Today, Hughesville volunteers were busy serving our community and those surrounding us. This morning just after 6:30 am, Engine 24 responded to Benedict to assist with a tree blocking the road involving power lines.

Around 10:15 am, Hughesville was alerted to Mechanicsville in St Marys County for the motor vehicle collision. Squad 2 responded and upon arrival located a vehicle overturned on its roof. Squad 2 secured the vehicle and assisted Mechanicsville VFD.

At approximately 11:11 am, Squad 2 was alerted to Mechanicsville, St. Marys County for the motor vehicle collision involving extrication. While responding, units were advised of an overturned tractor trailer. SM Ambulance 188C arrived to find a two vehicle collision with an overturned tractor trailer. St. Marys Squad 2 arrived shortly after and assumed command. A small hazmat leak from the tractor trailer was mitigated and the assignment was scaled back. Hughesville Squad 2 was released shortly after arrival.

At 11:22 am, Hughesville volunteers were alerted to Gallant Green Road and Truman Manor Ln for the extrication collision. Engine 22 responded from quarters and Squad 2 responded from St. Mary's County. Battalion 2C arrived to find a two vehicle collision with no entrapment and one patient with minor injuries. Paramedic Ambulance 2 responded and transported the patient.

Again around 2:34 pm, Hughesville Volunteers responded to Olde Mill Rd for the structure fire. Engine 22, Tanker 2, Battalion 2C responded. First arriving units found a small fire in the attic which was quickly extinguished. Battalion 2C held the Command until the arrival of Chief 15A.

Hughesville Volunteers maintained multiple crews throughout the day to serve our communities and those around us. We strive to provide around the clock services to those who need us most, our community.

We are also seeking volunteers to assist in various capacities around our department. We have operational and administrative positions available. We offer the Length of Service Awards Program (LOSAP) and all training is free. Stop in and fill out an application to join. We look forward to adding you to our team.
