Glen Echo Fire Department serves the southern tip of Montgomery County, Maryland, just outside of Northwest Washington, DC. Our primary response area, commonly known as our "first due" area, includes portions of Bethesda and Chevy Chase and is bounded, roughly speaking, by the Virginia shoreline of the Potomac River on the southwest, Wilson Lane on the northwest, River Road on the northeast, and Maryland/DC border that runs along Western Avenue on the southeast. In addition, we are frequently dispatched to adjoining communities such as Friendship Heights, Kenwood Park, Somerset, Kenwood, Cabin John, and Landon Woods.
