Baltimore County Police are confirming an investigation into allegations of sexual misconduct at the Reisterstown Volunteer Fire Company in Precinct 3/Franklin.
The investigation began in mid-January, after Baltimore County Fire Department officials became aware of possible misconduct at the Reisterstown VFC and notified police.
Yesterday, the Baltimore County Fire Department suspended without pay two male fire department employees who are also Reisterstown VFC members. Both were suspended after the execution of a search warrant. One is a Probationary Emergency Medical Technician; the other is an EMT/Firefighter. These are non-supervisory positions.
There are 35 volunteer fire companies in Baltimore County that work with the Fire Department to provide fire suppression and EMS services. These volunteer companies are independent corporations with their own boards of directors and command staffs.
The investigation remains ongoing and is expected to conclude within the next few weeks. No charges have been filed at this time.
