Rescue squad serves breakfast, hosts bunny


A young child screams gleefully after finally meeting the Easter Bunny at the annual pre-Easter event at the Prince Frederick Volunteer Rescue Squad.

Prince Frederick, MD - The members of the Prince Frederick Volunteer Rescue Squad (Company 4) continued their popular pre-Easter tradition Saturday, March 19. The squad hosted the annual Breakfast with the Easter Bunny at their headquarters on southbound Route 2/4.

During the three-hour event volunteers cooked up and served several pounds of America’s favorite breakfast food—including bacon, sausage, eggs, pancakes, waffles and fried hash brown potatoes.

The youngsters visited with the Easter Bunny, posing for pictures. Parents could purchase tickets for the bike raffle.

Additionally, the crews from Company 4 gave children tours of their ambulances.

The Prince Frederick Volunteer Rescue Squad, which celebrated its 50th anniversary last year, responds to as many as 2,000 calls every year. Their service is provided 24/7 and none of the responders are paid for their service. Company 4, with an annual county government allocation of approximately $80,000, relies of funds raised at events such as Breakfast with the Easter Bunny to remain in operation. They are always looking for new volunteers.  Benefits for volunteers include tuition benefits, daycare assistance, Length of Service Award Programs (retirement/pension) and free training.

If you are interested in becoming a Company 4 volunteer contact them at 410-535-9836.
