Story

The Liberty Road Volunteer Fire Company is looking for support of any kind with raising funds to replace our 1992 Seagrave fire engine which has proudly served our communities for the past 28 consecutive years.

The Liberty Road Volunteer Fire Company is one of two volunteer fire companies in Baltimore County with predominant african-american female staffing and serves over 21 nautical square miles of communities that primarily include but are not limited to Randallstown, Granite, Woodstock, Harrisonville, New Town and parts of Owings Mills.  We also service mutal aid assistance to Howard and Carroll Counties and assistance to any of our other neighboring communities in Baltimore County during heightened emergency call volumes.

We have worked hard to remain a strong member of our communities and have overcome many social injustices while still remaining true to our primary mission of responding to emergencies. We remain involved in our communities, the education of our children, and involved in building bridges over the gaps of inequality.

This year our fire engine suffered substantial damages when it was struck by a person illegally passing it on the left with its emergency warning divices activated. Damage to the air system, front bumper, electronics, drivers side doors, emergency warning system,and wheel created a large repar bill. The repairs will make our fire engine functional until we are able to replace it but it will never be the same due to it's age and the many damaged components. Although damaged we still were able to respond in our fire engine until it was able to be repaired during the height of the COVID19 pandemic. Currently we are operating a loaner fire engine from the Baltimore County Fire Department until the repairs are complete.

We are doing what we can to help our community with what we have and are asking you to donate what you can, share our fundraiser among your networks, and help us meet our goals to raise funds for a new fire engine. We thank you in advance; the Liberty Road Volunteers.
