what we do

West Side Volunteer Fire Department provides Fire, Rescue, and Emergency Medical Services to south western Wicomico County. The department maintains a fleet of apparatus capable of fire suppression, vehicle and machinery rescue, and land based search and rescue. We also maintain three boats capable of search and rescue and marine fire operations.

Emergency Medical Services are provided by 24 hour paramedic staffing with two ALS equipped ambulances. These units are capable of delivering first line emergency care that a patient would receive in the Emergency Department of the local hospital.

The Ladies Auxiliary of West Side Fire Department is available for catering events and handles rentals of the dining facilities. They can be reached by calling 410-873-2146
