A memorial visitation for Baltimore County firefighter Robert Fogle III will be held at the Pleasant Valley Community Fire Company (near Westminster) on Wednesday, June 4, 2 to 8 p.m. Funeral services also will be held at the Pleasant Valley Community Fire Company on Thursday, June 5 at 10 a.m.

While Fogle will receive full Fire Service honors, the Fogle family has not chosen a full, ceremonial funeral; there will be no interment and no procession.

The Pleasant Valley Fire Community Company is located at 2030 South Pleasant Valley Road, 21158. 

Fogle, 58, held the rank of Fire Apparatus Driver Operator (FADO). He went into cardiac arrest during a training exercise Friday afternoon at the Fire-Rescue Academy in Sparrows Point, and was transported to Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center where he was pronounced deceased.
 
FADO Fogle is a 27-year veteran of the Baltimore County Fire Department, stationed at Pikesville Station #2. 

A Westminster resident, he volunteered for more than 30 years at the Pleasant Valley Community Fire Co. He was a past member of the Taneytown Volunteer Fire Co.

Fogle also was a fire/rescue instructor with the Maryland Fire and Rescue Institute.

He is survived by his wife, Carol Ann, and two adult children, Garrett W. Fogle and Casey J. Fogle, both of Westminster.

Investigation

BCoFD standard operating procedures call for an internal investigation for all line-of-duty deaths. An internal investigation team is being assembled.

The National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health also investigates most fire service deaths. A preliminary conference with representatives from Maryland Occupational Safety and Health has taken place, and BCoFD will cooperate fully as the process continues.

The Baltimore County Fire Department will honor a fallen firefighter and first responders and civilians who  have performed exceptionally at  its annual Promotional  and Commendations Ceremony, scheduled  tomorrow, March 11, at  Goucher College's Kraushaar Auditorium.

The ceremony will begin at 7 p.m.

Besides awarding deserving first  responders and civilians,  this evening also will recognize 55 Fire Department members who have been promoted during the past year and 31 graduates of the 102nd Recruit Class of Probationary Firefighters. Graduation ceremonies for the 102nd class originally planned last January were postponed due to inclement weather.

County Executive Kevin Kamenetz and Fire Chief John Hohman are scheduled to speak.

Highlights of the awards portion of the program:

  • Recognition  of Reisterstown Volunteer Fire Co. Firefighter Gene Kirchner, who died of injuries suffered while trying to rescue a person trapped in an April  24, 2013 Reisterstown house fire.  Kirchner, 25, last spring was posthumously  presented the Medal of Honor -- the Fire Department's highest honor -- and the Purple Heart.
  • A Baltimore County police officer from the North Point Precinct will receive the Fire Department’s third highest award, the Bronze Star, for rescuing a man from a building fire in Dundalk.
  • Several citizens will receive awards. These include two women in Garrison who saved a person from choking; a boy in Eastview who called 911 and helped save his mother; a man in Rosedale who evacuated a warehouse following a train crash and explosion; a Parkville lifeguard who saved an infant by performing CPR; a woman in Perry Hall who saved the life of her neighbor by performing CPR; and a Parkton man who saved a man in cardiac arrest by performing CPR.
  • Crews from Dundalk, Eastview, Wise Avenue, Edgemere and North Point Edgemere will be recognized for rescuing 14 residents trapped in an apartment fire.
  • Crews from Golden Ring and Eastview that were the first on the scene of a train derailment and explosion in Rosedale will be honored.
