This rig operates as the busiest volunteer engine company in the county.

Special thanks to 44 year member Larry Trump for his assistance with positioning the apparatus & for providing the “grand tour” of Owings Mills impressive station.

Equipped with a Roto-Ray & mechanical siren, this rig has no trouble making its’ way through traffic!!!

While relatively new having been built in 1998, Owings Mills multi-level station (built into the side of a hill) is filled with the rich history of the company. Some of the many interesting artifacts include a brass fire pole from Baltimore City Engine 7 (used during the Great Baltimore Fire of 1904) & a cast nickel bell from their 1947 Mack that was created with five cent nickel pieces collected from the membership.
