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.

The week of May 17-23 has been designated National Safe Boating Week. In reality, boat safety should be a year round practice.

Baltimore County has 175 miles of waterfront. We in the county are fortunate to have various boating marinas, docks and parks that supply boat ramps so people can enjoy boating, fishing and other water sports.

If you are a boater or plan on buying a boat, why not plan to take the Maryland Safe Boater Class at Bowleys Quarters Volunteer Fire Department? This state-approved course is required by law for boat operators born after June 1, 1972. Even if you’ve been boating for years, this is a good refresher course, and you might learn something new.

Topics include aids to navigation, state regulations, navigation rules, and the use of emergency equipment. This information helps ensure a safe boating experience this year and in years to come.

Sessions will be held on June 7 and 8, from 9 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. and on June 28 and 29, from 9 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Bowleys Quarters VFD is located at 900 Bowleys Quarters Road, Baltimore, Maryland 21220.

Seating is limited and advance registration is required. Call 410-800-8420 to register and for more information. The class is $35 per student.

Upon completion, you will receive a Maryland Certificate of Boating Safety card.

Make every day a safe boating day.
