"Oldest Active Firehouse in the State"

The Most Historical Fire House in Maryland

Maryland is home to many historic fire companies, some of which date as far back as the early nineteenth century.  Most old firehouses now serve as other multi-purpose uses, but in old cities like Hagerstown, there are still a fair amount of older ones that are still actively operated by the fire department.

Many of them share a rich heritage.  Fire historian and intern with Preservation Maryland, Kurt Waters, has documented some of the state’s oldest and most unique firehouses that are still standing today.

The Hagerstown Firehouse of the First Hagerstown Hose Company, located on S. Potomac Street just south of Washington Street, is the oldest active firehouse in the entire State of Maryland. 

The building was constructed in 1881 of a unique Italianate architecture.  Today this firehouse is home to Hagerstown Engine Co. 1 which houses Engine #1 and Reserve Engine #1 as well as the Museum of Firefighting History.

"CONGRATULATIONS"

The officers and members of the First Hagerstown Hose Company would like to congratulate the following individuals:

Fire Chief:  Mark Kopp

Assistant Chief:  Bobby Asper

Captain:  Cory Lescalleet

Lieutenant:  Robert Gordon

 These individuals were placed in these positions by Bryon Black, the Receiver assigned to oversee the process of getting the Community Vol. Fire Department District 12, Fairplay, MD back in service.

Great strides have been made by these individuals and more to make this happen.  They have checked equipment inventories, gone over equipment that needed repaired and detailed fire apparatus that has sat unused since 2012.

We would like to welcome you back and look forward to working with you on mutual and automatic-aid calls in the very near future.

"CONGRATULATIONS"

The Officers and Members of the First Hagerstown Hose Company would like to congratulate the members of the Washington County Emergency Air Unit on the purchase of their new Rosenbauer "Heavy Duty" AIR UNIT.  Retired members and an active member of the Hose Company hold memberships with this fine organization and still remain active with it today. 

 Chief Horn and his volunteers provide a valuable service to our firefighters and we are greatly appreciative of their assistance to our firefighters on the incident scene!
