Fire & Rescue Station #1

Celebrating Over 206 Years of Service !

 

The Independent Hose Company is Frederick County Maryland's Fire & Rescue Station #1. We are Maryland's oldest volunteer Fire Company in continuous operation, instituted in 1818. We celebrated our 200th anniversary in 2018.

Our Volunteer & Career integrated team provides Fire, Rescue, and EMS Services, and community event support. We are the home of "Tower 1 & Canteen 1". We also provide Fire, Rescue, and EMS support to Ft Detrick.  

 As Maryland's oldest continuously operated volunteer fire station, we have a very rich history. We have been Green since 1818, ahead of our time!

We have many awards and memorabilia on display in our station, stop by and see our displays.
