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.

Holding 1&1: First Due, What Do You Do?
I ride on a 3 man engine. Our policy is that the 2nd due establishes the water supply. Looking at the still picture, I believe I would knock it down with the 2.5in initially. and have the 1.75in mop up. Being first due on this and pulling the 2.5in sucks cause another engine is going…
