The Huntingtown Volunteer Fire Department and Rescue Squad regrets to announce the passing of life member, and past Safety Officer Bernard (Bernie) L. Collins.
Bernie joined the Huntingtown Volunteer Fire Department and Rescue Squad in 1996, and held the ranks of Fire Captain, and Safety Officer. Bernie was extremely instrumental in the development and the success of the Probationary Program, as well as, the Calvert County High School Vo-Tech program.
Viewing and Memorial Services will take place on Thursday, June 15th, 2017, at 1400 hours, at the Huntingtown VFD&RS.
Bernie spent more than 50 years as a firefighter, instructor, and leader. He leaves behind a legacy of excellence in the fire service and in those whom he taught. His skill and knowledge is surpassed only by his smile and his endearing love for his family, friends and colleagues. Rest In Peace my good friend.
