PGFD Fire Prevention Activities

Fire Fighter/Medics from St. Josephs Fire/EMS Station 806 recently visited the Shabach Christian Academy housed within the First Baptist Church of Glenarden at 3600 Brightseat Road.  The crew provided a fire prevention demonstration and a tour of the apparatus for students and staff.  "The students were attentive and were very receptive to our fire prevention message," said Fire Lieutenant Jonathan W. Bender.

Community Fire/EMS Stations across the County have been holding Fire Prevention and Open House events and visiting our County schools.  This years theme was to prevent kitchen fires.  Kitchen fires, most notably, unattended cooking, is the leading cause of fires and fire related injuries.

There is one remaining Open House that will occur on  Saturday, October  26, 2013 at the Marlboro Volunteer Fire Department, 14815 Pratt Street, Upper Marlboro from 10:00 am until 3:00 pm.  For additional information call the Marlboro Volunteer Fire Department at 301-952-0939

For additional information about having firefighters visiting your school or event please contact our Community Outreach Office at 301-883-5250.
