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.
