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.

While i hear words spoke about being safe when possible, but not sacrificing service for safety. If anything, i see firefighters more aggressive than when i started many years back due to the increased protection…

Well done. You make some awesome points. In regards to the "numbers".....(and kind of backing up your thought of changing tactics), we have often wondered why there is so much emphasis on RIT and the RIT/Industrial complex. I'm on Chicago and have worked in the Chicago Suburbs for almost 20 years. We've seen the advent…

“Over safetyification”... Dave, that is the best description of what those who want to prevent us from doing the job want to do to the job.
