On Friday, July 24, 2020, under the threat of rain, although a double rainbow appeared during the ceremony, the Second District Volunteer Fire Department & Rescue Squad, Inc. held the Groundbreaking Ceremony for their new Fire/EMS station. The new station will be located on Piney Point Road, directly adjacent to the existing station.

Mr. Keith Fairfax, Past President and Chief of the Bay District VFD received thanks for his continuous support and assistance.
