Bel Air Volunteer Fire Company’s Richard Presberry Named Baltimore Ravens Hometown Hero
Congratulations to The Bel Air Volunteer Fire Company’s Richard Presberry on being named Baltimore Ravens Hometown Hero. Richard was working in 1970 when friends already in the Harford County volunteer fire & EMS service recruited him. He realized that people needed help and he had time to give, the perfect match. He was the first African American to join the BAVFC, starting as an Ambulance Lieutenant and later voted in as Ambulance Captain. During that time, he was named Ambulance Crewman of the Year. He then went on to take classes and started driving engines. He loves to help everybody. “The people are so great that I work around. I just keep doing it,” says Richard.
Richard, from the town of Bel Air, Harford County residents and businesses, and the Harford County Volunteer Fire & EMS Association (HCVFA), congratulations on this well-deserved award! Thank you for your volunteer service and having responded to over 35,000 calls. We are blessed to have members like YOU!
The Baltimore Ravens take on the Indianapolis Colts in this week 5 match up at 8:15pm EDT tonight on ESPN, 98 ROCK, WBAL 1090 AM, and 101.5 FM. GO RAVENS!
