Prince George's County Fire Chief Ben Barksdale joined civilian, volunteer and career members of the Department participating in this year's Christmas in April projects across our County. This year's Christmas in April projects were conducted on Saturday, April 29.

The civilian staff project on Crain Highway in Upper Marlboro was conducted in memory of Ms. Bridgette Wilson's many years of service to the Christmas in April projects.  Bridgette started out as the house captain for this project and had made many plans but passed away on March 7.  Ms Diana Spears, co-captain, led the group through the emotional event.  "Bridgette's Tree" was planted in her memory at the house during the project.

Fire Chief Barksdale spent Saturday visiting with crews working on projects throughout the County.  "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," said Fire Chief Barksdale.
