August 13, 1996|By From staff reports

TOWSON -- The Guardian Knights, a group of African-American county firefighters dedicated to increasing opportunities for minorities in the local department, will hold a career fair at 7 p.m. Aug. 20 at the Vulcan Blazers hall, 2811 Druid Park Drive, Baltimore.

The fair is intended to find minority applicants, and help them qualify for positions in a county Fire Department recruit class for the job of emergency medical technician. The group feels that minority participation in the county's emergency medical service is limited because of certification requirements that provide more opportunities for volunteer firefighters, who are mostly white.
