the Baltimore County Firefighting, Emergency Medical, and Rehab team for over 75 years. I have been affiliated with this origination since 1985 in many official roles. This origination has worked hard at bringing all parts of the Company to the top of the class. They have recently ( the last 10 years ) moved the Company from the excepted social club leadership to the format of running a business as we think the public we serve demands. We have followed the structure of businesses by creating department heads and upgrading the Board of Directors from 7 to 11 members and adding prominent citizens from our community. This has given the Company a wider incite of the needs of our community. This Company now stands as one of the most respected Volunteer Fire Company in the county and the state and holds the highest response rate in the volunteer system.

White Marsh Volunteer Fire Company is a wonderful nonprofit in my community. They are open and welcoming and very appreciative of the community they serve. I've been to several of their open houses where they serve delicious food and let everyone have a look at the equipment. Also, I can't think of anywhere else I'd get my Christmas tree!

I have been involved with his Station for 10 years. This place has gotten me through some tough times in my life. It's members are always striving to learn more about the fire and ems service and how they can provide more for their community. This is a great family to be part of and I can't wait to see what wonderful things are in its future.

I recently talked to a White Marsh VFC cadet- she told me that her middle school stresses her out. That people are constantly fighting, that she struggles to find friends who share her focus & interest. She's at WMVFC because she wants to be an EMT/FF. I'm sure she has an excellent future ahead of her & I'm grateful that White Marsh can provide her a path to her goals with their cadet program.

WMVFC is such a wonderful place to be a part of! I was a teenager who wanted to help people and WMVFC accepted me with open arms and taught me everything I needed to know to start! I learn something new everyday that I am there! There is not another fire house that I would want to be apart of. Its truly a great fire house and I wouldn't trade it for anything!

The WMVFC is a prime example of what a volunteer organization should be. The leadership far exceeds all others in Baltimore County and they continue to do this while maintaining high morale and retention amongst the team.

I was brought on the Board of Directors as a non fireman, community member. Along with two other community members we get to influence the business making duty of the board who runs the fire company. After serving on many boards this is by far the hardest working board I have ever been a part of. Things are done and presented at the meeting, it is not a work session, it is a decision making session. As new ideas are presented they are worked on immediately and while not everyone thinks things should be done the same way, through discussion the best decision is reached and adopted by all.

There is strong fiscal responsibility and a strong working budget with transparent, user friendly, financial reports.

In addition to adapting the company to ever changing county fire department policies, accomplishing the first merger with another company in the Baltimore County Fire Department, and building a better station to attract members and better be able to protect the community they also man the equipment and respond to more than 10 calls a day making it one of the busiest stations in the county.

I am proud to be a part of this progressive organization and look forward to serving into the future.
