It was an enlightening and rigorous day joining Governor Wes Moore and my council colleagues for the IAFF’s Baltimore Fire Officers IAFF Local 964 and Baltimore Firefighters IAFF Local 734 Fire Ops 101 training. It was eye-opening to see and feel what our Baltimore City Fire Department heroes go through daily.
I have always been a huge supporter of our first responders, and this experience will forever deepen my appreciation and empathy every time I see an ambulance or fire truck head to the scene of an incident.
P.S. Next time you see a member of the fire department at a convenience store, buy them a bottle of water or Gatorade. Trust me, they need it!”
