The Takoma Park Volunteer Fire Department was founded in
1894 - the first organized fire department in Montgomery
County. The department has been based at Carroll Ave and
Philadelphia Avenue since 1927, with the current building
opening in 2010. The volunteers of TPVFD work alongside
the career personnel of the Montgomery County Fire and Rescue
Service as both EMTs and firefighters, providing emergency
response to Takoma Park and the wider area. The department
has seen a massive increase in new members recently, making
support for increased training vital.
