Chestnut Ridge has a unique territory which can create numerous challenges. Since we are in an area where there are no fire hydrants, we rely on streams, ponds, and underground tanks to supply water to the fireground.
Emergency Medical Services
We offer one of the best EMS programs in the region. Our medic carries state of the art equipment and we have the largest number of active volunteer Advanced Life Support providers in Baltimore County.
Chestnut Ridge is home to S.O.R.T. (Special Operations Response Team). The S.O.R.T.50 vehicle carries a plethora of equipment for mass casualty and large-scale incidents as well as supplies for incidents involving an "active threat" or hostage situations.
