Would Be Deployed to Locations Across the County as Needed

Baltimore County Executive Johnny Olszewski today requested Maryland National Guard support in Baltimore County to provide humanitarian and emergency management assistance to County government as it continues to respond to the COVID-19 pandemic.

“We’ve asked for the Guard’s help to support our County’s evolving response to this unprecedented pandemic,” Olszewski said. “These are neighbors from our communities who are here to support us all during this uncertain time. We’ll continue to work hand-in-hand with our partners across the state to provide assistance to our communities, reduce the spread of the virus and save lives.”

Earlier this month, Governor Hogan mobilized the Maryland National Guard to respond to various missions statewide, including addressing local government needs.

The Maryland National Guard would support food distribution operations at school and recreational sites throughout Baltimore County and provide additional planning and logistical support to enhance the County’s emergency response.

National Guard forces would be staged at the Timonium Fairgrounds and then be deployed to locations across the County as needed.


Honor County Telecommunicators April 14 Through 20

Every year, 911 calltakers and dispatchers around the country are honored during National Public Safety Telecommunicators Week—a week-long recognition of their commitment to public safety.

From April 14 through 20, we pay tribute to the vital work these civilian men and women perform, as well as their unending spirit to serve our community. Baltimore County Emergency Telecommunicators are no different. These unsung heroes are the men and women working behind the scenes, taking your calls and working with Emergency Medical Services, Fire and Police units to send the right help to the right location. As such, telecommunicators are called the “first of the first responders.”

It’s no secret that 911 emergency personnel work in a stressful environment—they work with frightened or traumatized callers and deal with life-and-death situations every day—and that’s a lot of responsibility to shoulder.

Learn more about the work our calltakers and dispatchers do.
