Sunday Training at OVFC

How did OVFC 28 spend the first Sunday of 2016?  Training!  We took advantage of the beautiful weather to work on some practical training with Engine 282 and Truck 28.  Truck 28 has a pre-piped waterway mounted under the ladder sections that allow the remote controlled nozzle to flow 1,000 GPM (gallons per minute).  Truck 28 does not have an onboard water supply or pump system so Engine 282 pumps the water from the hydrant so Truck 28 can flow water from the nozzle. This practical training allows our crews to connect the supply lines to the hydrant and between the apparatus, run the pump system, raise and position the ladder and remotely control the nozzle from the ground.  Our crews work safely and efficiently on actual emergency calls because we train hard to be ready when the
community needs us.

In Remembrance: Veronica "Ronnie" Telfer

Veronica "Ronnie" Telfer
 
 

The Odenton Volunteer Fire Company mourns the loss of Veronica "Ronnie" Telfer, 53, loving wife of Capt. Mark Telfer. Ronnie passed away peacefully on November 12th with Mark by her side. Ronnie knew no strangers; She touched the heart of everyone she was around with her smile, kindness and outgoing beautiful personality. She gave of herself freely, without recognition or reward. When Ronnie wasn't serving meals at Pershing Hills Elementary School, she dedicated her time and energy supporting the volunteers and families of the Odenton Volunteer Fire Company.

Along with her parents and loving husband of 25 years, Ronnie is survived by her two children Matthew and Makeli Telfer; two devoted sisters, Kimberly Thomas of Dahlonega, GA and Maray Gonzalez-Ruiz of San Antonio, TX.

The family will receive friends at the Donaldson Funeral Home, 1411 Annapolis Road, Odenton, MD 21113 on Friday, November 20, 2015 from 4:00 pm to 6:00 pm. A Funeral Service will be held at 6:00 pm. Interment will be private.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Odenton Volunteer Fire Company, 1425 Annapolis Road, Odenton, MD 21113.
