The Cockeysville Volunteer Fire CompanyÂ is a volunteer, community-supported fire department, and we couldn’t do our work without the dedication of community volunteers like you. Our firefighters and EMTs are volunteers with day jobsÂ — they’re technologists, home makers, financiers, mechanics, managersÂ — who come together to assist their community. And we want you on our team!
Did you know: More than 70% of our nation’s firefighters and EMTs are volunteers? And that in Baltimore County, there are more than 6,000 active volunteer emergency workers?
At our department, our members are trained, experienced and dedicated to protecting the community, and receive no compensation for their service.
Cockeysville Volunteer Fire Company has been proudly serving the local community ofÂ Cockeysville, Maryland for over 120 years. Â Founded in 1896, Cockeysville is the oldestÂ volunteer fire department in Baltimore County, where we provide fire suppression, emergency medical services, and fire safety education to local residents and businesses.
Each year, Cockeysville volunteers respond to thousands of calls for service. In addition to responding to fires, car accidents, and medical emergencies, we also help educate young peopleÂ about fire safety, host community meetings,Â provide medical and fire safety support for large public gatherings, andÂ help make community events, like bonfires, possible.
Just like any community organization, our biggest asset is our people. We encourage you to learn more about what it means to be a volunteer and join our team today.
