B&O Railroad Museum Honors Fallen Baltimore City Firefighters
BALTIMORE, MD – January 27, 2022 – In memory of Baltimore’s fallen heroes who lost their lives in service in our neighborhood, Mt. Clare, the B&O Railroad Museum is donating 50% of admission on Sunday, January 30, to the Baltimore City Fire Foundation.
Our hearts are heavy with the news of the three fire service members that died in the line of duty and know that many wish to help those families in our community as well. All donations will provide immediate financial support to the families of any Baltimore City Firefighter or Paramedic who suffers a serious injury or death while still an active member of the department. The Museum is open 10am – 4pm on Sunday, January 30th.
