As the completion date for Prince George’s County newest Fire/EMS Station nears, a true work of art is in progress. Over the coming days, finishing touches are being applied to the mosaic tile mural being installed on a front wall of the Northview Community Fire/EMS Station. Cheryl Foster and her team of artists will complete work this week on this colorful and eye-catching display depicting firefighters, EMT’s and Paramedics. This work is part of the Prince George’s County Arts in Public Places whose Executive Director, Lauren Dugas Glover, has worked with other displays of art at the Bunker Hill and District Heights Fire/EMS Stations.
The Northview Fire/EMS Station #816 is slated to open for operations in mid October. The station will have an engine, paramedic ambulance, Battalion Chief, and EMS Supervisor. Additional Fire/EMS resources are also under consideration to be housed at the new facility.
The new Fire/EMS facility is located at Northview Drive and Health Center Drive.
