Today there are a total of 14 volunteer fire companies in the county.  In addition to the initial six companies that formed the association in 1923: The Mount Airy Volunteer Fire Company began organizing in 1921; Pleasant Valley Community Fire Company, 1931; Sykesville Freedom District Fire Company, 1933; and the New Windsor Fire and Hose Company No. 1 first came into being in 1908 and re-organized in 1948.
