Firefighter training continues at the Market Place Mall in Bowie, Maryland.  The large, mostly vacant, mall is slated for demolition and the owner is allowing Prince George's County Firefighters to use the facility as a large scale training ground.  This was the first week of training which will continue through the end of March.

Training this week included cutting wood and metal roofs, rolling doors and advancing hose lines.

Our training highlights safety, teamwork and techniques, however, areas of improvement will be brought to the attention of firefighters with a follow-up critique to ensure an understanding of the proper way of performing tasks.
