Mission Statement

The Hampstead Volunteer Fire Engine & Hose Company No. 1 is dedicated to protecting and preserving the lives, property, and environment of the citizens and visitors of the communities to which we serve.  We will achieve this by providing the highest levels of fire suppression, rescue services, and emergency medical care through continual training, public education, and emergency response.

The Hampstead Volunteer Fire Company is suspending the public’s use of the Social Hall at the firehouse in order to comply with Governor Larry Hogan's statewide order to cancel the hosting of large events because of the outbreak of the COVID-19 virus.

As an additional precaution, the Firehouse (along with the Social Hall) is closed to all visitors.

All social, rental, and public events at the firehouse (including events hosted by the Auxiliary) are cancelled or postponed until at least May 1.  We will be continually reevaluating this date as new information is gathered.

While our facilities are restricted from the public for now, rest assured that the Hampstead Volunteer Fire Company is fully staffed, ready, and able to respond to emergencies in the community.

Continue to call 9-1-1 for all emergencies.

Please refrain from calling the firehouse for information on this issue.  You will be contacted with refund information if you have already purchased tickets for an event or have paid a rental deposit.

Please contact the Health Department at 410-876-4848 if you have any COVID-19 questions.

All Auxiliary Events and Meetings are Cancelled Until at Least May 1 due to Coronavirus.
