PGFD Paticipates in 9-11 Memorial Tribute

Nearly 3-dozen members of the Prince George’s County Fire/EMS Department joined Maryland’s Lieutenant Governor to remember the lives lost on September 11, 2001. The event was sponsored by the Port Towns and held at the memorial constructed at the Peace Cross in Bladensburg. This memorial honors the 23 citizens of Prince George’s County, Maryland that died that morning. Maryland’s Lt. Governor Anthony Brown led the ceremony and thanked the members of public safety and the municipal leaders for joining him to remember the tragic events that affected our country and claimed nearly 3,000 lives. Lt. Gov. Brown read each name of those Prince Georgians memorialized at that site. The Fire/EMS Department participated with nearly 3-dozen career and volunteer members of the Department including Fire Chief Eugene Jones, Lt Col Peden and Stagnaro, members of the Chiefs staff, and firefighters from nearby Bunker Hill, Bladensburg and Riverdale Fire/EMS Stations.
