Monthly Business Meeting: First Tuesday at 7:00 PM

We are continuing to provide emergency services to our community, as well as our surrounding communities with the same care that we always have. You may notice some changes in our response to emergencies, but these changes are required so that our personnel can meet with the guidelines provided by the CDC, our Emegency Services partners and the Government; to keep our personnel safe so that we can answer your call for help.

We hope that everyone continues to follow the new emergency laws and rules enacted by the Governer of Maryland and the President of the United States; and that everyone stays safe and healthy during this crisis.

We have a big change with our "ON-LINE STORE"

Due to the Covid-19 Pandemic, we have had to cancel most of our fundraising events that we depend on for funding capital expense items. For this reason, we have had to come up with creative ways to have fundraisers and that led to the creation of a new "ON-LINE STORE".

We will now be able to sell raffle tickets, merchandise, 50/50 Drawings and much more!!!

Look over in the left column for the "STORE" tab that will take you to the old On-Line Store. A link on that page has been provided for the new site. The new site is active and you can purchase anything that is on the page. Over the next several weeks, the new site will be updated frequently, so check back often to see if there are new things offered.

Thank you for supporting the Union Bridge Fire Company!!!
