Response to a request from Fire Department Presidents

"Paid or Volunteer, It’s What We Do, I Wish You Really Knew”

Prince George's County Fire Chief Marc S. Bashoor delivered a message to the congregation of the First Baptist Church of Glenarden.  His message centered around the tragic events of an early morning house fire where four family members perished; no smoke alarm was found in the house. 

His message was well received not only on that Sunday but also by the thousands that have watched the video.  Many have asked for the words to the poem that was read, "It's What We Do."

It is what we do - the Poem
