Sabrina presented a check for $1,707.50 from the Aug 11- Sept 11 sales of the Red Heroes cups. Mission BBQ has been a huge supporter of the Foundation and we thank them for all that they do!
Around 10pm on Monday, September 19, 2022, Engine Co. 53 was on scene of an EMS call in Southwest Baltimore. During patient care, EMT/FF Wilson suffered a medical emergency. Additional units were summoned and the other firefighters immediately began caring for their crew mate as well as the initial patient. Wilson’s heart had stopped beating and CPR was started. Once paramedics arrived, they began advanced level care and were able to regain a pulse. Wilson was transported to University of Maryland Medical Center in critical condition. He has been in the hospital since the event and after a long battle, passed away October 30, 2022. EMT/Firefighter Wilson was 34 years old and an 11 year veteran of the Baltimore City Fire Department. He was assigned to Engine Co. 53 in Edmondson Village. Services are pending. All BCFD fire stations will half-staff the departmental flag until sunset day of the funeral. We ask that you pray for the Wilson family, friends of Juan’s, and those affected by his untimely passing.
