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.

I am not sure how to take this article or some of the comments after. As one of the training officers in my mid-sized volunteer department, I have gone through SLICERS and RECEO-VS both the discussions and the science behind them.
