The Prince George’s County Fire/Emergency Medical Services (EMS) Department recently held three groundbreaking for new public safety facilities. Construction for all three facilities is scheduled to start in 2017 with completion in 2018.
On a beautiful, bright and brisk Monday morning a groundbreaking ceremony was held to ceremoniously start the construction of a new Prince George's County Community Fire/EMS Station. On Monday, November 7, Prince George's County officials spoke at the site of the soon to be built Fire/EMS Station 851, near the entrance to Oxon Hill High School on Clipper Way.
The Oxon Hill Community Fire/EMS Station #851 is slated to be a 4-bay design similar to other recently constructed County facilities such as Brandywine, St. Joes, Northview and District Heights. Construction will start in 2017 with a completion date projected in late 2018. The Oxon Hill Community Fire/EMS Station is slated to house an engine, ladder, truck, ambulance and Battalion Chief.
