Capitol Heights Volunteer Fire Department
UPDATED: October 3, 2014 - 1749 hours
Since April 2014, the members of the Capitol Heights Volunteer Fire Department and career staff from Station 5 have visited over 1,000 homes in our first due response area to install smoke alarms. The alarms, new 10 year long life battery smoke alarms, were provided by a Fire Prevention and Safety grant from FEMA/DHS to the Capitol Heights Volunteer Fire Department.
On September 27, 2014 George Adams was inducted into the Founders' Circle at the Cranford-Graves Fire Service Building. Just weeks before, the Capitol Heights Volunteer Fire Department lost member Richard Ager, George's grandson, who was one of several Adam's family members involved with the department. Members of the department stood in for Richard, and along with grandson Al Adams, we celebrated the accomplishments of our first leader.
