Safety of all personnel is vital for the Fire/EMS Department to provide the very best services to our citizens and residents. Fire Chief Eugene A. Jones devotes a large majority of his time focusing on safety concerns of the Department and has recognized similar efforts of individuals working together towards the same goals. At a Safety Committee meeting held at the Fire Services Building on Thursday, July 22, 2010, Fire Chief Jones recognized individuals that represent the Prince George’s County Professional Fire Fighters and Paramedics Association, IAFF Local 1619, and the Prince George’s County Volunteer Fire and Rescue Association (PGCVFRA) and presented each of them with Fire Chiefs Awards.

Representing Local 1619:

Vice-President Christian B. Wargo and

Executive Representative Steve Tabak

Representing the PGCVFRA:

Tom Flint and Chuck Walker

Christian Wargo summed up the combined safety effort by saying, “I want to be able to go home after every shift and I want to see everyone go home after every shift. The Safety Committee collectively is working to make this a continued reality.”

In making the presentation Fire Chief Jones stated, “In recognition of your commitment to the safety and wellness of our Fire/EMS personnel through your diligence while participating on the Safety Committee. Your dedication to keeping our personnel safe is held within the highest regard of the Fire/EMS Department and is commendable.”
