The 103rd Recruit Class of the Baltimore County Fire-Rescue Academy will graduate tonight, June 25, at 7 p.m. The ceremony will be held at Loch Raven High School, 1212 Cowpens Avenue, Towson, MD 21286.

Deputy Administrative Officer Donna Morrison, representing County Executive Kevin Kamenetz, and Fire Chief John Hohman will address the class and award the diplomas.

The graduating class comprises 36 recruits – 14 women and 22 men – who have trained as emergency medical technicians and paramedics. They will serve as paramedics and probationary emergency medical technicians in the EMS division for two years.

The recruits began training March 24 at the Fire-Rescue Academy in Sparrows Point and have completed 18 weeks of training. Their instruction includes: emergency vehicle operation, hazardous materials, basic firefighting skills, self-contained breathing apparatus, EMT skills, Fire Department operations, CPR, intravenous therapy, safety and various topics related to basic and advanced medical care.

This week marks the eighth year for the Youth Leadership Academy (YLA) program.

The YLA program fosters and encourages teens to be future leaders in and out of the community. They will develop and foster leadership skills, while meeting and having fun with like-minded peers.

The days begin at 8 a.m. and end at 3 p.m. During those hours YLA members are busy learning the many aspects of police work and the mental strength needed to be an officer and leader.

They will visit various locations such as the:

  • Police Training Academy on the Baltimore County Community College campus in Dundalk
  • Park School (Falls and Old Court Roads)
  • Middle River Volunteer Fire Company, across from Martin State Airport

Each location brings a new element to the learning experience.

Twenty-seven teens are attending this year’s Youth Leadership Academy. A graduation ceremony will be held on Saturday, June 28 at the Public Safety Building.


The 33rd Citizens’ Academy graduation will take place tonight, June 10, 6:30 p.m., at the Public Safety Building, 700 East Joppa Road 21286.

Police Chief James Johnson will present certificates to the 26 graduates who completed the 15-week program. During that time, participants learned about the various units and the many aspects of law enforcement. Officers from specialized units such as K-9, Marine, Aviation and Tactical Operations spoke to the participants and described their duties.

The citizen students learned about the precincts, narcotics identification and investigation. They sat in on lectures that covered media relations, criminal investigations, as well as residential and Homeland security. They went to the firing range, where they learned about the use of force and the department’s policy on the use of firearms.

The purpose of the Citizens’ Academy is to foster greater communication and relationships between the Department, the community, and businesses, as well as to promote a better understanding of law enforcement.
