Fire/EMS Department and Community Walk a Path to Greatness

Prince George’s County Fire Chief Marc S. Bashoor and Firefighter/Medics from the 3rd Battalion recently joined with members of the Temple Hills and Hillcrest Heights area on a cook-out and walk. On Wednesday, July 27, 2011, Chief Bashoor and staff attended the community event at the invitation of Reverend Orlando J. Bego, Pastor, Centerpoint Church. The Fire/EMS Department provided an area with community outreach materials including smoke alarms, fire safety and injury prevention materials.

Participants gathered in the 3000 block of Saint Claire Drive in Temple Hills for a cook-out and then walked together throughout the community.

Fire Chief Bashoor enjoyed the interaction with members of the community and the opportunity to discuss various matters on a personal level. He stated, “Our participation with members of the community is demonstrating our concern for their safety and well being from the perils of fire, illness and injury. It is these grass roots community events that are the path to greatness in Prince George’s County.”
