Wildland Fire Crew

The Blue Ridge Mountain Vol. Fire Company's Wildland Fire Crew is comprised solely of dedicated volunteers of the fire company that are available to respond to brush, field, woods, mountain or other wildland type fire incidents.  "WILDLAND 5" responds out of the Keyes Gap Road fire house and can be dispatched to local (in county) and to other (out of county) incidents.

WILDLAND 5 has a vast array of wildland firefighting equipment.  This equipment is carried on a trailer similar to the one pictured below.  This trailer is pulled by a utility vehicle that carries personnel our to the scene.  

Along with personnel from the BRMVFC, personnel from Washington County, Maryland Station 8 (Rohrersville) are also dispatched with "WILDLAND 8" when our crew is alerted to an incident.  This ensures that a proper number of widlland certified personnel are available to respond to the incident.
