County paramedic wins award

Lieutenant has served fire department 41 years

May 17, 2010

Lt. Larry Trump plans to retire this year after 41 years with the Baltimore County Fire Deparment, and on his way he's picking up a state award for his service as a paramedic. Trump, 62, who has served with both the county department and the Owings Mills Volunteer Fire Co., is receiving the Leon W. Hayes Award for Excellence in emergency medical services from the Maryland Institute for Emergency Medical Services Systems. He'll be receiving the award Thursday in Annapolis. A resident of Glyndon now assigned to the Garrison station, Trump became a paramedic in the 1970s. While serving as a district EMS supervisor for 30 years he acted as a mentor to hundreds of paramedics and emergency medical technicians, according to a news release from the county. In 1985, Trump received the Fire Department's Departmental Commendation for rescuing a young boy from a swollen stream.
