|Recruit Firefighters with DCFD Lt. Alvarado at a blood donation event in Laurel.|
Firefighter recruits from the Prince George's County Fire/EMS Department's Career Recruit School #43 took it upon themselves to help other firefighters by donating blood. On Saturday, April 30, 2011, several members met Lt. Rob Alvarado from the District of Columbia fire Department and one of the organizers of the Hogs & Heroes Benefit Blood Drive held at Old Glory Harley Davidson in Laurel. This blood drive was conducted in the name of four DCFD Firefighters injured at a house fire and treated at the Burn Unit at the Washington Hospital Center. Fire Lt. Alvarado expressed his gratefulness for their attendance and was extremely impressed with their overall conduct and behavior.
Congratulations to the members of CRS 43 for your participation and representing the Fire/EMS Department in a professional manner.
