Firefighter/Paramedic/EMTBaltimore County

The Baltimore County Fire Department provides fire protection, emergency medical and emergency rescue to the county’s 754,000 citizens. Baltimore County covers an area of 610 square miles. Located in central Maryland, it surrounds the city of Baltimore on three sides and extends from the Chesapeake Bay in the southeast to Pennsylvania in the north. The Fire Department serves a diverse area, including heavy industrial areas, small towns, suburban neighborhoods and farmland. The northern two-thirds of the county is almost exclusively rural, with denser suburban populations and industrial areas located, east to west, in a horseshoe surrounding Baltimore City. 

The department includes more than 1,000 paid emergency response personnel, housed at 25 career stations. These career responders work at fire and rescue scenes alongside volunteer firefighters from the county’s 33 volunteer fire companies. More than 2,000 citizens volunteer in the fire service as active responders, fundraisers and support personnel. Though volunteer companies are independent, private corporations, Baltimore County has a true joint fire service, with dedicated career and volunteer responders working together at emergency scenes every day on behalf of our citizens. 

In 2013, Baltimore County firefighters and emergency medical technicians responded to more than 125,000 incidents. More than 95,000 of those incidents were EMS/medical calls. Apparatus available to serve county citizens include: *88 engines (28 career and 60 volunteer) *10 trucks (6 career, 4 volunteer) *3 tower ladders (2 career, 1 volunteer) *A state-of-the-art, urban search-and-rescue unit *A decontamination unit *Five large-capacity tankers for rural firefighting *Various brush and squad units *Ten career engine companies have advanced life support capabilities; these are strategically located throughout the county. Volunteer companies operate the county’s nine heavy rescue squads. 

An Advanced Tactical Rescue team, housed at Texas Station #17, is specially trained for unusually difficult, complex rescues, such as building collapses, water rescues, trench rescues and high-rise rescues. After 9/11, the County purchased a state-of-the-art urban search-and-rescue vehicle, equipped to handle building collapses, water rescues, trench rescues and other tactical emergencies.
