It is with deepest regret that the Officers and Members of the Rock Hall Volunteer Fire Company announce the passing of Inactive Life Member Gary W. Jones.
Gary joined the Rock Hall Volunteer Fire Company in December of 1976. He held numerous positions including - Fire engineer, Lieutenant, Captain, Assistant Chief and Chief, Ambulance Captain, and administrative offices of Treasurer, Recording Secretary, Corresponding Secretary, and President as well as Board of Director. He was one of the first ALS providers in Rock Hall serving as a Certified Rescue Technician. He was also an instructor for MFRI and MIEMSS. One of the classes he taught was EMT.
On one of the Popes prior visits to the United States (prior to this year), Gary provided an EMS crew and ambulance from Rock Hall to stand by at BWI.
He was also one of the first in Kent County to do incident command.
Many would say Gary was a true leader and a great mentor. He will be missed by family, friends and members of the Rock Hall Volunteer Fire Company.
