The Baltimore County Fire Department this fall will conduct two sessions of its five-week emergency preparedness program for citizens.

"Neighbors Helping Neighbors" is a multi-section, all-hazards program that includes interactive lectures and practical instruction. The program is designed to help citizens learn how to help their families and communities get through the first 72 hours following disasters such as tropical storms, blizzards and extended water and power outages.

Experts from local public safety agencies will conduct the training. Topics include natural and technological disasters, fire safety, crime prevention, CPR and first aid, and community preparedness.

Participants are expected to attend a two-hour session once a week for five consecutive weeks. All classes are held on Tuesday evenings, 7 to 9 p.m.

One session begins September 9 at the Providence VFC in Towson. The second session begins October 14 at the Pikesville VFC.

Please register online.

Original release (August 3):

Baltimore County Police are asking for the public's help locating a missing 88-year-old woman from the Pikesville area. Irene Kuperstein was last seen at approximately 5 p.m. after going for a walk near the Reisterstown Road Shopping Center. She is a white female, 5'2", 80 pounds, with brown eyes and gray hair worn in a ponytail. She was last seen wearing a beige and purple windbreaker over a white blouse with an orange and green pattern, dark sweat pants, gray socks and blue sneakers.

Irene Kuperstein has difficulty hearing, and only speaks Polish.

She does not have access to a vehicle or any known direction of travel. She lives in the 6900 block of Marsue Drive, 21208.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Baltimore County Police Department at 410-307-2020. 

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.
