P.G. Working:Landover – no, Hyattsville…uh, Kentland? FedEx Field? Capitol Heights?…Ritchie?

P.G.’s new chief takes in a job that appears to have multiple addresses.

"Know your District". I learned that from Retired Chief Dan Martell, Boston FD in 1974. Always praticed and preached it. Glad to see you are preaching that today. I hope the choir is listening.!
