... these folks soon appear!
This barn fire in March 2011 was across the fields behind our house. Fredrick County fire and rescue services are provided by a mix of volunteer and paid staff. The response to a fire like this will bring units from the surrounding towns. Unfortunately, many of the trucks lining the road could not get near enough to help with the fire. For many of the farm fires, water must be brought in on tankers. Many thanks go to these companies that protect us from fires, provide emergency medical care and sometimes rescue us from places we should not be!.
