Prince George’s County leaders will conduct a press conference to announce a joint partnership between the Fire/Emergency Medical Services (EMS) Department and Public Schools. It appears things could get pretty hot after the press conference on Friday afternoon.
After the formal press conference, a tour of the Fire/EMS Training Academy Emergency Medical Services lab will be provided and after that, things get hot for our participants. County Executive Baker, Dr. Hite and Fire Chief Bashoor will be fitted with firefighters personal protective equipment, including self contained breathing apparatus, and enter the academy burn building where a raging fire awaits them. Will they be able to take the heat?? Can the trio put this fire out?? The answers remain to be seen.
