The Officers and Members of the Huntingtown Volunteer Fire Department and Rescue Squad understand that the health and safety of our firefighters, EMTs and the citizens that we serve are paramount in what we do. We are currently staying in touch with officials on the county, state and national level to ensure that our services to the citizens of Calvert County continue as safely as possible. With that being said, please be aware that our first responders are wearing surgical masks, however, if and when necessary, they might be wearing personal protective equipment like gowns, masks, and eye protection on calls, as seen in the photos, to help prevent the spread of this virus. Please don’t be alarmed at their equipment, as we are protecting our first responders so that they will always be able to answer every call.
The Department is taking every precaution to take care of you and to take care of our members so we can best mitigate the spread of COVID-19. We are cleaning and disinfecting our station, equipment and vehicles in accordance with current federal, state, and local recommendations. We are monitoring our members, along with having them self-monitor and to self-quarantine, if circumstances demand.
For any questions or concerns related to COVID-19, we direct you to reliable sources of information such as the Center for Disease and Control (CDC) at https://www.cdc.gov/ or the Calvert County Health Department at https://www.calverthealth.org/.
Rest assured that the Huntingtown Volunteer Fire Department and Rescue Squad is working to ensure the safety and well-being of our members and the citizens we serve.
Please continue to practice social distancing, appropriate hygiene procedures and most of all, be safe.
