David Olsen celebrates 30 Years of Service
The members of the Rock Hall Volunteer Fire Company would like to congratulate David Olsen on 30 years of service. He joined RHVFC in 1989. He trained first as a firefighter, then became an EMT.
Shortly thereafter, David moved to Colorado. He took a job with the Forestry to fight wildfires. Upon his return to Rock Hall, David became very active in helping the residents of his hometown of Rock Hall. His commitment to fire service as a volunteer ultimately led him to a career as a professional fire fighter. David began working as a professional firefighter for the Baltimore City Fire Department in 1999. Shortly thereafter, he became a medic. The experience and knowledge he has gained from his job have benefitted RHVFC as he coordinated many of our drills and trainings.
David is one of our many members who is trained in both fire rescue and EMS. He has served as driver, EMT, and a medic on the ambulance. He has also served as a firefighter, Assistant Chief, Lieutenant, training officer and a member of the board of trustees. We are grateful for his dedication and service to RHFVC and the members of our community!
If you have ever considered serving your community or helping others in their time of need, now is the time to act! RHVFC is looking for volunteers! No experience necessary. There are many roles within our company, both on the front lines and behind the scenes. We provide training and opportunities for classes for those who are interested in becoming firefighters and Emergency Medical Services providers. We are also seeking supporting members to help with fundraising, working at events, maintaining equipment and the firehouse and more. If you have a desire to help others and want to make a difference, please contact us today.
