Busy Day at Cambridge Station 1
By Firefighter Kevin Carr
April 13, 2020

The volunteers of Rescue Fire Company started out early this morning at 8:22AM assisting St Michaels (Talbot Station 40) with A Commercial Building Fire. On a normal day that would have been it, but this day was far from normal with the high winds & Rain. 26 members went on to run 10 additional calls of trees and wires down in the first due area utilizing almost every piece of equipment in the fire station. As if that wasn't challenging enough, 30 members finished the day with A Commercial Building Fire in the Cambridge 1-1 Box Area (Laura's Pretty Paws) on Maryland Ave.
