Where firefighters come to talk training


The Prince George's County Fire/Emergency Medical Services (EMS) Department (PGFD) has developed and is currently evaluating a mobile simulator for "MAYDAY" in-serve training firefighters.

See Smart Drill Outline here:

This training was developed in part due to A Safety and Investigative Report (SIT) that reviewed circumstances involving a house fire that critically injured a firefighter.

The SIT identified several contributing factors that led to the firefighters injuries, including, lack of training and experience in firefighter survival skills.

The PGFD has continually made available and conducted several training programs including Fireground Survival Training and other similar programs in an effort to make these survival skills second nature.
