The Prince George’s County Fire/Emergency Medical Services (EMS) Department and the Redskins will host over 100 National EMS Memorial Bike Ride (NEMSMBR) participants as they make their final leg of their journey.  Their journey started in Boston, MA, on May 14 and will end in Arlington this weekend for the National EMS Memorial.  The Memorial Weekend pays tribute to the EMS workers that have lost their lives in the line of duty.  The Memorial Weekend is always part of the National EMS Week.

The Redskins will host one of the final rest stops for participants as they make their way to Arlington and are generously donating lunch. 

It is anticipated that the bike riders will start to arrive at FedExField, Gate G, at around 11:30 am.  Members of the Fire/EMS Department will be on hand to greet the riders.
