In addition under a contract from the county, the department operates a full-time emergency
medical services division with 10 full-time paramedics, 1 intermediate, and 1 basic, two part-time
paramedics, and seven basics, one intermediate, and several volunteers from the fire division as
basics and dispatchers using four advanced life support vehicles and one advanced life support
response vehicle
It takes hours, days, months, and years of dedication and giving of one's self and family to be
known and ranked as "one of the best". It takes a
"special breed" to walk and work beside some of
the best, knowing you may not come home to your family. Your long hours, hard work and
dedication are seldom noticed but are expected to carry on the tradition of the Malta &
McConnelsville Fire Department. The tradition of excellence.

The Badge of a Fire Fighter is the Maltese Cross.The Maltese Cross is a symbol of protection
and a badge of honor. Its story is hundreds of years old.When a courageous band of crusaders
known as The Knights of St. John fought the Saracens for possession of the holy land, they
encountered a new weapon unknown to European warriors. It was a simple, but horrible device of
war. It brought excruciating pain and agonizing death upon the brave fighters for the cross.As the
crusaders advanced on the walls of the city, they were struck by glass bombs containing naphtha.
When they became saturated with the highly flammable liquid, the Saracens would hurl a flaming
torch into their midst. Hundreds of the knights were burned alive; others risked their lives to save
their brothers-in-arms from dying painful, fiery deaths.Thus, these men became our first Fire
Fighters and the first of a long list of courageous men. Their heroic efforts were recognized by fellow
crusaders who awarded each hero a badge of honor - a cross similar to the one fire fighters wear
today. Since the Knights of St. John lived for close to four centuries on a little island in the
Mediterranean Sea named Malta, the cross came to be known as the Maltese Cross.The Maltese
Cross is our symbol of protection. It means that the Fire Fighter who wears this cross is willing to lay
down his life for you just as the crusaders sacrificed their lives for their fellow man so many years
ago. The Maltese Cross is a Fire Fighter's badge of honor, signifying that he works in courage - a
ladder's rung away from death.
