If you have driven by the station located at 101 High Street in New Windsor, you will notice we have changed our exterior lights to red. This is to help honor those firefighters who have made the supreme sacrifice while serving others and have died in the line of duty. The red lights at the station will remain in place through the night of October 9th, 2022 to help memorialize and remember those who have died in the line of duty.

The New Windsor Fire Department would encourage all residents of New Windsor to help light the night red and remember those who have died in the line of duty while serving others.

The firefighters from Maryland that will be honored in this year’s National Memorial Services in Emmitsburg, MD on October 9, 2022 include:

• Nicholas C. Finamore – Prince George’s County Fire/EMS Department
• Joshua D. Laird – Frederick County Division of Fire and Rescue Services
