Department firehouse.

When Mark Trexler, educational coordinator at Kennedy Krieger Institute, contacted the Rockville Volunteer Fire Department about sending some students with special needs to the station to complete a few helpful tasks, he reached the right person. T. Cosgrove Jones, president of the fire department, has a son with Down syndrome.
“They hit the right guy to come here and do this,” Jones said. “I know what these kids need.”
