On Wednesday, April 26, 2017, Prince George’s County will hold its 40th Annual Public Safety Valor Awards Luncheon. This event, as you know, is the official award ceremony for the public safety agencies. It would be a fitting tribute to the award recipients to have as many Department personnel as possible in attendance.
The class and dignity of this auspicious occasion have always impressed those who have attended in the past. If you are interested in attending, please contact the Office of the Fire Chief at 301-883-5204, no later than Thursday, April 20, 2017. I look forward to seeing many of you there.
