The family of Robert Fogle III -- the firefighter who suffered a fatal cardiac arrest last Friday during a training exercise at the Fire-Rescue Academy -- has asked us to share its appreciation for the support from the community at large as well as from the fire community. They request privacy during this time of mourning.

Carol Ann Fogle, the wife of Robert Fogle III, has asked the Baltimore County Fire Department to share the following statement:

We cannot begin to express in adequate words the sincere appreciation and gratitude we are feeling at this most unexpected and difficult time. Be it known that we feel the strength of your thoughts and prayers, and they are most comforting.

We would like to extend a special "thank you" to all who are tirelessly and feverishly working behind the scenes, putting in untold hours to  prepare seamlessly for the final celebration of my husband’s life. This is such a selfless act of kindness and generosity. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

Bob touched so many lives that it is impossible to know the magnitude of grief being felt across the State and nation. His contacts were many beyond the State’s borders.

For those of you who personally knew Bob, we say to you, "thank you," for touching his life as well. We encourage you to embrace any pain of loss you feel from his untimely departure, and then let it go; hold on only to those thoughts and memories that are good.

We personally feel a deep sense of loss. Bob was a wonderful father to Casey and Garrett. He was active in their lives and worked tirelessly to provide them with many rich life experiences so that as adults they are prepared to contribute to their world in a meaningful way.

For me personally, I have not only lost my husband, I have lost my best friend. The grief I feel is numbing, the sorrow I feel is overwhelming.

The love and support from family, friends, the fire community and the community at large – along with our faith – sustains us from day to day.

“Thank you” just does not seem to say enough.

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.
