Recently, Ms. Ada Joyner was selected as the member to be spotlighted. Miss Ada is an Associate Member, having joined the Chestertown Volunteer Fire Company through the Auxiliary in 1989. Since that time, she has been extremely active on the administrative side of our operation. As with every volunteer / community service organization, there are people that can always be counted on. In that respect, Miss Ada is one of our mainstays. Over the years, her attendance record at fund raisers, and other activities in support of our firefighting / emergency response activities, is nearly 100%. Her dedication and work ethic is a force to be reckoned. This writer can remember few activities where she wasn’t in attendance. Her good-natured, relaxed manner makes her easy to work with and fun to be around.
At 5:32 pm on Wednesday, May 5, 2021 the Chestertown Volunteer Fire Company, along with multiple mutual aid companies, was dispatched for the Motor Vehicle Collision with Entrapment, reported Head-On, in the 26700 block of Morgnec Road (Maryland 291) just west of American Legion Road. First arriving was a paramedic from Kent County EMS, confirming head-on crash, with two trapped… the only occupants of their respective vehicles. Tragically, one patient was declared deceased at the scene, with the second patient pinned in their vehicle. This patient was in extremely serious condition.
