Prince George's County Fire/Emergency Medical Services (EMS) Department Chief Ben Barksdale is proud to announce that the Department is again participating in this year's Christmas in April projects across our County. This year's Christmas in April projects will be held on Saturday, April 29, 2017, rain or shine.

Each home selected for the event has a House Captain assigned, who will be in charge of coordinating participation of volunteers at that location. We have selected nine (9) homes throughout the County to include (1) for each Battalion, (I) Capitol Heights VFD project, and (1) civilian staff project. The civilian staff project will be led by Ms. Diana Spears - in memory of Ms. Bridgette Wilson's many years of service to the Christmas in April projects.

"I would like to invite you all to join in this great effort to provide improved living conditions for those that are less fortunate. Each selected home may need yard clean up, carpentry repairs, basic plumbing, electrical repairs, painting, and of course fire safety improvements," said Fire Chief Barksdale.  "Feel free to invite your friends, family, and neighbors to join in this great effort."

Thanks go out to everyone for what you do each and every day to improve the quality of life for the residents and visitors of Prince George's County.
