EMT Taylor becomes Charge Aide
The BVFD proudly announces the advancement of Emergency Medical Technician (EMT) Shelby Taylor, to Charge Status on Ambulance 715.
EMT Taylor joined the BVFD in November of 2019 and has worked hard to complete multiple specialized training programs to advance to Charge status
– Maryland Emergency Medical Technician Course

Even after all of the academy training, EMT Taylor completed many steps before taking command of a BVFD Ambulance. EMT Taylor completed a series of comprehensive written and practical in-station examinations. After completing all tests, EMT Taylor rode “Charge” under the evaluation of an experienced Charge EMT for a series of evaluation calls. This process is designed to allow the EMT to demonstrate knowledge and ability in the field before being in charge of an Ambulance and crew in any situation.
The BVFD congratulates EMT Taylor for completing this challenging process and earning Charge status and her dedication and commitment to serving others. Keep up the fantastic work!
