An Ace Paramedic Swings a Pretty Good Racket

Fire Fighter/Medic Jorge A. Paucar, 39, is a 14-year member
of the
Department.
Fire Fighter/Medic Jorge A. Paucar, 39, is a 14-year member of the Prince George’s County Fire/Emergency Medical Services (EMS) Department.  For the past 3 months, he has been assigned to   Chillum Fire/EMS Station 844, located at 6330 Riggs Road.  Being a veteran, Paucar has been assigned to quite a few stations in his career including District Heights, Silver Hill, Landover Hills, Riverdale, Chapel Oaks, Glenn Dale, College Park, and Berwyn Heights.  Throughout his career, he has received numerous awards and letters of recognition from both citizens and the Department. 

Fire Fighter/Medic Paucar’s bilingualism is indeed an asset to the Chillum Fire/EMS Station, which is in an area highly populated with Spanish-speaking residents.  “I speak, read, and write Spanish fluently.  These skills are used frequently while on incidents,” he said.

 Paucar recently won the
United States Tennis Association (USTA) Championship
that was held at the Wilde Lake Tennis Club in Columbia, Maryland. 
Jorge Paucar spends much of his off-duty time playing tennis, which he estimates to be about 13 hours per week.  He began playing while in high school and is quite skilled at the game.  In fact, he recently won the United States Tennis Association (USTA) Championship that was held at the Wilde Lake Tennis Club in Columbia, Maryland.  He humbly described his victory, saying, “There were 16 players in the tournament, and I was fortunate enough to win.” 

Paucar participated in another tournament the weekend of July 13.  He won all of his games at the USTA District level tournament and now moves on to the Sectionals in Norfolk, Virginia.



Asked about his plans for the future, stated, “I plan on furthering my career through promotions.  I will definitely do more tennis leagues, tournaments, and competitions.  I will also assist with promoting an opening of a Tennis Center in one or a few of our local communities.”


Jorge is currently single and resides in Crofton.
