FIRST HAGERSTOWN HOSE COMPANY


 

Tomorrow morning Captain Royce, Vice-President Long and Firefighter Davis will be venturing to the Oakland Twp. Vol. Fire Department in Cooperstown, PA to bring home Special Unit 3-1.  The officers and members of the Oakland Twp. Vol. Fire Department working with our personnel have graciously donated a vehicle to our department. 

We look forward to the addition of Special Unit 3-1 to our apparatus fleet and after some equipment, radio and rehab work on the vehicle it will be ready to serve our community!

Keep looking in often as we will be posting updates on the rehabilitation of this vehicle!

"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!
