This annual memorial ceremony honors career and volunteer firefighters, emergency medical personnel, ladies’ auxiliary members and other fire service members who passed away during the year.

Fire Chief John Hohman is scheduled to attend and participate in laying a wreath to honor the members lost during the past year.

Remembering Firefighter Robert Fogle III, Others

This year, the Fire Service remembers 22 career and 20 volunteer members, including FADO Robert Fogle III, a 27-year veteran of the Baltimore County Fire Department, stationed at Pikesville Station 2. He also volunteered for more than 30 years at Pleasant Valley Community Fire Company, and was a past member of Taneytown Volunteer Fire Company.

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 ceremony will be held, rain or shine, at 2 p.m. at the Fire Service Memorial Monument in Patriot Plaza in Towson. Uniformed members should assemble at 1:30 p.m.

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

Honoring Fallen Heroes

Forty-four Baltimore County firefighters and emergency medical personnel have died in the line of duty. These include 20 career members and 24 volunteer members.

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

The shrine was built entirely with funds raised by members of the Fire Service. It 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 words of Saint John, 15:13: “Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.”
