Baltimore County Fire Department hosts 108th recruit class graduation


The Baltimore County Fire Department had its 108th recruit class graduation ceremony Tuesday night at Dundalk High School.

There were 33 recruits graduating in Tuesday’s night ceremony, including 18 women, 9 African Americans, and 13 minority recruits.

The 108th class trained for 19 weeks and will continue training for the next two years, working as probationary emergency medical technicians (PEMTs) and paramedics. The training now expands into the field as they will apply the skills learned in the classroom to complete their training.

Fire Chief John J. Hohman presented the certificates to the graduates.

Circuit Court Judge Julie L. Ensor was there to administer the oath of office, and Rabbi Norman Lowenthal delivered the invocation and benediction.
