1/7/2021: The Hollywood Volunteer Fire Department has released the following statement.

“We were recently notified that some people have been in our local neighborhoods saying they are soliciting for donations to local fire departments. This is NOT the Hollywood Volunteer Fire Department!

If anyone comes to your residence and requests a donation to the fire department, please contact the County Sheriff’s Department or Maryland State Police. Make sure you have a description of any vehicles and the individuals who are soliciting.

Hollywood Volunteer Rescue Squad is currently involved in a fundraiser for family photos. Anyone that is representing their Department MUST have proper identification that should be shown to you. Please ask to see any and all identifications.

Please share this post to let other members of our community know about this incident.”
