For the second consecutive year, a Prince George's County Fire/Emergency Medical Services (EMS) Department (PGFD) station has been awarded a year's supply of Charmin toilet paper. 

Last years recipients, Chillum-Adelphi Fire/EMS Station 834, was kind enough to share their years supply with their neighboring station, Chillum Fire/EMS Station 844.  

This year it is the Chillum Fire/EMS Station 844 that is the 2015 "Butts That Save Our Butts" winner of a year's supply of Charmin toilet paper.  In keeping with the high standard set last year, Station 844 is splitting the prize with Station 834.  

Chillum Fire/EMS Station 844 was selected as a winner after being nominated by a Chillum resident.  In her nomination the citizen stated;

"I have a neighbor who has been ailing with cancer for the past six years.  These fire fighters in this firehouse have been to my neighbors house all the time to assist him no matter what time or under which kind of weather they always here in time.  I also live in a flood zone area and whenever there is danger or flood warning or any kind threat they would arrive to assist with a smile on their face that gives me courage even if I was afraid.  I do salute them for many things they do going door to door to check fire alarms if in order, looking for elderly who are lost due to confusion to house fires they have been there for us."

Well deserved recognition for the crew from 844 and surrounding areas that obviously have impressed this citizen.  Congratulations!!!

Fire Fighter/Medic Captain Danon P. Ushinski works at Station 844 and stated, "While the prize is rewarding and will be put to good use by everyone that works here, I believe our biggest reward was the kind words included in the nomination written by a citizen."

Firefighter/Medics assigned to Chillum Fire/EMS Station 844 show their appreciation to Charmin for selecting them to receive a year's supply of toilet paper.
