It was a record-breaking year for Kingsville Volunteer Fire Company, which celebrated Saturday its 57th year of service to Baltimore and Harford County area residents.

Kingsville volunteers broke a record this year for the number of emergency medical calls they responded to: 1,349. Coupled with 1,035 fire calls, volunteers responded to almost 2,400 calls in 2010.

“This would not have been possible if it wasn’t for the unselfish dedication of our members who graciously donate many hours of time away from their personal lives to accomplish this endeavor,” EMS 1st Lt. Timothy Berkeridge wrote in his comments in the program.

“Kingsville Volunteer Fire Company is the true meaning of what volunteerism is all about,” he wrote.

Kingsville Capt. Ed Griffiths said the future of the fire company is in good hands.

“Our future is our younger members, aka ‘the children.’ These ‘children,’ if you will, have developed into young men and women who have achieved high levels of both academic and professional accomplishments in the fire, EMS and rescue service,” Griffiths wrote.

The top 10 fire responders for 2010 were Salvatore Rivieri II, 655 calls; Joseph Greely, 522; Christopher Baier, 388; Gary Weer, 383; Shane Hubbe, 364; Michael Griffiths, 344; Alexander Kelly, 334; Justin Ricks, 325; Nicholas Sayler, 314; and Jeffrey Weer, 287.

The top 10 EMS responders for 2010 were Kellie Cooke, 649 calls; John Cooke, 509; Michael Podles, 477; Timothy Berkeridge, 235; Aaron Plumley, 231; Alexander Kelly, 224; Emily Dilworth, 161; G. Robert O’Hara, 142; Seth Torbit, 136; and Michael Griffiths, 105.

Receiving life-member service awards were Charles Taylor Jr. and Gary Weer, 45 years; Charles Sayler and J. Kelly Berkeridge, 35 years; Albert Dilworth, David Bowman and Terry Berkeridge, 30 years; Donald Coster III and Terry Heil, 25 years; Lisa Dilworth, Craig Sweet, Jeffrey Weer and Scott Taylor, 15 years; Victoria Clayton, 10 years; and Michael Griffiths, five years.

The top 10 fundraisers for 2010 were Rita Sayler, 339 hours; Elizabeth Linde, 243; Brian Bower, 224; Salvatore Rivieri II, 175; Ronald Hale, 131; Karen Sayler, 113; Bernice Kuehne, 109; Seth Torbit, 102; Joshua List, 100; and Cheryl Otradovec, 90.

Officers for 2011 are Stuart Miller, president; Stephen Belkoff, vice president; Rita Sayler, corresponding secretary; Scott Taylor, recording secretary; Victoria Clayton, treasurer; Raymond Corbin Jr., sergeant-at-arms; Ronald Cassett Sr., chaplain; and Daniel Conte, John Cromwell Jr., Albert Dilworth and Joshua List, board of directors.

Fire and rescue officers for 2011 are Michael Berna, captain, Jeffrey Weer, senior lieutenant; Donald Coster III, Ronald Hale and Gary Weer, first lieutenants; Shane Hubbe, Michael Griffiths, Frank Deems III and Salvatore Rivieri II, second lieutenants; and Albert Dilworth, engineer.
