FREDERICK, Md. -Chip Jewell, director of Frederick County Volunteer Fire and Rescue Services, recently released his second book, "Firefighting in Frederick County."
The 128-page book contains more than 200 pictures and is available in Frederick and Washington counties. Jewell released a similar book about the history of fire companies in Frederick about a year ago.
The second book touches on each of the county's fire companies, with the first historical reference to an 1829 training summons.
"The exact wording of it is really interesting," Jewell said.
The summons requested that John Bader attend required training in Emmitsburg, Md., and asked that he bring "buckets and other requisites for company training."
