New Color Scheme for PGFEMS Apparatus

County-owned apparatus faces new look after years old design.

The Prince George's County Fire and EMS Department had earlier taken submissions for a new paint and design scheme for county owned apparatus and today has released the selected design. The latest issue of the department newsletter reported that Assistant Fire Chief Steven Hess received many suggestions for a new design, keeping the wording of the department theme "Safety First, Everyone Goes Home". Included in the design are DOT striping and QR codes to assist with community outreach.

    Who is PGFEMS? You have DCFEMS and PGFD. There is no PGFEMS.

      Will,

      You are incorrect. PGFEMS is the current, correct abbreviation for the Prince George’s County Fire and EMS Department, an update from years ago of our earlier name, Prince George’s County Fire Department. Unlike in the District, our administration is not hung up on the use of “PGFD” by its personnel.

Thank you Trey. It would be valuable for all of us to do a follow-up later or a look at one of your trainings and how departments are applying the new research and testing the new tactics for themselves. Bill

Buckets, not puckets... 1st day back at work after vacation, and all the coffee I had today hasn't kick started the brain into gear!
