The Hereford Volunteer Fire Company was organized in June of 1924 and is located in Northern Baltimore County, Maryland just minutes from Exit 27 off Interstate 83.  We provide fire protection over a very diverse area of the county from single family dwellings to apartments, farm land to light industry, and from Interstate highways to dense wooded areas around the watershed.  Our fleet of emergency equipment consists of two  Engines/Tankers, a 3000 gallon Tanker Truck, Tanker Support Unit, Brush Unit, Special Unit and an ATV Unit.  We are a fully volunteer company and stand ready to respond at any time.   We are members of the


Baltimore County Volunteer Firefighters Association



as well as the

Maryland State Volunteer Fireman's Association.



If you are in the area please feel free to stop by and say Hello.

In Memory of


Edwina (Hope) Bilger

July 1, 1933 to June 24, 2020


It is with deep sadness that the Officers and Members of the Hereford Volunteer Fire Company announce the passing of Life Member Edwina (Hope) Bilger.  Hope joined the Hereford Fire Company on October 28, 1985.  Hope held the office of Chaplain from 1988 to 1994.  Hope could always be found at most fundraising events from Oyster & Turkey Supper to Crab, Shrimp Feast, Bull and Oyster Roasts to Spaghetti Dinners.  You could find her at the Fall Festival in October selling Pit Beef sandwiches.  Hope was also a Life Member of the Hereford Volunteer Fire Company’s Ladies Auxiliary.  Hope served as President, Vice President, Secretary and Treasurer of the auxiliary and chairperson on several committees for the auxiliary over her many years of service.


Hope was a Life Member, EMT / IVT with Hereford EMS before joining the Hereford Fire Company.


Hope was recognized by Baltimore County Volunteer Fireman's Association and inducted into their Hall of Fame in 2013.


Hope always enjoyed attending the Maryland State Fireman’s Association annual convention in Ocean City, Maryland.


Hope will be Greatly Missed by the members of the Hereford Volunteer Fire Company and Ladies Auxiliary.


Rest In Peace Hope we will take it from here.


In lieu of flowers donations in Hope’s name can be sent to the:
