It was discovered that a member of the Company 7 Alarmers had fraudulently obtained and used Alarmers funds for personal gain. Immediately upon discovery, a law enforcement investigation was launched and the individual was suspended from the organization.

St. Leonard Volunteer Fire and Rescue, Company 7 Inc. and the Company 7 Alarmers are cooperating fully with the Calvert County Sheriff’s Office and the State’s Attorney. It is important to note that the Alarmers funds are separate from the St. Leonard Volunteer Fire and Rescue, Company 7 Inc. funds.

We are shocked by this revelation and understand that this will cause concern among friends and neighbors, who have generously supported the St. Leonard Volunteer Fire and Rescue, Company 7 Inc. and the Alarmers for more than 30 years.

The Alarmers assists in providing our volunteer fire and rescue personnel with the supplies and equipment they need to safely serve and protect all in our beloved community.
