Meet Ginger Manifold, Calvert Department of Public Safety, Fire/Rescue/EMS Division.

Calvert County Government via Facebook

Prince Frederick, MD- Ginger has worked for Calvert County Government in her current position for five years. As recruitment and retention specialist, she is responsible for coordinating the Calvert County fire/rescue/EMS volunteer benefits and providing ongoing support to each of the 900 volunteers. Some of these benefits include tuition assistance, childcare supplements, property tax incentives, a Length of Service Awards Program, discounts at various local businesses and high school recruitment offered through Calvert Technology Academy (CTA). Ginger is collaborating with the Board of Education in the hopes of giving more stability to the fire science and EMS two-year program.

“I love my job. I have a huge passion for it and helping those that are giving back to the community every day,” Ginger said. “Being able to help them move in a positive direction is very rewarding.”

Ginger graduated from Calvert High School and is actively working toward her degree in emergency medical services. Prior to joining county government, Ginger owned and operated an in-home family daycare for 12 years and was an advanced life support transport medic for All American Ambulance. Ginger also has a certification in critical incident stress management and has been a volunteer in the local fire/rescue/EMS field for 25 years.

In her free time, if she’s not on the road with her sons for a basketball or baseball game, or renovating her childhood home, Ginger likes to volunteer as a medic with Calvert Advance Life Support. Join us in thanking Ginger for her continued dedication and service.

The Southern Maryland Chronicle is a local, small business entrusted to provide factual, unbiased reporting to the Southern Maryland Community. While we look to local businesses for advertising, we hope to keep that cost as low as possible in order to attract even the smallest of local businesses and help them get out to the public. We must also be able to pay employees(part-time and full-time), along with equipment, and website related things. We never want to make the Chronicle a “pay-wall” style news site.

To that end, we are looking to the community to offer donations. Whether it’s a one-time donation or you set up a reoccurring monthly donation. It is all appreciated. All donations at this time will be going to furthering the Chronicle through hiring individuals that have the same goals of providing fair, and unbiased news to the community. For now, donations will be going to a business PayPal account I have set-up for the Southern Maryland Chronicle, KDC Designs. All business transactions currently occur within this PayPal account. If you have any questions regarding this you can email me at

Thank you for all of your support and I hope to continue bringing Southern Maryland the best news possible for a very long time. — David M. Higgins II
