Award for the Most Training Hours, Chief Inducted into Hall of Fame
The MVFD was honored to receive two awards at the Prince George’s County Volunteer Fire and Rescue Association’s annual awards ceremony:
An award for 5,321 training hours, the most of any single volunteer company in Prince George’s County. This was a direct result of our members striving to better themselves through training opportunities, thereby improving our ability to deliver service to the citizens of Prince George’s County. Specifically, about ten members graduated from EMT class this year, which probably accounts for a major portion of these hours. Congratulations!
In addition, our very own Chief Thomas Groom was honored to be inducted into the PGCVFRA Hall of Fame for 45 years of service to Prince George’s County. To quote our nomination write-up for Tommy: During his distinguished volunteer service, Tommy consistently demonstrated his willingness to go above and beyond the call of duty for the Department, the Town of Morningside, the PGCVFRA, and the Maryland State Firemen’s Association. Tommy is also a highly respected asset, within the entire Prince George’s County Fire and EMS Department.
