    EPISODE 226: Fire chief Rund tells us about complexity of EMS role in time of COVID

    With our emergency services being pushed to the limit during the pandemic, we thought we’d learn more about how the chiefs of fire and police are handing the new challenges.

    Baltimore County has the rare distinction of having a female fire chief and police chief and we believed it was time to get their perspective of the pandemic and how citizens can be helpful in times of emergency when these heroes put their lives on the line to respond to a call.

    First up is Fire Chief Joanne Rund, whose story from being a hairdresser by day and a volunteer fire fighter by night turned into a passion that still can’t be extinguished. Her story is incredible and her knowledge vast.

    We will hear from Police Chief Melissa Hyatt in our next Baltimore Positive episode.

    Clearly, we are voting this month. And we hope you voted, too!

    We have been hearing from many of the prime candidates in the Democratic race for Mayor of Baltimore over the past two weeks as election ballots arrive in the mail. And as graduations and the Preakness are on hold here and spring arrives, we have been asking many educational and university leaders about the impact of COVID-19 and the future of higher education in America.

    But there are also other races to be decided this month, including Baltimore City Council President.

    We are all in this together and this is a time to educate, unite and keep each other safe. But we also have some extra time to read and learn and educate ourselves in many ways.


    We will continue to produce high-quality, intelligent conversations with thought leaders throughout this pandemic at Baltimore Positive. And we expect to do it at a rapid pace so stick with us and subscribe!

    Like all others, we have halted a “live schedule” and will continue to launch our chats as we have them during this crisis. Expect more than less.

    Please subscribe to Baltimore Positive and stay with us.

    We were built for this…
