Mt Airy Fire Department
Opening Hours:
24 Hours

Mt. Airy had several devastating fires before the fire company was finally organized. Three tragic fires -1903, 1914, and 1925 - - completely destroyed the town. The Independent Hose Company from Frederick brought their steamer to the 1914 fire by a flatbed railroad car, and water was hauled to the 1925 fire by three B&O locomotives. The town needed a fire company!

In late 1925, letters were sent out calling for a meeting to be held in the old commercial bank building for the purpose of organizing a fire company to protect Mt. Airy and the surrounding territory. The first hurdle of organization had been cleared. But numerous other problems were yet to be confronted: the ever important items of money, firefighting equipment, and a building to house the equipment. Money was solicited from the citizens and a street fair was held which made $633.33. This street fair was later to be enlarged to the annual carnival.
