February 17, 2014 - On February 17, 2014 around 2100hrs, Station 29 was alerted to respond to the report of a dwelling fire on Center Circle Rd. in Towson.
Engine 292 and Floodlight 293 immediately responded with 6 volunteers, and while en route the first arriving unit (Towson Engine 1) reported that they had a 3 story single family dwelling with smoke showing. Engine 292 arrived moments after, laying a supply line from the closest hydrant to Engine 1. Due to the cold weather conditions, crews found that the first hydrant was frozen, and the next arriving Engine (E11) was forced to find a secondary water source.
At this point, The Working Fire Assignment was requested (bring T297 to the scene), and crews from E1, T1, E292, and FL293 were able to locate and extinguish the fire on the top floors of the dwelling while enduring heavy heat and smoke conditions. Crews from E292 and FL293 were on scene for approx. 2.5 hours with crews from Stations 1 (Towson), 8 (Fullerton), 11 (Hillendale), 10 (Parkville), and 30 (Lutherville VFC).
While returning to quarters, Truck 297 responded to two additional calls for service in the Towson area, helping the crews from Medic 8 and 17 with patient care and transport.
Great Job to all crews on the scene!
February 05, 2014 - On February 5, 2014 around 2200hrs, Station 29 was alert to respond for a Dwelling Fire in the 4300 Block of Meadowcliff Rd in Long Green. Engine 382 (Long Green VFC.) was the first to be on scene and reported that they had a 1 ½ story single family dwelling with fire showing.
Engine Co. 292 was the second piece to arrive on scene, pulled a second attack line off E382 and stretched it to the front door where they encountered heavy fire conditions in the front room and attic.
Floodlight 293 and Truck 297 arrived soon after with 8 volunteers, assisting the engine companies locate the seat of the fire, venting the roof, and overhaul/salvage operations. Units from Station’s 8, 10, 47 (Jacksonville VFC), 48 (Kingsville VFC), 55, and Harford County Station 13 (Fallston VFC) were also on scene. Great job by all crews on scene!

November 30, 2013 - On the evening of November 29, while many were still shopping, members from Providence VFC were fortunate to be able to provide transportation for Santa Claus through parts of Campus Hills. Upon arrival at Scarlett Drive and Squires Road, Santa was able to visit with some of the neighborhood children and receive their wish lists. He also inspected the neighborhood Christmas tree and sampled a few cookies. After his visit, he boarded Truck 297 and was taken away so he could prepare for his next public appearance.

October 16, 2013 - Fire Prevention week is a busy time in every firehouse in the Country, and at the Providence Volunteer Fire Company it is no different. In fact, our activities began before Fire Prevention Week, and will continue throughout October.
We have conducted **5** school fire drills! Evacuation during an emergency is stressful. Practice makes perfect.
For our youngest neighbors we used this time to interract and introduce ourselves. These children received a special fire safety talk. We empashize Exit Drills in The Home (E.D.I.T.H.), demonstrate a smoke detector, and talk about 9-1-1 activation. We also show the children the tools we use and what a firefighter looks like when he is all dressed up to go into a fire. This way the children will not be scared of the firefighter.
We show them our apparatus and the tools that they carry. We even let them get inside to see what it looks like from the firefighters' point of view. Oh...and we even answer "a few" questions.
We visited the Chick-Fil-A restaruant on Joppa road for their "Kid's Night". We showed off our engine, let the childrent climb aboard and see close up what we carry. Our friend "Fire Dog Snoot" even visited and took some picture with the guests.
If you have any questions about E.D.I.T.H., smoke detectors, or any other fire prevention topic, please contact the station or email email@example.com
