A Second Family & Lifelong Friendships
At the Burtonsville VFD, you’ll find a second family waiting for you. On duty and off, the members of the department share a common bond to serve their community. Lifelong friendships have been formed in our organization for the last century … if you’re looking to serve in an organization where you feel rewarded in more ways than one, the Burtonsville VFD offers this and so much more.
You provide the commitment and we provide all of the training for FREE. From in-house, local and county training, to state certified courses, and regional and national seminars and conferences – we offer you the opportunity to explore every avenue of emergency services and train you to be the best at what you do. In addition to formal training classes, we conduct nightly training drills to teach new skills and/or practice what you’ve learned to keep them honed and ready to use.
Length of Service Award Program (LOSAP) and Maryland State Tax Credit
This program rewards our volunteers’ years of service with a monthly payment benefit after 25 years of active duty, and a generous annual State of Maryland tax credit beginning after only 3 years of active service!
