Yeas of Service Awards
Ron joined the Hereford Volunteer Fire Company on March 22, 1988. In his 30 years as a member he has held Fire Line offices and Administrative positions including Vice President and President. As President he appointed a team to revise our out dated By-laws. Ron has taken on the demanding challenge of keeping our LOSAP information current. Ron is also very active with Summit Manor hall rentals.
Herb joined The Hereford Volunteer Fire Company on May 22, 1978. Herb has held numerous Administrative and Fire Line offices in his time with us. One cold and snowy day many years ago as we returned from a call we noticed a car on the apron in front of the station. It only took a minute to discover a very, very pregnant lady in the car. Herb jumped into action and within minutes delivered a baby girl. I kind of think she would be in her 30’s now.
Herb decided to make a career as a firefighter with Baltimore County Fire Department. He was appointed to the department on April 4, 1981, rising to the rank of Lieutenant and retired December 30, 2006.
Phil joined the Hereford Volunteer Fire Company on January 1, 1964. In his 55 years Phil has held numerous Fire Line offices including Chief and he has served several times on the Board of Directors. On a couple of occasions he has chaired the Turkey & Oyster Supper committee. Phil is a good painter and has volunteered to paint things including the tin roof on the old building. More recently he has painted things around the station like the Dayroom, Hallway and has even tacked the Summit Manor a couple of times. Phil is also a great help with the Summit Manor Team.
Phil made a career as a career Firefighter with Baltimore County Fire Department. Phil was appointed to BCFD on November 28th, 1964 and retired on February 1, 1991 after 27 years of service at the rank of Battalion Chief. Before joining Hereford Fire Phil was a member of Cockeysville which he joined in 1961. And Butler?
Thomas (Mike) Hoshall
60 years of service or well over 23,000 days or 552,000 hours what and accomplishment.
Mike joined the Hereford Volunteer Fire Company when he was in his early 20’s on May 1, 1958. Mike has held the offices of Engineer and Assistant Engineer in the 70’s and has severed on the Board of Directors several times in his 60 years with the company. Mike also looks after our water treatment system. On hot spring and summer days Mike makes sure that there is a cooler of ice water on the equipment. Mike gets up early each morning and enjoys a coffee with Smokey at the station.
This is the first time in several years that Mike is not our Top Responder but is still in the top 3.
