On Thursday, September 26th Maryland Chemical Company, in conjunction with Baltimore City Special Ops hosted a joint open house at both headquarters. The event began with a tour of the state of the art Maryland Chemical and Chemstation Chesapeake facilities. Guests then continued to Baltimore City Fire Department Special Ops nearby where guests were educated about Active Shooter Awareness by Protective Security Advisor DHS-Cybersecurity & Infrastructure Security expert Raymond Hanna.
An equipment display of BCFD HAZMAT 1 to be toured and Mission BBQ lunch hosted by SBIMAP at Maryland Chemical followed the presentation and gave everyone a chance to get better acquainted. “This annual tradition serves to build our emergency preparedness and response community. It enlarges our circle of contacts and offers a great opportunity to share best practices and experiences. The collective knowledge means we are all smarter together than we are as individuals. It’s exciting and synergistic.” said Jeanette Glose Partlow, President of Maryland Chemical and Chemstation Chesapeake.
