Patterson Mill Fire Station To Be Dedicated Saturday

The new station is the latest substation of the Bel Air Volunteer Fire Company.

Bel Air will officially gain a new fire station this week, nearly one year after construction began.

Dedication of the Bel Air Volunteer Fire Company's Patterson Mill substation, located at the corner of Maryland Route 924 and Patterson Mill Road, is scheduled to take place at noon Saturday.

Fire company and Harford County government officials will participate in the ceremony with tours of the new facility available after that.

The 9,000-square-foot Patterson Mill Station will be the third active station of the Bel Air Volunteer Fire Company. The main station is located on Hickory Avenue in Bel Air and the second is in Forest Hill on East Jarrettsville Road.

The station is located up the road from Patterson Mill Middle/High School.

Members of the community who have shown staunch opposition to a proposed Walmart location off Maryland Route 924 have cited the new station as a reason the Walmart should go elsewhere, contending Walmart traffic will hinder prompt emergency response times.
