On Monday Night around 7:15 pm, Grasonville Units were dispatched for a smoke investigation on Bennett Point Road in the area of Cemetery Road. Units investigated the area and were able to locate a working woods fire in the area of 260 Crows Nest Road. This road and location had very limited access for bigger fire appparatus. Command (Asst. Chief Marsh) requested extra brush units, an additional Tanker, and UTV’s to assist with access. Units works for several hours to control and fully extinguish the fire.

GVFD was assisted by units from the following companies:
Queenstown Volunteer Fire Department
Kent Island Volunteer Fire Department
United Communities Volunteer Fire Department
Goodwill Fire Company
Queen Anne - Hillsboro Volunteer Fire Company
Sudlersville Volunteer Fire Company

Sending hugs, love and gratitude for all who have served there and made many special memories over the years. I know it is bittersweet but also exciting. Congrats to all on the next steps!!!

So many memories. As a little girl I remember when it was just an over grown piece of land and some man drove his car into it and was killed. In my later years I joined the ladies aux. and we did dinners, Easter parties, Halloween parties. Oh and many morning breakfast was fixed and ready when the firemen returned from a call. Remember the charted members and the good times and wish the upcoming good times to the members in the new building. The best group of men and women giving of themselves to the community.

My dad, Pete Quinn, helped build that building, and the VFW and was a charter member or something. Remember when the carnival was held out back, used to serve at dinners there.

Heart pain commences! The memories…. But happy for you all!!! If you sell the bricks, I would LOVE to have a couple! Let me know the cost and I will get it to you…

It's sad to see this alot of memories am sure I love the carnival my family n friends used to go to see Mrs.Burns and all the kids we would go out back of firehouse and play ga.es mainly baseball. CONGRATULATIONS well deserve we are sad but progress and new era's now making new memories. Thanks to everyone have to remember with all the new people moving in the area with the growth of yhe population a mew amd bigger firehouse sure is needed GOD BLESS EVERYONE. EVERYONE SAY A SILENT PRAYER ,

Surely, end of an era for you and so many served by you all! Has been great to see that thermometer rise.’ Warmest wishes for continued success in all things fire and safety! 🦾🧑‍🚒

My uncle , Vincent Langley was a volunteer there. I also worked for Raymond Aaron when I was in high school. Knew a lot of good people who served there. Sad to see it go but Grasonville is growing a new one is definitely needed!!

On Friday Night, The Current Membership, Life Members, and Past Fire Chiefs gathered at the Firehouse for a night of fellowship and story telling. With the impending demolition of the old firehouse, the membership wanted to have one final gathering to reminisce about memories and history of our firehouse. As seen in the pictures, many members stayed into the evening hours enjoying time together and stories of the past.

Thanks to everyone that came out and We look forward to making this event a yearly event.

I love this departments history, it is full of service and dedication. Those are some of the foundation stones of foresight and innovative leadership. Job well done and keep up the good work.

Mr Pete 13 Truck second from left.

great story! Thanks to both groups

Great leadership !

My heroes may have 2006 to forever

MAXIM ladder!

Firefighters back then were another breed driving this long wheelbase trucks with no power steering, guys must have had fore arms like Popeye. And look at the distance from the back of the front fender to the back of the cab. All that space for two people. Thank you for sharing the picture. Godspeed to our first responders
