Emergency Personnel Receive H1N1 Vaccine

Fire Fighter/Medic Captain Steve Kling receives the nasal H1N1 Vaccine administered by Paramedic Captain Mary Crampton.
Volunteer William "Bill" Honeycutt from Forestville receives a H1N1 shot.

Prince George’s County Fire and Emergency Medical Services personnel are most often the first point of physical contact with our citizens and residents when they become ill. As such, it is important that emergency operations personnel are provided the resources to do their jobs safely and avoid becoming sick themselves. Active emergency responders are being “highly encouraged” to receive the H1N1 virus vaccination. The vaccine is being provided to our combined, career and volunteer, members at no cost.

Several members have already taken advantage of this opportunity. Vaccinations will continue for the remainder of this week or until supplies run out.
