*Frederick County Volunteer Fire and Rescue at the Frederick Fair*
September 12, 2023

The Great Frederick Fair begins on September 15 and runs through September 23, 2023.

The Great Frederick Fair exists in Frederick County to promote Agriculture and Education of our Youth about Agriculture. The fair has a wonderful rich history in Frederick County and has grown and prospered throughout the years adding many attractions and exhibits. In its history, the Great Frederick Fair has grown to continually improve and expand the event to nine days. With the many visitors, daily entertainment and attractions along with ever-evolving array of competitions, events and education, it promotes agriculture through the education of the community regarding agricultural issues and growth for future generations.

The Frederick County Volunteer Fire and Rescue Association provides the venue with onsite fire and emergency medical services along with the Division of Fire and Rescue. We are committed to providing the best care possible, protecting property and personnel, educating the public about our service, our related fields and the importance of volunteering.

Volunteers make up the majority of the United States firefighting workforce. We are committed to teamwork, the family atmosphere and the satisfaction of neighbor helping neighbor. We are committed to providing advancement in your personal goals and strengths. The skills and training gained through volunteering with us greatly enhances your ability to meet the challenges of today. The fire and EMS service is one of the most diverse and challenging vocations today.

There is value in whatever way someone can give of their time, energy and commitment to our organizations. Whatever capacity you choose to become involved in with your local volunteer fire department, it will most likely be one of the most rewarding experiences of your life.

If you want to help and are interested in joining us, we are interested in you! While at the Great Frederick Fair this week, stop by the Gear Up tent or ask any volunteer to learn how you can volunteer.

Volunteering in emergency services is one of the most important decisions you may make. We hope you decide to give this decision the time and serious consideration it deserves and join our ranks!
