Just about an hour ago, I was on my way home when my boyfriend got really sick and threw up. This fire station just happened to be the closest parking lot and a woman who worked here just happened to be in the parking lot. I'm sorry I didn't catch your name, but I just wanted to say thank you again for your help. We're from Prince Frederick so not even your community, nor an official call, but you lent cleaning supplies and checked on us all the same and it just makes all the difference sometimes to have a little help when things go wrong like that. So great work in the community and thank you!

Thanks again for the Santa run, this is a wonderful thing you do. The stresses that you endure on a daily basis as firefighters and first responders would make it easy to just go home and relax. But this contribution to the community really makes me think you all must be the most giving and caring group of people.
I applaud your generosity and commitment to the community, thanks so much.

My condolences to your department. Iggy was not only a member of the fire service he was a brother to many. He will be missed by all but never forgotten.

I grew up in Hughesville and fondly remember many great things about the fire department. My grandfather, Clarence McDonagh was one of those instrumental in the beginnings of the HVFD. My grandfathers business, Hughesville Motors, was located right next to the firehouse and their home was next to that. Needless to say, I visited the firehouse many many many times. I even ran for the title of Miss Fire Prevention in the late 60's...didn't win but was honored just the same. Many uncles, cousins and brothers served the fire house throughout the years. We lived up on the hill beyond what was Bowling's Store and my Dad raised tobacco... My Mom worked at the locale bank. My Grandmother Harrison lived on the corner of Benedict Road and the tree that once stood in the front of her house was planted by my grandfather and was decorated each Christmas season and Santa would visit on the back of fire truck. I still have a picture of me sitting on his lap at that very site. Oh my, I've opened up a can of worms and the memories are just flooding out. Anyway, the Hughesville Fire Department taught me great respect for firemen and what they do. To this day I yell at motorists who don't yield to fire trucks...yes, it is deep seated, but I'm proud of my roots. I even remember helping to make sandwiches for many of the fire fighters who were called to serve when one of the Hughesville tobacco barns burned down...etc. etc. etc.

We purchased a rear mount rescue pumper from Custom Fire a couple of years ago and like it extremely well. Minor adjustments, but nothing out of the ordinary. I have been following the construction of your unit on Custom's webpage. GREAT LOOKING UNIT!!

Only question I have, is how many personnel does it carry?

Our unit is on their website.

Thank you so much for the response team for the accident in Country Lakes Subdivision, Yowaiski Mill Rd on Wed, Sept 16th. My daughter Maegan was seriously injured and ALL of your team members were absolutely wonderful. She is recovering from some broken bones, and some other minor injuries, but Thanks to you she is doing great. I was the hysterical mom who had to hold it together while my husband, Steve, escorted Maegan in the helicopter ! You dont realize how good life is until you can see people so much stronger than you act in such a crisis situation and perform to your expertise. Again, we cannot thank you enough for your response and professional care you have given Maegan.
