Assistant Chief George is Publications "Hero of the Heat Wave"

Congratulations to Assistant Fire Chief Erroll W. George for being recognized by a local publication. The recently published Fiesta 2012 Edition of the Prince George’s Suite Magazine highlighted Assistant Chief George’s work during the summer calling him a “Hero of the Heat Wave.” The article details George’s approach to keeping everyone, including our firefighter/medics, safe and healthy. Erroll George serves as the Fire/EMS Departments Risk Management Coordinator.

The article mentioned programs put into place when weather conditions became unhealthy. Detailed were the hourly radio transmissions highlighting heat stress watches for emergency personnel, heat stress tip sheets distributed department wide, air quality alerts and the constant reminders that hydration before and during periods of high temperatures and humidity is vital to staying healthy.

Congratulations Assistant Chief George and thank you for all you do!!!
