Prince George’s County Maryland Fire Chief Benjamin M. Barksdale is proud to announce the recent delivery of three new engines.  The 2018 Pierce Manufactured engines were designed to meet the demand for the service area they will be assigned to.  The units are powered by a Detroit DD13 engine with 525 HP.  The engines can carry 500 gallons of water and are equipped with Hale 1,500 gallons per minute pump.

The new units will be assigned to Oxon Hill Fire/EMS Station 842 (Marcy Avenue), Oxon Hill Fire/EMS Station 821 (Livingston Road) and Capitol Heights Fire/EMS Station 805.

The Southern Maryland Chronicle is a local, small business entrusted to provide factual, unbiased reporting to the Southern Maryland Community. While we look to local businesses for advertising, we hope to keep that cost as low as possible in order to attract even the smallest of local businesses and help them get out to the public. We must also be able to pay employees(part-time and full-time), along with equipment, and website related things. We never want to make the Chronicle a “pay-wall” style news site.

To that end, we are looking to the community to offer donations. Whether it’s a one-time donation or you set up a reoccurring monthly donation. It is all appreciated. All donations at this time will be going to furthering the Chronicle through hiring individuals that have the same goals of providing fair, and unbiased news to the community. For now, donations will be going to a business PayPal account I have set-up for the Southern Maryland Chronicle, KDC Designs. All business transactions currently occur within this PayPal account. If you have any questions regarding this you can email me at davidhiggins@southernmarylandchronicle.com

Thank you for all of your support and I hope to continue bringing Southern Maryland the best news possible for a very long time. — David M. Higgins II
