Membership Application

                                                              

Carroll County is one of the few areas in Maryland that is protected by volunteer fire departments. There are fourteen independent departments in the county that work together to provide excellent fire and pre-hospital medical coverage.

The Sykesville-Freedom District Fire Department is the second-busiest company in Carroll County, protecting the residents of the Sykesville and Eldersburg areas. While the department does hire paid EMS personnel to staff the ambulances, its the volunteers that are the heart and soul of the organization.

Gone are the days when firefighters worked in the same town they lived in. Back then, when the fire whistle or bell sounded, employers would release their firefighters to answer the alarm. Being good neighbors, they knew that what goes around comes around.

Times have changed. Volunteer firefighters now work far from their homes and are unable to answer the alarm. The increased call volume, combined with stringent training requirements and the demands of everyday life dictate that more volunteers are needed. Nationally, the volunteer fire service is suffering, and Sykesville is no exception.

How can you help? Consider volunteering. We provide the equipment and the training necessary to become firefighters or EMS providers. If riding the emergency units isn't your thing, we also have need of volunteers in many administrative areas, including accounting, administration, fund raising, and fire prevention.

We also have a very active and successful junior program for young people ages 12-16. You can find out more about them by visiting the Juniors page or filling out the application listed below.

It's one of life's most rewarding experiences knowing that you are helping to serve others in their time of need. Will you answer the call?
