Vigilant Hose Company members took part in the Frederick County Volunteer Fire Rescue Association awards program Monday evening in Walkersville. Several members brought home awards. We are very proud of these individuals and their contributions to the VHC, and all of our members each and every day. 2017 was an amazing year for the VHC with the successful merger with the VHC and Emmitsburg Volunteer Ambulance Company. Members worked incredibly hard all year serving the great people of Emmitsburg and surrounding communities.
