Carroll County (MD) Officials Readiness Concerns for Fire Department

As Carroll County moves closer to opening its Department of Fire and Emergency Services, some members of the Board of County Commissioners expressed concern, reports Carroll County Times

The new fire service will bring together Carroll’s 14 community fire companies in the same department and has set a goal of opening by July and hiring 200 personnel over the course of three to five years

Request for county intervention originally came from the Carroll County Volunteer Emergency Service Association (CCVESA) to assist with service demands and the financial burden of the various community fire companies. 

Changes to the way the department operates will eliminate the requirement for volunteers to have to raise funds for the purchase of ambulances or large capital items that need to be replaced.
