NFFF Thanks PGFD for Help in Producing Seat Belt PSA

This story comes to us from Mark E. Brady:

The Prince George's County Fire/Emergency Medical Services (EMS) Department recently received a note of thanks from the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation (NFFF). Ronald Jon Siarnicki, Executive Director of the NFFF, thanked the Department for providing personnel and apparatus that were used in a new seat belt public service announcement.

Ron Siarnicki wrote, "I want to thank you for helping the NFFF with our effort to create a new seat belt PSA. I had the opportunity to release the clip at Firehouse World in San Diego on Monday. Already we are well over 8000 internet views in just a day and a half. Your crews did an excellent job and as was expected your staff went out of their way to make it all happen. Thanks for your help, support and friendship."

Area Students Competed in the Annual Biomedical Competition

It was check-up time for the Patriots on February 7, 2011! The U.S. National Institutes of Health and four of their institutes, National Library of Medicine, NIH Office of Communications and Public Liaison, NIH Office of Science Education, and National Human Genome Research Institute, sponsored the Patriots 2nd Annual Biomedical Competition.  Their goal was to encourage students to further their interest in various medical fields. 

We had students from Virginia, Maryland and Washington DC participating in the competition, and 10 medical professionals to serve as judges.  We also had 10 future doctors from Georgetown University Medical Center to give our guests a pre-doctor check up.  Each team was required to present a five-page research paper, brochure, slide show presentation, one-page web site, display board, and an oral presentation on one of the pre-selected medical careers.
