The John Hopkins University Hospital in Baltimore, Maryland, is to be home for the FIRST responders after a federal judge ordered the hospital to reopen as soon as possible following a massive fire on Monday that killed three people and injured nearly a dozen others.
According to a statement from the hospital, the new facility will open with 24 beds for emergency response.
“It is our goal to provide the first responder care and the care of the families of the deceased as soon they are able,” the statement read.
“In this instance, we believe it is important to take a moment to reflect on what happened to the lives of those who died and the lives that were left behind.
In addition, the Johns Hopkins Hospital will be a home for FIRST responders, as it will provide them with access to the latest technologies and technology training.
This is a time of great concern for our emergency responders, and we are working closely with the community to address this crisis and support our first responders as they make the journey to recover.
