Frank has 30 years of EMS experience, 25 of those years have been in the Baltimore City Fire Department. Upon completing the academy in 1996, Frank went to Medic 15 (which was the busiest medic in the United States at the time) and spent the next 9 years working on the west side of Baltimore City. He transferred to Medic 9 where he will remain until his retirement or death whichever comes first. Frank has also worked most of his career transporting neonatal patients to specialty referral centers throughout Maryland and its 5 surrounding states. Frank has built relationships within the neighborhoods he has worked as well as the hospitals he transports patients to. Frank received Paramedic Of The Year in Baltimore City in 2000, a lifetime achievement award, as well as numerous citations and awards for outstanding performance in the field.
Frank’s cheese slipped off his cracker in the beginning of 2021 and he decided the HOG was a better option than jail. After completing his time “on the inside” he discovered his second career….peer support. Frank currently has 7 years of sobriety. He is peer support trained by the IAFF and a member of the BCFD Peer Support Team.
