PGFD Appears in "101 Gadgets That Changed The World" Premiere Show

MEDIA CONTACT: Mark E. Brady, Chief Spokesperson, 240-508-7930, mebrady@co.pg.md.us

Earlier this year the Prince George's County Fire/Emergency Medical Services (EMS) Department was asked to be part of an upcoming cable TV show.  The Fire/EMS Department was selected from all other Departments throughout the Country to discuss two "gadgets" and how they have changed the life of firefighters and civilians since they were invented.

Acting Fire Chief Marc S. Bashoor and the on-duty crew from St. Joesph's Fire/EMS Station as well as some members of that community were involved in a segment discussing working smoke alarms.  Volunteer members at the College Park Fire/EMS Station were included in a segment on fire extinguishers.

We have just received notification that the show is complete and ready to air.  Associate Producer Philip R. Cloutier informed us that the two-hour special "101 Gadgets That Changed The World" will be premiering this Wednesday, June 15, on History at 9 PM Eastern and 6 PM Pacific.

Cloutier added, "On behalf of the '101 Gadgets' production team at JWM Productions, as well as our colleagues at Popular Mechanics magazine, thank you for your help in making it happen. We hope you enjoy the show!
