The Prince George's County Fire/Emergency Medical Services (EMS) Department is celebrating National EMS Week in a special way.  On Tuesday, May 17, the Fire/EMS Department will participate in festivities at Prince George's Stadium during a Bowie Baysox game.

Members of our Department will receive their Excellence in EMS Medals for their actions on incidents in 2015.  These members were not able to attend the awards luncheon last week and will enjoy receiving their medals during a pre-game ceremony plus throw out the ceremonial first pitch.

This game will feature many PGFD members.  Our very own Bridgette Wilson will sing the National Anthem while our Honor Guard presents colors.  A PGFD ambulance/medic unit will be on display in front of the stadium before the game and an information table will be located on the concourse during the game displaying some of our tools of the trade.

We will also have a moment of silence for Fire Fighter/Medic Lieutenant John "Skillet" Ulmschneider.

The Bowie Baysox are offering a ticket purchase whereas $5 from every $15 box seat purchase will be donated to Skillets family.  In order for this to happen, you must purchase your game ticket online and use the special offer code of PGFD (all caps).  To be eligible tickets must be purchased by midnight May 16.  To purchase your game day tickets please click here and remember that $5 from every box seat ticket will be provided to Skillets family.

Blood Drive at Laurel High School Thursday, May 5

Prince George's County Firefighter/Medics recently participated in a Career Day at the Laurel High School.  As part of an excellent marketing program, Laurel HS officials asked each Career Day presenter to help spread the word of a blood drive the school is hosting.  

Brian F. Dougherty, Fire Fighter/Paramedic Captain, was tasked with this project and will be  reaching out to members of the Department and asked the Department's Office of Public Information to help him spread the word.

We are glad to assist in such a worthwhile cause.
