Update provided this afternoon on Kenny McSwain. Update by Major W. Derrick Lea.

Battalion Chief Kenneth McSwain (Kenny) was in a serious car accident on August 20, 2009. Kenny is recovering well at the University of Maryland Shock Trauma Unit in Baltimore and will be transferred to the National Rehabilitation Hospital at 102 Irving Street NW, Washington DC this afternoon. This is great news given the initial prognosis that he would probably not be transferred for at least two more weeks. Kenny is in great spirits and said “the level of support is overwhelming.” Information on visiting hours and terms will be released as soon as this information is agreed upon with the Hospital. We ask that you limit visitation until more information is provided. Please keep Kenny McSwain and his family in your prayers during this time of recovery. All well wishes can still be sent to pgfdspecial@co.pg.md.us

Any additional questions can be sent to Firefighter Anthony Anderson at 240-882-3892.
