Members from Rose Hill VFC (Dozier Al.) visit Station 29 for the weekend


March 31, 2014 - We have been truly honored to host Chief Jesse Jones and Assistant Chief Sam Moore of the Rose Hill Vol. Fire Dept. (Dozier, AL) for the weekend. The crew made the 900+ mile journey to purchase a set of Holmatro rescue tools that we were selling. The tools will be carried on their Engine 1 (former "Engine 291"), and will greatly enhance auto extrication capabilities in their area.

While at Providence, our brothers from Rose Hill rode with us on several calls, including a first due working rescue on the Baltimore Beltway (I-695), and were also able to take part in some training opportunities.

Despite the gloomy weather, many new friendships have been forged, and many experiences have been shared, truly exemplifying the "BROTHERHOOD" of the fire service!

Chestertown VFC E68 comes to Station 29


March 15, 2014 - The Officers and Members of Providence would like to send a big Thank You to the Chestertown Volunteer Fire Company. Due to our Engine 292 going out of service for an extended period of time due to repairs, and the new Engine 291 still being in the final stages of construction, the Chestertown Volunteers were gracious enough to lend us a hand and allow us to borrow one of their engines (E68) to run as our first line engine.

During Engine 68's stay at Providence VFC, it responded to various incidents including several dwelling fires, and a vehicle rescue on Interstate 695.

We would like to again thank Chief Bruce Neal and the members of the Chestertown VFC for their generosity and willingness to help us in our time of need!
