Volunteer Weekend Registration - PLEASE READ FIRST!

The Baltimore County Volunteer Weekend is a joint training program between the Baltimore County Volunteer Firefighter's Association and the Baltimore County Fire-Rescue Academy.  This weekend provides the Hazardous Materials Awareness & Core Competencies Program and initial CPR Training.  Unless impacted by a holiday, this weekend is typically the first weekend of each month.  If you are a new member and wish to register for one or both of these programs, please read the below information carefully before submitting your application.

General Registration Information
Registration is limited to 30 members per month.  The Saturday session runs from 8:00 a.m. until approximately 4:00 p.m.  This day covers an orientation to the Baltimore County Fire Service and the Hazardous Materials Awareness & Core Competencies Program.  Students will start the day at the Pikesville Volunteer Fire Company, then travel to the Baltimore County Fire Department Station #14 (Brooklandville) halfway through the day for completion.  Students should plan on packing a lunch and arranging for transportation between the stations, as it will not be provided.

Sunday's session runs from 8:00 a.m. until approximately 4:00 p.m.  This day covers cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) and automated external defibrillator (AED) training and is held at the Liberty Road Volunteer Fire Company and the Pikesville Volunteer Fire Company.  We will do our best to seat you at the station closest to your home station.
