Our plan this year is to stop at common areas where large groups of people can gather to see Santa. We cannot make it to every street, this way we can give everybody an equal opportunity to see Santa by having our community come to him.

It's important to note that Santa cannot get down from the fire engine. His large belly makes it tough to get up and down. If needed, one of our firefighters can pass a message to him.

Let us know your there, flashlights and flashing porch lights helps. 

There are some streets that we just can't get down easily. If your neighborhood is listed for that night and you hear sirens, try to get out to a larger road to see Santa. Especially for dead-end streets and tight courts.

If you have a special need for Santa to visit your home, please send us a private message and we will TRY to accommodate requests. Santa is pretty busy this time of year. We ask for a donation of your choice to the fire company to do this.  


Sometimes we have to take Santa on emergency calls with us. If we can, we will get right back out after the call. If not, stay posted to Facebook for updates on makeup dates. 

Don't forget that tree sales are still going on at the fire station. Stop down if you need a tree.

Santa clause will begin his visits around 6:00PM and he will finish around 8:30PM.  

The streets listed are meant to give the general neighborhoods, and not be a full list. If we were on your street before, there is a good chance you'll see Santa again.

Vehicle Extrication Training Drill

On Tuesday, November 15, 2016, members of OMVFCo held a vehicle extrication training exercise.  Members practiced stabilizing an overturned car; removing doors that are pinned shut; a roof roll to allow access to a trapped patient; and moving a dash board if it is compressing a victim.

Special thanks to Mark Moody for the photos.

Annual Firemen's Carnival Coming to an End

The members and officers of the Owings Mills Volunteer Fire Company are sad to announce that our Annual Firemen's Carnival will be coming to an end. There will be no carnival in 2016, and for the foreseeable future.  The event was one of our largest fundraisers of the year, bringing in an average of $40,000.  

Carnival at the Owings Mill Metro lot on Painters Mill Road.

Over the years, the carnival was held at our old fire station on Reisterstown Road (on the side of the current Buffalo Wild Wings and Garrison Forest Shopping Center) and at the Owings Mills Metro Station.  For a brief time, the carnival was held at the Arcadia Volunteer Fire Company before it was moved to the Owings Mills Mall.  

With pending plans to demolish the mall, we were not able to secure the location for the carnival, which was normally held in June.
