The LVFD is a volunteer corporation with approximately 90 members, of which 40-50 ride regularly. We fall under the Prince George's County Fire/EMS Department and have 4 career county ffs (1 captain, 3 ffs) who staff the station M-F, 0700-1500. The rest is covered by our volunteer members.
The corporation owns 3 engines, 1 tower ladder, a pickup truck, mobile command van, and a new Ford Expedition. A Crown Vic is donated by a local dealership each year for the chief and the county provides another car for our deputy or assistant chief to use. All of this is run from 1 station.
We serve a population of over 50,000 in our first due which is mainly residential and commercial and provide mutual aid to 3 surrounding counties; our nickname is Border Patrol. Our station is manned around the clock and we don't respond from home. Currently 3 members live at the station and more sleep in each night. Our members and career staff responded to 3279 calls in 2000.
Check us out at www.laurelvfd.org and take care and be safe.
