"Congratulations to our "BROTHERS" in Bakerton"

The officers and members of the First Hagerstown Hose Company would like to congratulate the officers and members at the Bakerton Volunteer Fire Department, Company 7, Jefferson County, West Virginia on the purchase of their new water rescue boat.

"VOLUNTEERS" at the Bakerton Fire Department stepped up and took over water rescue operations after the service was dropped by the Independent Fire Company in Ranson.

Water Rescue incidents are now handled jointly by the volunteers at Bakerton along with vessels from the Potomac Valley Vol. Fire Company of Washington County, Maryland.

Kudos to Chief Smith and his "VOLUNTEERS" for stepping up and providing this service to the citizens of Jefferson County, West Virginia.
