Help to Rescue the Public Safety Assistance Food Basket Program

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

In September 2011, The Clerk of the Circuit Court warehouse in Upper Marlboro sustained significant flood damage due to Tropical Storm Lee. This resulted in the loss of over fifteen thousand dollars worth of Public Safety Assistance Program (PSAP) non-perishable food supplies stored in that warehouse for the annual Holiday Food Basket Program.

The Board of Directors of the Public Safety Assistance Program has asked public safety agencies to conduct a special in-house monetary donation campaign to help replace these supplies through bulk purchase. The Fire/Emergency Medical Services (EMS) Department is pleased to partner with the Police Department, Homeland Security/Public Safety Communications, Department of Corrections, and the Office of the Sheriff to support this request. Your charitable donations will ensure that families in our community will have a happy holiday. PSAP is a 501 (c) 3 charitable organization. All contributions are fully tax-deductible.

Fire Fighter/Emergency Medical Technician-I Nicole Orme has agreed to serve as the coordinator and point-of-contact for all Fire/EMS Department contributions. Field personnel are encouraged to coordinate cash donations through their assigned Battalion Chief, who will assure delivery to FF/EMT Orme. If you have further questions, FF/EMT Orme can be reached at 301-883-5200.

Please consider supporting this worthy cause. All donations are encouraged. Through your generosity, we will help the PSAP to meet their goal of supplying a food basket to every Prince George’s County family in need for the 2011 Holiday Season.
