A Letter to the Community Regarding COVID-19

 

March 16th 2020

 

To the Cockeysville Community,

 

After careful review of CDC and State guidelines on SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19), the Cockeysville Volunteer Fire Company has had to make some difficult decisions. Effective immediately, the following changes are being made:

 

  • The Easter Eggstravaganza event on April 4th 2020 is canceled and will not be rescheduled.
  • The Spring Quarter Auction on April 17th 2020 is canceled and will not be rescheduled.
  • We will temporarily stop accepting applications for membership.
  • Our hall rental program is temporarily suspended; however, we will continue to accept bookings for events in August 2020 or later. Existing bookings between now and August have been contacted to discuss options.
  • The fire house must temporarily suspend station tours, visits, and other non-emergency occasions in which the general public would visit the station.

 

We take these actions to ensure the health and safety of both our responders and the community. We deeply appreciate the support from the community, and we will be constantly reviewing the evolving situation with COVID-19 and as soon as it is safe to lift these restrictions, we will!

 

We want to end this email on a positive tone. While we must say the following is dependent on how the COVID-19 situation evolves, we have a tentative slate of summer events we think you will enjoy, including:

 

  • An Open House with rescue demonstrations
  • A Princess Ball character event
  • A Superhero party character event
  • Food Truck Thursdays every Thursday at the firehouse
  • A summer concert featuring Josh Christina.

 

We thank you for your continued support and offer our hope that the community follows the guidelines of the CDC and Governor Hogan and stays safe, happy and healthy. As the old saying goes: “This too shall pass.”

 

Sincerely

                                                                                                         The Cockeysville Volunteer Fire Company

Did you know: More than 70% of our nation’s firefighters and EMTs are volunteers? And that in Baltimore County, there are more than 6,000 active volunteer emergency workers?

 

At our department, our members are trained, experienced and dedicated to protecting the community, and receive no compensation for their service.

Cockeysville Volunteer Fire Company has been proudly serving the local community of Cockeysville, Maryland for over 120 years.  Founded in 1896, Cockeysville is the oldest volunteer fire department in Baltimore County, where we provide fire suppression, emergency medical services, and fire safety education to local residents and businesses.

 

Each year, Cockeysville volunteers respond to thousands of calls for service. In addition to responding to fires, car accidents, and medical emergencies, we also help educate young people about fire safety, host community meetings, provide medical and fire safety support for large public gatherings, and help make community events, like bonfires, possible.

 

Just like any community organization, our biggest asset is our people. We encourage you to learn more about what it means to be a volunteer and join our team today.
