On December 29, 2016 Dfc. Scott Hogan was injured during an encounter with a suspect from a domestic related incident in the Chester Harbor section of our response area. Dfc. Hogan received a gun shot wound to the lower abdomen and the suspect received several gun shot wounds throughout his body. Members of our department arrived and immediately provided patient care to both Dfc. Hogan and the suspect. Upon arrival of incoming EMS units from Queen Anne's County DES EMS and Kent & Queen Anne's Rescue Squad, both patients were further provided EMS care and were taken to an area designated for a landing site for the Maryland State Police helicopters that were inbound.
Dfc. Hogan was transported to the R. Adams Cowley Shock Trauma Center and the suspect taken locally to Shore Health in Chestertown due to his immediate need for medical care because of his declining condition. Unfortunately, the suspect succummed to his injuries while at Shore Health. Dfc. Hogan is still recovering after numerous surgeries related to his wound.
Our members on the scene that night along with EMS providers from Queen Anne's County DES EMS, Kent & Queen Anne's Rescue Squad, Crumpton VFD, Queen Anne's County Sheriff's Office, Chestertown Police Department and the Kent County Sheriff's Office handled the situation like the professionals they are. Although the effort to save both lives in this situation was unsuccessful, the responder's operated as a team in an effort to provide the best emergency medical care to the fullest extent possible.
We would like to congratulate our members on the scene that night with the honor of receiving the "MIEMSS Directors Award For EMS Excellence" for their involvement. The following members were awarded:

Is it 10-12 or 10-2? If we've orders subs online how do we pick them up? It didn't ask for a name or anything when ordering. I paid for the subs but a family member is picking them up.
pick up is 10-2 need to bring receipt if ordered on line
Ok so if you want to walk up and get a sub it's from 10-12 but if you ordered on line you can pick up from 10-2?
the event it 10-2
walk ups are welcome while they last can not guarantee you a sub if do not order on line

Who was it
On a wet dreary evening in April of 2009, the fire service in Queen Anne's County lost a very dedicated volunteer in a tragic accident. Chief Buck Clough died in the Line of Duty while responding in the Sudlersville VFD Chief's Unit to an appliance fire. He is remembered for his valuable knowledge and dedication to his community and county.
The Officer's and Member's of the Church Hill VFD wish to extend our thoughts to the Clough family and all of our Sudlersville brothers and sisters on this difficult day. This tragic event is always a constant reminder of how fast things can happen and how fast a loved one can be lost. Rest easy Chief. ... See MoreSee Less
I love seeing the brotherhood alive and well with remembrance and respect for the fallen. Thank you CHVFD. Our family is grateful. God speed.
Well said CHVFD. Buck was a great people person. Terrible loss for his family and the community.
I still responded to this call. God bless.
HERO god bless
