Glenmont Fire Station opens today

It's a big day in Glenmont. The first tangible result from the massive interchange project at Georgia Avenue and Randolph Road, the new Glenmont Fire Station 18, is being officially delivered this afternoon, October 26, at 1:00 PM. Montgomery County Executive Ike Leggett will host the ceremony. Refreshments will be served.

Parking will be available at the Wheaton Volunteer Rescue Squad at Georgia and Arcola Avenue; beginning at 12:30 PM, shuttles will transport attendees to the station, where there is no parking(!!).

Handicapped parking is available at the station, however, which is located at 12210 Georgia Avenue.


  1. Does anyone know what will happen with the old Wheaton Rescue station now that the Glenmont firefighters are moving to their new station? Is there a buyer?

  2. Someone responded to my comment by saying Greenberg owned the property. Why is that response gone?

    1. 6:07: I do not recall that comment, but if it was removed, it would have been due to a violation of the comment policy. But, again, I do not recall the comment or deleting any comment. More to the point, the involved properties all belong to the County or SHA. Greenberg owns a portion of the Glenmont Shopping Center across Randolph and Georgia from these sites.

  3. I was referring to the old Wheaton Rescue Squad bldg at Grandview and Blueridge. Thanks
