The Hereford Volunteer Fire Company was organized in June of 1924.

Located in Northern Baltimore County, Maryland just minutes from Exit 27 off Interstate 83. We provide fire protection over a very diverse area of the county from single-family dwellings to apartments, farmland to light industry, and from Interstate highways to dense wooded areas around the watershed. Our fleet of emergency equipment consists of two Engines/Tankers, a 3000-gallon Tanker Truck, Tanker Support Unit, Brush Unit, Special Unit, and an ATV Unit. We are a fully volunteer company and stand ready to respond at any time. We are members of the Baltimore County Volunteer Firefighters Association as well as the Maryland State Volunteer Fireman’s Association.
