Baltimore County’s volunteer firefighters will receive $7 million in county aid during the next year. This includes grants to specific fire companies and subsidies for preventive maintenance, fuel and utilities.

The financial support also includes $1.7 million worth of incentives for 20 volunteer companies that provide medical service during hours of peak demand.

Check Distribution at Bowleys Quarters VFC

County Executive Kevin Kamenetz presented a portion of this money at the September 20 annual meeting of the Baltimore County Volunteer Firemen’s Association (BCVFA). This year’s meeting was hosted by the Bowleys Quarters Volunteer Fire Company.

Baltimore County has a joint fire service that includes 25 career stations and 33 volunteer fire, rescue and EMS companies, as well as two volunteer-run canteen companies that supply food and drink to responders during strenuous incidents. The volunteer companies are independent corporations that raise most of the money needed for their operations through carnivals, bingo, fundraising drives and other activities.

In addition, each year Baltimore County provides millions of dollars in support to the volunteers.

Over the course of the year, the County expects to pay out $1.7 million to the 20 companies that provide medic service. This “attended status” program rewards companies that staff medic units during hours of high demand.

New BCVFA Officers

Also on Saturday, the BCVFA elected new officers for 2014-2015. They are:

President: John McDowell, Arbutus Volunteer Fire Company
Senior Vice President: Glen Resnick, Pikesville Volunteer Fire Company
Vice President, Finance: Jamie Cahn, Lutherville Volunteer Fire Company
Vice President, Operations: Tom Ludwig, Wise Avenue Volunteer Fire Company
Vice President, Administration: Kathy Walker, Cockeysville Volunteer Fire Company
Secretary: Robert Frank, Middle River Ambulance Rescue Company

Interested in being a Baltimore County Firefighter? Baltimore County is now accepting applications for the position of probationary firefighter.

Further information and the on-line application is available at: http://ow.ly/A4Khh

Applications for this position are due by 4:30 p.m. on September 19.

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.
