Town Representative Sought for Bethesda Fire Department Board of Directors 


The Town is seeking a resident to serve as the Town’s representative on the Bethesda Fire Department’s Board of Directors.  After 20 years of dedicated service, Grant Davies has resigned from this position.  

Our Town counts on the services of the Bethesda Fire Department (BFD) to ensure the safety of our residents.  BFD owns three stations -- Station 6 at Wisconsin and Bradley, Station 20 at Old Georgetown and Cedar Lane, and Station 26 on Democracy Boulevard.  The western half of the Town is in the response area for Station 6.  (The eastern half of the Town is in the response area for Station 7, which is owned by the Chevy Chase Fire Department.)

BFD is one of 19 independent organizations in Montgomery County that owns local fire and rescue stations, staffed with both career and volunteer personnel.  One task that requires immediate action is rebuilding the volunteer capacity at Station 6 so that the ambulance stationed there can be available over night and on weekends. 

The BFD Board is comprised of approximately 15 members -- representatives from communities/citizens associations served by its stations, 3 representatives of the Bethesda Chamber of Commerce, and 10 at-large members.  The Town representative’s primary role is to represent the interests of the Town in the provision of BFD’s public safety services.  Additional roles include participating in twice monthly meetings -- first Thursday Board Meeting and third Thursday Operations meeting.  In addition, Board members are expected to join at least one committee.  The Town’s representative also can fill officer roles if interested.  There is no need to be knowledgeable about fire and rescue services.  Most Board members are people who have an interest in public safety and want to bring their knowledge (e.g., business, legal, philanthropic, community service, etc.) to the benefit of the leadership of the BFD.  

We look forward to having a volunteer who will actively and conscientiously serve on the Board and represent the interests of our Town.  If you are interested in volunteering to serve on the BFD Board, please submit a brief note to the Town Office by January 31.  Your correspondence may be submitted by e-mail to townoffice@townofchevychase.org and should include your name, address, telephone number, e-mail address and a few sentences about why you would like to serve on the Board.
