The Savage Volunteer Fire Company, along with the other Volunteer Corporations in Howard County, regularly work EMS at Merriweather Post Pavilion in Columbia. Yesterday however, was a special occasion for Savage. The company was asked by the Howard County Office of The Fire Marshall to bring an Engine Company to Merriweather to standby for the pyrotechnics display at the SweetLife Festival. The Engine Company, staffed with 3 Volunteers, was staged backstage, in the VIP area. In case of emergency during the fireworks display, they were in good positioning to put out the fire. This is just one of many Behind the Scenes way’s that we serve the community.
