Traffic Advisory for Thursday Morning, January 23, 2014.

The Prince George's County Fire/Emergency Medical Services Department will be conducting a Line of Duty Death (LODD) Funeral Service on Thursday morning.  These services are being held for James "Doc" Brooks, a 20-year volunteer member that suffered a medical episode while on duty.  For additional information about "Doc" please click here and here.

I have included a copy of the funeral procession route to assist you in reporting traffic conditions that may result from this procession.  This will not be a standard funeral procession.  This will start at the Lee Funeral Home in Clinton and drive by key locations (Fire/EMS Stations and Marina) before proceeding to the Church.  The procession will be moderate in length as only family, close friends and comrades will participate.  Internment will be private and held at a later date.

8:30 am  Funeral Caisson Engine with flag draped casket will depart Lee’s Funeral Home, 6633 Old Alexandria Ferry Road, Clinton, MD
