He also writes training manuals and ensures they are current. Additionally, Tim keeps agency members up to date on their certifications. He is a member of the Maryland Incident Management Team and Calvert County’s Emergency Operating Centers – Incident Management Team.
“911 is a lifeline for the public, and communications is a lifeline for our responders,” Tim said. “We are the first of the first responders. We manage scenes, rendering aid through instruction and gathering information for our responders.”
His favorite part of the job is seeing trainees mature into confident professionals.

Tim recently received his Emergency Number Professional and National Emergency Number Association – Center Manager Certification Program certificate.

Tim enjoys spending time with family and being outdoors. He also loves to hunt and noted that there is nothing like wandering through the mountains and hearing an elk bugle or turkey gobble. Thank you for all you do to serve the citizens of Calvert County, Tim!
