The men and women; career, civilian and volunteer, of the Prince George’s County Fire/Emergency Medical Services Department have been sharing festive and joyous moments during this Holiday Season with our citizens, residents and visitors.
Fire Fighter/Medic Nicole Hardman has been conducting the “Helping Hearts for Troops” campaign since November by placing collection boxes into Fire/EMS Stations and places of business. Nicole and her helpers, including Fire Fighter/Medic Katie Fisher and a host of other personnel have been collecting items to fill and send holiday care packages to our troops. They will also be preparing and serving dinner to about 70 troops at Fort Meade on December 23, 2010. Upon hearing of the team efforts, Acting Fire Chief Marc S. Bashoor stated, “I commend Nicole Hardman and her team on their efforts to make our troops, spending the holidays away from family and friends to protect our freedom, a bit brighter. I understand that countless hours of work have gone into this effort and I am proud of the team going above and beyond.”
