HVFC ANNOUNCES NEW FIRE STATION & EVENT CENTER CAPITAL CAMPAIGN

By Fire Lieutenant JJ Lynott
June 7, 2021

Hampstead Volunteer Fire Department is a 501 (C) 3 non-profit organization serving the Carroll County region in Maryland. We are currently requesting funds to support the construction of our new fire station in order to better serve the residents, businesses, and visitors to our area.

The Fire Department formed in 1900. After a carnival, the community decided to purchase a Hook & Ladder firetruck. It cost $75.00. A year later, the community purchased a fire engine at a cost of $300.00. In 1902, The first firehouse in Hampstead was built. It cost $3,500.00! HVFC secured loans and the volunteers themselves personally guaranteed repayment. In 1947, HVFC put it’s first ambulance in service. In 1975, the current HVFC fire house was dedicated. The company has since grown to serve a bustling economic and residential hub of Northeastern Carroll County. Hampstead is seeing a major increase in commercial and residential development. In addition, critical infrastructure such as the Route 30 bypass reside in our first due area. This brings thousands of transient population through our district every day. The HVFC now responds to an average of 1,700 calls of service per year. This is done with a dedicated group of 141 members. The company has 9 pieces of emergency apparatus in its fleet.

In 2016, the leadership began searching for a new home. Since the start of the COVID 19 pandemic, our members have answered the call. They selflessly exposed themselves to help members of the community. 24 hours a day and 7 days a week, our members have responded with bravery and professionalism. Our volunteers responded without any compensation. However, HVFC also suffered a loss of funding. We were unable to hold numerous fundraising events, including our annual carnival.

We have worked diligently to secure financing for the project. The project is valued at $6.1 million dollars. This is a long way from the original station’s cost of $3,500.00.

Any donation for our company will help!
