Welcome to Dunkirk Volunteers Station 5


The Dunkirk Volunteer Fire Department is a 100% volunteer department located in northern Calvert County, MD. Calvert itself is a small, rural county situated between the Patuxent River to the West and the Chesapeake Bay to the east. The county fire and EMS protection is provided by volunteers as well in each of the departments. Dunkirk protects the northern entry into the county and responds to over 2000 runs a year. We provide Fire, EMS, and Technical Rescue to the citizens of Calvert, Anne Arundel and Prince George's counties. The members of Dunkirk take great pride in the station and apparatus and will continue to serve the citizens for many years to come.
