On May 16, the Baltimore County Fire Department will distribute and install free smoke alarms as part of an initiative sponsored by the Greater Chesapeake Region Chapter of the American Red Cross.

At least 35 Red Cross volunteers will form teams to visit the Sandy Plains area in Dundalk – Kavanagh Road, Lynch Road and surrounding streets. Each team will include a firefighter from the Baltimore County Fire Department, who will install the smoke alarms.

The smoke alarms and valuable safety information will be distributed to individuals and families in need. There is no limit on the number of smoke detectors these households may request.

The volunteers and firefighters will begin at 9 a.m. and work until noon.

Smoke alarms are the single most important fire prevention step you can take. In many fires, you have as little as two minutes to escape before smoke and heat make escape impossible.

The ceremony will be held, rain or shine, at 2 p.m. at the Fire Service Memorial Monument in Patriot Plaza in Towson.

The Baltimore County Fire Department and Baltimore County Volunteer Fireman’s Association jointly organize the event.

Honoring Fallen Heroes

Forty-five Baltimore County firefighters and emergency medical personnel have died in the line of duty. These include 21 career members and 24 volunteer members.

Fire Chief John Hohman and other career and volunteer fire service leaders will honor the fallen by placing a wreath on the memorial shrine during the ceremony.

The shrine was built entirely with funds by members of the Fire Service. The memorial was sculpted in Portugal of Portuguese red granite, and consists of a Maltese cross flanked by two columns.

Inscribed on the monument are the names of the fallen and the words of Saint John, 15:13: “Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.”

The 105th Recruit Class of the Baltimore County Fire-Rescue Academy graduated last night in a ceremony held at Dundalk High School, 1901 Delvale Avenue, 21222.

This graduating class comprises 20 recruits, including 13 men and 7 women. The recruits graduate as Probationary Emergency Medical Technicians (EMTs).

Fire Chief John Hohman and Fire Director Jennifer Aubert-Utz presented the recruits with their diplomas.
