Fire/EMS Department Participate in National Night Out

Prince George’s County Firefighters, EMT’s and Paramedics including career, volunteer and civilian members joined our public safety partners during the National Night Out (NNO) to promote fire safety and injury prevention. Prince George’s County Fire Chief Marc Bashoor participated in NNO activities in Lewisdale, Thurgood Marshall Middle School and at the Clinton Police station as other members of his staff and fire/EMS stations visited a number of other sites throughout the County. 

The U.S. Fire Administration (USFA) and the Prince George’s County Fire/EMS Department (PGFD) partnered with the National Association of Town Watch (NATW), which administers National Night Out (NNO). USFA and PGFD are working with NATW to enhance NNO events and activities by reaching out to fire and emergency medical service (EMS) personnel across the country. The goal is to promote fire and life safety prevention and education initiatives for families and communities while partnering with law enforcement.
