Wylie Donaldson Jr.
NVFC Lifetime Achievement Award
Award sponsored by Rosenbauer America

Wylie L. Donaldson Jr. joined the Odenton (MD) Volunteer Fire Company in 1952 at the age of 14, following in the footsteps of his father and grandfather, who was a founding member. Throughout his 66 years of continuous service, Donaldson has held every administrative and operational position in the Company, including president from 1968-1974 and chief from 1974-1989. Today, Donaldson remains an instrumental part of the company’s success in his current role as vice president.

In addition, Donaldson has held leadership roles with the Anne Arundel County Volunteer Firefighters Association, including serving as president from 1998-99 and a volunteer representative to the Fire Advisory Board from 1982-1990. During his term as president, he followed a vision of bringing new life to the volunteer fire service and initiated a volunteer cadet program within the Anne Arundel County public school system. Most recently, Donaldson helped lead efforts to greatly enhance the Volunteer Length of Service Award Program (LOSAP) to reward volunteers for their service and provide a retention tool to retain active volunteers.

Donaldson is also an active participant with the Maryland State Firemen’s Association (MSFA). He has served on many committees, most notably as Anne Arundel County’s representative on the MSFA Executive Committee from 1998 until 2012. He presently serves as chair of the Convention Exhibits Committee and as one of the assistant treasurers, acting as the association’s liaison to the Maryland Military Department and overseeing the administration of a $20 million loan program for MSFA member companies.
