A person (including anyone licensed to provide medical care, volunteer firefighter, volunteer ambulance or rescue squad member, or emergency medical services provider) who provides emergency care in good faith at the scene of an emergency or accident is immune from civil liability for acts they may have performed (or omitted) in providing such emergency care; there is an exception if these acts or omissions amount to gross negligence. This immunity from liability does not extend to those whose profession it is to render emergency care for pay or with the expectation of being paid (MD Code Cts. and Jud. Proc. Sec. 5-603).
