Schaffer spent much of his life committed to Emergency Medical Services and his community, where he served with several local fire departments including Lineboro, Pleasant Valley, Westminster, Pikesville and Littlestown, according to the release.

“I am so saddened by the loss of my friend Jeff Schaffer,” Commissioner Stephen Wantz is quoted as saying. “I’ve had the honor of knowing and working with Jeff for many years and can say you will not find a person more dedicated and passionate in serving his community. It is hard to appropriately appreciate and show enough gratitude to Jeff and his family for his service to Carroll County residents.”
