The Baltimore County Fire Department this fall will conduct two sessions of its five-week emergency preparedness program for citizens.

"Neighbors Helping Neighbors" is a multi-section, all-hazards program that includes interactive lectures and practical instruction. The program is designed to help citizens learn how to help their families and communities get through the first 72 hours following disasters such as tropical storms, blizzards and extended water and power outages.

Experts from local public safety agencies will conduct the training. Topics include natural and technological disasters, fire safety, crime prevention, CPR and first aid, and community preparedness.

Participants are expected to attend a two-hour session once a week for five consecutive weeks. All classes are held on Tuesday evenings, 7 to 9 p.m.

One session begins September 9 at the Providence VFC in Towson. The second session begins October 14 at the Pikesville VFC.

Please register online. 

The annual meeting of the Baltimore County Local Emergency Planning Committee is scheduled for Thursday, September 18 in Lutherville.

The meeting, open to the public, will be held at Brooklandville Fire Station 14, 10017 Falls Road, 21093.

The meeting will last about one hour.

The LEPC - comprising community leaders, business leaders and local fire, police, EMS and emergency management responders - meets regularly to develop and review contingency and evacuation plans for emergencies involving hazardous materials. these may include weather disasters, industrial/transportation accidents and terrorist attacks.

LEPCs are required under the federal Superfund Amendments and Reauthorization Act of 1986. There are LEPCs across the U.S.

UPDATE (July 2):

Baltimore Environmental Police have charged two men in connection with an incident on Sunday at Prettyboy Dam.

From Baltimore City Public Works:

http://publicworks.baltimorecity.gov/PublicInformation/PressReleases/tabid/2382/articleType/ArticleView/articleId/5438/Two-Charged-After-Landing-at-Base-of-Prettyboy-Dam.aspx

Original release (June 30):

Two young men were injured yesterday -- one seriously -- after they apparently went over the Prettyboy Dam.

At about 7:15 p.m. Sunday, a BCoFD medic unit was dispatched for a report of an injured person at the Prettyboy Dam. At the top of the dam, fire crews met a witness who told them  that at least one person had just gone over the dam. Fire personnel climbed down to the bottom of the dam, a steep climb down trails and numerous steps.

At the bottom of the dam, crews found an adult male patient, visibly injured, who led him to a friend. The friend was conscious but seriously injured.

Fire personnel found damaged kayaks at the base of the dam. The Baltimore Environmental Police, responsible for enforcing watershed laws and regulations, also were dispatched and were the first on scene; their investigation of this incident continues. (Prettyboy and the other two reservoirs located in Baltimore County are owned by Baltimore City.)

The more seriously injured patient was transported by Trooper 1 to the R. Adams Cowley Shock Trauma Center. Fire personnel carried him in a Stokes basket from the bottom of the dam to the top of the dam, where the helicopter had landed. Rescuers used a rope hauling system to assist with the carry during the first and most treacherous part of the climb to the top of the dam.

The less seriously injured patient was transported by ground to the trauma center of York (Pa.) Hospital.

Between 15 and 20 pieces of equipment responded to this call, including several Carroll County units that provided mutual aid.
