Prince Frederick, MD- The Calvert County Board of County Commissioners held a groundbreaking on Monday, August 6, 2019, for the new Prince Frederick Volunteer Fire Department Company 2 building. The $9.5 million, 29,929-square-foot facility will replace the current facility, which was constructed in 1960. 

The current building has undergone renovations and additions since it was built, but a complete reconstruction is required in order to provide our volunteer personnel with the perfect space to train and work comfortably. Company 2 will operate from the Prince Frederick Armory during demolition and construction. The new facility is scheduled for completion by spring 2021.

“We are thrilled to be breaking ground for the new Company 2 building and to provide this space for the roughly 100 volunteers who man the station,” said Board President Thomas E. “Tim” Hutchins.

The Southern Maryland Chronicle is a local, small business entrusted to provide factual, unbiased reporting to the Southern Maryland Community. While we look to local businesses for advertising, we hope to keep that cost as low as possible in order to attract even the smallest of local businesses and help them get out to the public. We must also be able to pay employees(part-time and full-time), along with equipment, and website related things. We never want to make the Chronicle a “pay-wall” style news site.

To that end, we are looking to the community to offer donations. Whether it’s a one-time donation or you set up a reoccurring monthly donation. It is all appreciated. All donations at this time will be going to furthering the Chronicle through hiring individuals that have the same goals of providing fair, and unbiased news to the community. For now, donations will be going to a business PayPal account I have set-up for the Southern Maryland Chronicle, KDC Designs. All business transactions currently occur within this PayPal account. If you have any questions regarding this you can email me at

Thank you for all of your support and I hope to continue bringing Southern Maryland the best news possible for a very long time. — David M. Higgins II
