Berwyn Heights VFD - THE ONLY VOLUNTEER FIREFIGHTING AND EMS EXPERIENCE THAT FOCUSES ON VEHICLE EXTRICATION, TECHNICAL RESCUE AND TRUCK COMPANY OPERATIONS. [NO ENGINE COMPANY!!]
The Berwyn Heights Volunteer Fire Department provides both EMS and Firefighting protection to the residents of Prince George's County, located in the suburbs of Washington DC.
Unlike any other fire department in PG County, Berwyn Heights has NO ENGINE in the firehouse. This means the volunteers are highly trained in Truck Company Operations and Heavy Rescue Work. Many firehouses around the world have engines, but ONLY Berwyn Heights has just a truck and rescue squad. Members who join Berwyn Heights have the opportunity to become part of the PGFD Technical Rescue team as we are the only volunteer company in PG County to be apart of that.
Inside the firehouse you will find live-in or bunk-in members who live in the firehouse. These members go on vast majority of the calls and actually live at the firehouse. They go to school full time at the University of Maryland, some choose to work for Maryland Fire and Rescue Institute (MFRI) or have a full time job somewhere else.
Our fire house is staffed Monday through Friday during the day with Career Firefighters from the PG County Fire Department, but our members are still able to ride fire trucks any time they want.
We are looking to grow our team and add to the best fire department in the county, state and world. If you are interested in becoming an EMT, Firefighter or both this is a great opportunity for you. We offer free training and you do not need any experience.
If you think you are up for the challenge and want to join our EMS division, Firefighting Division or if you have an interest in becoming a live-in member, please visit our website and complete an application!
