|VOLUNTEERING WITH US||PLEASE DONATE TODAY||WHO KNEW?|
|No experience is required for any of our positions. If you have the will
to go through training and to commit to serving the community regularly
for at least two years, we are thrilled to have you participate.|
Please consider joining our firehouse family!
|Funds contributed by the residents we serve allow Glen Echo Fire Department to operate not just as a good fire, rescue, and emergency medical service, but as a truly exceptional one.|
The advanced life support upgrades to our ambulance that allow our paramedics to care for heart attack and stroke patients, as well as our fire chief's command vehicle, are but a few of the items we've purchased thanks to the community's generosity.
Moreover, some of the grants and loans for which we can apply require us to provide matching funds, and those dollars can only come from our fundraising efforts.
Please give back today -- your support makes the difference.
|Glen Echo Fire Department is owned and operated by Conduit Road Fire Board,
Inc., a private, non-profit corporation chartered by the Maryland Legislature in 1931, and led by a board of directors elected from neighborhoods GEFD serves. |
Conduit Road, as MacArthur Blvd was originally known, got its name because of the large water pipes buried beneath it.
Glen Echo Fire Department made history in 1979 when it hired Pam Foltz as the first female firefighter in the county.
Glen Echo's "first due" or primary response area is over 6 square miles and is home to nearly 20,000 people. Click the map above for details.
