After months of negotiations between the Marlboro Volunteer Fire Department, Inc. and Prince George’s County the sale of the Marlboro Volunteer Fire Department Station 2 and property has been completed.  The sale involved the 1- 1/2 acre parcel including the existing structure serving as a  Fire/EMS Station located at 7710 Croom Road in Upper Marlboro.  The transfer of ownership to Prince George’s County is mutually beneficial to the Marlboro Volunteers and Prince George’s County.  Citizens and residents will not see any interruptions in service as there are no operational changes planned for the Fire/EMS Station.  Currently,  the newly named Croom Fire/EMS Station is staffed by 5 career Firefighter/Medics that are responsible for response of an Engine, Water Tanker, Haz-Mat Support Unit and Paramedic Unit.

Prince George's County Fire Chief Marc S. Bashoor stated, "I appreciate the leadership of the Marlboro Volunteer Fire Department working with the County to complete this transaction.  This move will allow the MVFD to consolidate volunteer staffing at the Pratt Street station and focus the Volunteer Corporations efforts on one station.  We are proud of the many hours the men and women of the MVFD have provided and continue to provide towards staffing equipment, stewarding a cadet program, and contributing to the Fire/EMS Department’s overall fire prevention efforts."
