Prince George's County Fire Chief Marc Bashoor presented his first "Department Citation" to the Capitol Heights Fire/EMS Station for their participation on February 19, 2011. High winds and dry conditions on that day generated the busiest day in the history of the Prince George's County Fire/EMS Department. Chief Bashoor will be presenting the Department Citation Awards to every Station and mutual aid jurisdictions.
The presentation was made at the ribbon cutting ceremony for the recently renovated Capitol Heights Fire/EMS Station on September 25, 2011.
Bashoor also notified Capitol Heights that career firefighters will be returning. Upon the graduation of Career Recruit School #44, scheduled in early November 2011, Firefighter/Medics will start working a daywork schedule, Monday through Friday 7:00 am to 3:00 pm, at Fire/EMS Station #805. Capitol Heights Fire/EMS Station has been an all volunteer station for the past couple of years after career personnel were re-deployed.
