Construction begins on WMVFC’s new station

WMVFC Construction BeginsConstruction has begun on a local fire company’s new station.

On Thursday, construction got underway on the new facility for the White Marsh Volunteer Fire Company.

The company has grown to over 200 members and has outgrown its 68-year-old facility on Ebenezer Road.

The current station was built in 1949. Located between the CSX railroad tracks and Philadelphia Road, approximately 11,000 cars pass by WMVFC on a daily basis.

The station fields in excess of 3,600 calls per year.

The new facility will be built on land donated by General Motors Baltimore Operations.

It will be located at 10301 Philadelphia Road in White Marsh.

The new, approximately 20,000-square-foot facility will utilize an optimal floor plan for modern-day emergency response and is intended to meet the needs of WMVFC’s growing membership. It will feature individual bunks, an indoor training facility, showers for each volunteer, a gym, kitchen, and even a study.

“We are excited to see five years of planning come to fruition,” said Lt. Kevin Palmer, President at WMVFC. “A lot of time was spent from various members of the company as well as members of our community in order to develop, plan, and construct a fire and EMS station that can serve the needs of our community for the next 50 years. September 7, 2017 will be an important day in for our Company and the community we serve.”

A groundbreaking ceremony for the project was held in November.
