The Prince George's County Fire/Emergency Medical Services Department is proud to announce the start of Career Recruit School 49. Thirty-one recruits started the Fire/EMS Training Academy on Monday, October 21, 2013. The academy class will take up to 6 months to complete with a number of recruits with previous experience will be released earlier.
Prince George's County Fire/EMS Chief Marc S. Bashoor and his Command Staff greeted the recruits on Wednesday, October 22 at the Training Academy in Cheltenham. In his opening comments Chief Bashoor stated, "In the coming weeks, your Training Academy instructors will instill a measure of discipline and respect that you should cherish. You must realize this is merely a starting line. From this point forward, the satisfaction and reward you receive from this calling will depend in large part on what you choose to contribute." Bashoor concluded by saying, "For those 19 year old recruits in the room – you are not in High School any longer – you MUST apply yourself and successfully complete everything your instructors teach and test you on. Your job, and ultimately your LIFE depend on it."
