Last week's Central County Neighbors column incorrectly reported that the Earleigh Heights Volunteer Fire Company owns the paramedic unit based there and pays for a driver and a firefighter on its staff.

In fact, while the company purchased and owns its firefighting equipment, the paramedic unit at Earleigh Heights was purchased and is owned and maintained by the county. In addition, two professional firefighters and two paramedic crew members are on duty there at all times -- a total of 12 employees who work for and are paid by Anne Arundel County.

The Earleigh Heights company includes 34 active volunteer firefighters who respond to emergency calls, and more than 100 other members who assist in its efforts.

The Sun regrets the errors.
