Progress Through Unity
The Cumberland Firefighter's Union was chartered as Local #1715 on August 13th 1967. Our 69 members serve the only fully career staffed department in Allegany County, Maryland.
We provide Fire Protection and EMS services for the citizens of the City of Cumberland with 3 crews ( A, B, & C) working a 24/48 work schedule. A work day is 24hrs on duty followed by 48hrs off duty, with a minimum staffing of 13.
In October 2013 we expanded to include the full time ALS providers of the Allegany County Department of Emergency Services.
