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.





News in the Washington, D.C. area is unique, as locations are sometimes identified by Google Maps and the U.S. Postal Service zip code system (I suppose asking a resident would be too much.)

Crews did a great job in both knocking down the fire and extension.

Fire was in 37‘s first due.

The USFA would benefit from an overhaul in the way that they collect and disseminate data. The categories are generally broad and tend to tabulate LODD's by type rather than task.
