The Officers and Members of the Union Bridge Fire Company extend our deepest sympathies to the family, friends and fellow emergency responders of career Paramedic/Firefighter Robert A. "Bobby" Jones.

Bobby began his fire service career when he joined the Woodlawn Volunteer Fire Company in September of 1978. He became a career firefighter in February 1982 with the Baltimore County Fire Department until his retirement as a Fire Lieutenant in April of 2012. He also served as a paid Paramedic/Firefighter/Engineer with the Reese & Community Volunteer Fire Co. since the late 1980's.

He was a member of the Lansdowne Volunteer Fire Company from 2011-2013 and joined the Cape St. Claire Volunteer Fire Company in January 2013 where he served as a driver/firefighter and was promoted to Lieutenant in May 2021.

Please keep Bobby's family, friends and fellow emergency responders in your thoughts and prayers.
