Hey North Beach and Beyond: North Beach Volunteer Fire Department is seeking new volunteers of all ages. Now is the time to become an important part of our community…YOUR COMMUNITY! As a volunteer, you will learn skills that prepare you to help members of your community when they need it the most.

Think about how rewarding it will be to offer aid to those who call upon you.  Training and gear provided.  Inquire at the firehouse located at 8536 Bayside Road Chesapeake Beach, MD  20732.

Thursday 7.18.19: Lunch and Learn at Chesapeake’s Bounty, 1:00-2:00 pm. This free program for teens and adults is to discuss conservation in our community.  This month’s topic is pollinating our food plants.

Thursday 7.25.19: Cookies and Kids Nature Program at the pavilion on the boardwalk, 1:00-2:00 pm.  Kids ages 4 and up will learn if doodlebugs are a real thing.  Meet some cool bugs and make a clay bug craft to take home.  Limited to 20 participants.

The Town of North Beach became a Sustainable Community in 2012 with the State of Maryland and a Sustainable Maryland certified with the State of Maryland. Both of these programs foster the abilities of towns towards establishing green practices, saving money and taking positive steps in sustaining the quality of life for residents over the long term.

We wanted to further those goals with a work plan with the support of our Environmental Committee and Town Council to launch a Healthy Homes Program. This program, made possible through funding from the Maryland Energy Administration, has been created to assist those most vulnerable, seniors and low-to-moderate income residents, to take part in reducing their carbon footprint. Utility bills are rising and this is a program that will lower your utility bills and allow for more money in your pocket and less money towards paying your utility bills. Our program reaches beyond our boundaries so that residents of Calvert County may apply to make their homes more energy-efficient. 

This funding is limited and if you need any information we will be glad to assist you in filling out your application (file is attached and also available here). Feel free to reach out to us if you need additional information. We can be reached at 301.855.6681 or send an email to

Come out to the North Beach Volunteer Fire Department on August 6, 2019, from 6 to 9 pm for the 2019 National Night Out! Free family fun!
