emory The Officers and Members of the Frostburg Fire Department (FFD) ask that you help us celebrate the “Length of Service” anniversary of Emory D. Lancaster.

Emory joined the FFD on October 22, 1957 and has faithfully served the Department, City and surrounding communities continuously for more than 57 years. He is the oldest surviving member of the Department and has served more years than any other member.

During his volunteer fire service career he attended numerous fire training courses offered through the Maryland Fire Rescue Institute (MFRI) and served as a FFD Fire Captain, Assistant Chief and Trustee. Emory also served on numerous committees during his career. He was certified to drive all of the Department’s fire apparatus and was given the distinct Fireman of the Year award in 2006.

Emory is a charter member of the Frostburg Area Ambulance Service (FAAS) and was one of the first EMT’s to serve that organization. He also is a charter member of the Allegany County Fire Police Association and served as a Volunteer Fire Police Officer for many years.

At the 2013 Maryland State Fireman’s Association (MSFA) convention, Emory was also awarded the Governor’s Citation from the State of Maryland recognizing his 57 years dedicated of service.

Together with his two sons and grandson, the Lancaster family proudly boasts 137 years of volunteer fire service to MD fire departments.

Thank you Emory! We appreciate ALL that you do.
