Prince Frederick, MD- Demolition has begun on the Prince Frederick Fire Department.

The temporary location is the Old National Guard Armory complex located on Armory Road – between Dares Beach Road and Steeple Chase Drive. PFVFD will be fully operational from the Armory Road location effective 7 p.m. on August 8, 2019.

During this period, we ask the public to be on heightened alert for increased responding emergency vehicle activity in areas that were not previously typical. These include Armory Road between Steeple Chase Drive and Dares Beach Road, the Dares Beach/Armory Road traffic circle, Dares Beach Road/Route 4 intersection, and Steeple Chase Drive/Route 4 intersection.

The Calvert County Board of County Commissioners held a groundbreaking on Monday, August 6, 2019, for the new Prince Frederick Volunteer Fire Department Company 2 building. The $9.5 million, 29,929-square-foot facility will replace the current facility, which was constructed in 1960.

The new facility is scheduled for completion by spring 2021.
