Family Not Permitted to Ride in Medic Units

Effective immediately, Baltimore County Fire Department medic units and ambulances will not allow family members to ride with patients to local hospitals. This change is necessary because all Baltimore area hospitals have limited or completely restricted visitor access as a safety measure during the novel coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic.

In rare instances and depending on the patient’s circumstances, BCoFD will transport a family member with the understanding that the family member will remain outside the hospital, pending direction by hospital staff.

BCoFD appreciates the public’s patience as we work through these tough times.
