New Dry Hydrant at Farm Improves Potomac Valley Fire Company’s Protection of the Region

Tuesday, August 30, 2016 After some hard work there is a new dry hydrant in service at the John Brown Farm on Chestnut Grove Rd in the 11 Box area. Having this new “Dry” Hydrant will improve the amount of water available for use during a fire in the south county.


A very big Thank You to goes out to Deputy Chief Roger Otzelberger Jr., FF Dave Myers and Director Dave Hayes along with several others for helping complete this project. Having another Primary Water Source in South County for Fire Protection goes along way in providing better protection to our citizens who live in the non fire hydrant area’s of south Washington County.


Union Bound New Movie Release. Based on the amazing true story of Joseph Hoover, a Union Soldier who was captured and then aided by slaves and finds freedom.

Union Bound is the amazing true story of Joseph Hoover a Union Soldier who witnessed many incredible moments during the terrible carnage of the CIVIL WAR. He wrote two diaries which survive today. In 1864 he was captured at the battle of the Wilderness and was taken to the notorious camp “Andersonville”. After four months he was transferred to Florence, SC to a new camp. Together with a friend he escaped. They were aided by slaves and what is now known as the “underground railroad” to get to freedom. Joseph was later wounded in the war but survived. After the war he went back to his farm in upstate New York and worked as a cabinet maker. He went on to live to be 84.
