The task of community risk reduction is a year round job for Prince George's County Fire/Emergency Medical Services Department. Providing fire safety and injury prevention information is a staple of our community outreach programs and during the month of October we highlight the services we provide. Fire/EMS Stations open their stations and provide demonstrations to entertain and educate. Firefighters know that a visit to a local fire station can last a lifetime and ideally leave a positive impression well after their visit.
The St. Joe's Fire/EMS Station in Largo held their Fire Prevention Open House on October 11 and hosted around 100 visitors. Firefighter/Medics, High School Cadets and the Departments Community Outreach office provided a variety of displays and demonstrations that were well received.
Fire Fighter/Medic Lieutenant Steve Tabak documented a majority of the days activities with images provided to you today. If you have any questions about our fire prevention activities and community risk reduction efforts feel free to call 301-883-5250 or email TACrisman@co.pg.md.us
