The Fifth District Volunteer Fire Department (FDVFD), in an abundance of caution, is cancelling its Country Breakfast scheduled on April 19, 2020. This action is consistent with guidance from Howard County Health Department (HCHD) regarding social distancing. FDVFD remains committed to the safety of our constituents and community members and mitigating the potential to spread the COVID-19 virus during the Breakfast is the paramount concern. There is no indication of contamination from earlier Country Breakfast dates.
The May Country Breakfast has not been cancelled at this time; FDVFD will evaluate as needed.
If you believe you have come into contact with a person exposed to COVID-19, if you feel ill, or have questions, the Howard County Health Department hotline can respond to questions at 410-313-6284. If you are experiencing a medical emergency, call 911.

In July the Fifth District (Clarksville) Volunteer Fire Department (FDVFD) Dive Team had the pleasure of
hosting a Dive Rescue International - Public Safety Humminbird Sonar Training for Marine Law Enforcement, Fire & Rescue.
Eighteen participants attended the training, mainly from Howard County Station 5, Station 11 and James
City County Police in Virginia.
Thanks to the BGE Emergency Response & Safety Grant, FDVFD’s Dive Team was able to purchase Humminbird Side
Scanning Imaging, Down Imaging and 360 degree sonar units for Boat 5 as well as an underwater Metal Detector.
These units will allow the public safety dive team to operate safely and more efficiently by putting divers into the water only after the sonar/metal detectors have detected weapons or victims for retrieval, thereby reducing the time a diver is in the water. Side scan sonar is one of the most effective tools for
underwater searches. It can search large areas quickly and provide detailed images to the surface
operator. ... See MoreSee Less
