Coronavirus Visitor Restrictions
On March 12th Governor Hogan declared a state of emergency for Maryland and then on March 13th President Trump declared a national emergency under the Stafford Act in response to the growing Coronavirus pandemic.
The Odenton Volunteer Fire Company’s (OVFC) number one priority is safety for its members and safety for the public. In order to stay as safe as possible during this pandemic, we must restrict access to our facilities and grounds.
All OVFC public activities have been suspended until May 1, 2020. The fire company will not be able to host any tours, birthday parties or hall rental events during this period. The fire and EMS crews will not be able to stand-by for public events or perform public education events during this period.
Thank you in advance for your understanding and honoring our social distancing obligation by not stopping by the fire station or approaching our members in public. Please understand that during this pandemic period our members will maintain a personal space area of 6-feet or more and will not shake hands – we have an obligation to stay healthy. We are all hopeful that we can open our doors and welcome you in for our 2020 OVFC Carnival starting May 19, 2020.
