Frank Underwood
A detailed press release will be posted in the near future; however, I wanted to share with everyone a memo notifying members of the Prince George's County Fire/EMS Department that a fourth Lieutenant Colonel has been appointed. This position will be filled by life time volunteer member Frank Underwood. His credentials speak volumes about his experience and love of the fire/EMS service.  Underwood, a resident of College Park, will take on the Deputy Fire Chief role in a newly created position of Volunteer Services Command. Additional information about Frank and his new position will be released shortly. Congratulations Frank!!!

This is the announcement sent out by Fire Chief Marc Bashoor last night:
