Girl Scout Troop 6379 would like to say THANK YOU to Beltsville Fire Station and especially Patrick, Sean, and the other firefighter (I did not catch his name). The girls thoroughly enjoyed the tour, especially seeing the ladder truck in action. Patrick, we sincerely appreciate you taking the time to teach the girls about fire safety and showing them the ins and outs of the fire station.

Thanks again!!!

I think the five part story that was recently posted on Facebook should also be posted on your website. It was very interesting, I think I saw myself in a couple of old shots, and I think your site fans see an interest.

I love the trip down memory lane, except for the tanker I either operated or at least rode on most of the equipment.

I marched the Drum Corp for 4 years in the mid seventys including the bicentenial parades. Ran calls as a volenteer from 79-81. Richard Jones and Big Bobby Evans signed my application. Cope, DeHaven, Hefrans, Chilcoate, Lien, Birdsongs, Allens, Torre, and Palmer were all running calls then. Lt Gore was still incharge during the day and shiftmen like Belieu, Sarni, Keister, and others kept us in line. Good Times and Good memories.

Thanks for majorette pictures, I have none of myself and loved seeing the ones on the site. Seeing my brothers Bob and John as young men was very special too.
The auxilliary helped us say goodbye to our Mother, Hilda Mahoney in May 2011 and it was wonderful to be back at the Fire Hall. I'll be at the memorial event in September.

I miss Beltsville. Lived just on the road behind the FD Miss the sirens, knew there was danger somewhere but they were on their way to help. Mom and dad played bingo there and the Wrights next door Oh the good ole days. So long gone but fine memories

I am very sad to her the news about John John. He was the type of person that once you met him you would never forget him. I remember the days when we all were alot younger and John was one of the smaller guys but he had the biggest car, that big black Charger. I guess you could say the same for his big heart.
Rest in peace John, you wil NEVER be forgotten.

Site looks great!! A lot of good memories at 31. Belonged to 31 from 1975 to 1977. Miss the old 75' ladder truck and riding to laurel on 10 boxes up on the platform in the rain and cold and hiding below the hose bed on 311's back step to stay warm. Good times!!! Be safe.

If you ever need the Patriot Guard Riders for a funeral just drop us a line and we will support you and honor your fallen hero. Once a firefighter always a firefighter.

My husband Mark Hewlett was a member of your fire deptment when it was only 31. I wanted to let all of you older timers know that Mark passed away at age 60 on july 31, 2010. He enjoyed his firefighting, and riding the ambulance. I however only know you men by face not name, so please keep him in your hearts and prayers as you go out on your calls.

thank you
