12-year-Old 911 Hero Presented with Fire Chiefs Award

MEDIA CONTACT: Mark E. Brady, Chief Spokesperson, 240-508-7930

Suitland…Prince George’s County Fire Chief Marc S. Bashoor presented Chyna Campbell a “FIRE CHIEFS AWARD” for her actions on Thursday, October 27, 2011. On that afternoon Chyna called 911 to report a apartment on fire with a family trapped on the balcony. Her calm and precise instructions to the 911 call taker provided firefighters with information that enabled them to quickly rescue the family and extinguish the fire.


Today, Fire Chief Bashoor, Firefighter/Medics from District Heights Fire/EMS Station #826 and Chyna’s family visited her 7th grade class at the Drew Freeman Middle School on Brooks Drive in Suitland. Fire Chief Bashoor presented the 12 year old with the award and played a recording of Chyna’s 911 call.

Teresa Crisman from the Fire/EMS Departments Community Outreach Office used the award presentation as a teachable moment and used a 911 simulator to demonstrate making a 911 call.

Original story on the fire and rescue can be found by clicking here.
