The Elkridge Volunteer Fire Department Needs Your Help
We had a well-attended and interesting visit to the Elkridge Firehouse last night! We learned how the Ellicott City Fire Department came to be known in the area as "Foundation Savers" because they had to come from so far away that the house was lost by the time they got there. We learned how the community came together, they cobbled together their first firetruck ("Daisy") and purchased a garage/stable (at the current firehouse site) for their house. Since then they have grown from 60 calls a year to over 3000!
The Elkridge Volunteer Fire Department is very grateful for all the support of the community. Without the community support, it would cease to exist. There is one more thing we can do, though, that is free: Write an email or letter to the county council members requesting that the funding for the new firehouse be pushed through as quickly as possible. The current firehouse is not adequate for our growing community. The fire trucks barely fit in the bays. All trucks have to be customized to fit into the bays, and it is a feat of utmost skill to back those trucks into the house. The new house will have "pass-through" bays so that it is safer and easier to stow the trucks. To contact the county council go to this page: http://cc.howardcountymd.gov/Contact-Us - you can either fill out the contact page or email each council member individually:
See the attached photographs which will show how jam-packed the bays are with the trucks and fire fighting gear. One of the trucks was out and about - otherwise imagine how crowded it gets! Also see how little clearance from the roof Squad 1 is. Eek!
