About the Department

The Bunker Hill Volunteer Fire & Rescue Company, Inc., Prince Georges County Company 3, is one of two independent volunteer corporations operating out of the Bunker Hill Fire Station. The Bunker Hill Fire Station is located on the border of N.E. Washington DC, and just 5 miles from the White House. The station operates an Engine, Truck and Ambulance with both volunteer and career personnel. The main response area for the Bunker Hill Fire Station encompasses the towns of Mt. Rainier, Brentwood, North Brentwood, Cottage City and Colmar Manor.

We are close to the University of Maryland (4 miles), The Catholic University (3 miles), Prince Georges Community College (9 miles), Georgetown University (8 miles) and American University (8 miles). We have Metro Bus service at our front door and are close to the Rhode Island Avenue and West Hyattsville Metro stations.

Some benefits of volunteering:
High school students may earn their community service credits needed for graduation.

Participation in the Maryland State Fire Service Retirement Program (Length of Service Awards Program… LOSAP), which currently is $450.00 per month after 25 years of active volunteer service.

Tuition Reimbursement Program (through County/State).

Maryland State Tax Credit, currently at $4,750.00 after 3 years of active volunteer service.

Fully Equipped Fitness Center.

A chance to make new friends and relationships that will last a lifetime.

Could possibly lead to a career in the fire service. Many of our members have gone on to careers in the fire service after volunteering with us.

No Experience Necessary for new members.

We are seeking community minded people with a desire to serve their community in the noblest way. Volunteer positions are currently available for Firefighter/EMS, EMS only and administrative members.

All training and equipment are provided free of charge. All it takes is a desire to serve your community and a few hours a week! If you have a few spare hours a week and would like to make a difference in your community and make new lifelong friendships, come and see what we have to offer. The only thing it will cost you is your time.

Reciprocity consideration is also given to people from other jurisdictions and out of state that already have training and experience.

If you are interested in our student live-in program or just a community minded person looking to help your neighbor, WE NEED YOU!
