SIX FLAGS America Donates Stuffed Animals

For the second consecutive year Six Flags America donated dozens of plush stuffed animals to the Prince George's County Fire/Emergency Medical Services (EMS) Department.  The stuffed animals were a result of a donation from patrons visiting the Largo location during their Holiday in the Park.  For each stuffed animal purchased by a patron one would also be donated to the Department.

"These stuffed animals will soon be available on our EMS units.  When one of our medics comes in contact with a child on a call, a stuffed toy will be provided to help with the child in coping with whatever crisis they are dealing with at the time," stated Fire Chief Tiffany Green.

Denise Stokes, Communications Manager at Six Flags America,  made the presentation to Chief Green and said, "We enjoy helping the community and our Fire /EMS Department.  This seemed to be a unique and effective way of bringing some sense of joy to a child in need."

The crew from the Pointer Ridge Fire/EMS Station 843 were on hand as well to accept the stuffed animals.
