The Prince George's County Fire/Emergency Medical Services (EMS) Department recently conducted Graduation Ceremonies for Career Recruit School #48.  Forty-three recruits received their Certificates and began their career as Firefighters.  The ceremony was held on Monday, December 2, at the Charles Herbert Flowers High School auditorium and was well attended by invited dignitaries, Fire/EMS Department Command Staff, family and friends of the graduating recruits.

The keynote speaker, the Honorable Angela D. Alsobrooks, States Attorney for Prince George's County, shared her experience in a recent Fire Ops 101 Class to the recruits.  She understands the challenges, both personal and physical, in becoming a firefighter and dealing with the day-to-day tasks that they have sworn to perform.

Prince George's County Fire Chief Marc S. Bashoor spoke to the recruits saying, "No matter how difficult the circumstances, those who call on us will look to you for help, they will look to you for reassurance, they will have blind faith-and confidence in you, confidence that you will give them hope in what may be the most desperate and vulnerable time of their lives."

Several awards were bestowed to deserving recruits during the ceremony.  They are as follows.
