Recently, we received a Pet Oxygen Mask, donated by local Girl Scouts. Several years ago, Ms. Pat Bjorke's Daisy Troop 1142 worked with the Chesapeake Animal Welfare Society to purchase these masks, using the monies earned from selling Girl Scout Cookies. Through an unintended misstep, there was a delay in our actually receiving the masks. Daisy Troop 1142 has since promoted within the Girl Scouts and are now designated as Girl Scout Troop 110.
At 4:35 am on Thursday, February 13, 2020, the Chestertown VFC was dispatched to 300 Washington Avenue, at the Washington College Dining Hall, for a reported Gas Leak. We responded with an Engine Company and Rescue Company.
On Friday, December 20, 2019 at approximately 12:10 am, the Chestertown Volunteer Fire Company, Kent & Queen Annes Rescue Squad, Kennedyville Volunteer Fire Company and Kent County EMS was dispatched to the Motor Vehicle Collision with Injuries on Morgnec Road (Maryland 291) near Perkins Hill Road. The actual location of the incident was on 291 in front of the old Campbell Soup property. This is located between Morgnec Creek Bridge (Blue Bridge) and the horse farm. When provided the additional information about the call, Chief 6, John "Otis" Darling added the Crumpton VFC to the incident.
