Crews participated in the first of several live burn exercises at the apartment buildings on Parkway Terrace Drive in Silver Hill. The old 1940 era apartment buildings were being renovated and some demolished for more green space. All fire stations within Prince George’s County and some other jurisdictions participated in these live burn exercises to hone various skills in firefighting tactics and skills evolutions. Several stations were scheduled at the same time so units could respond in as if it were an actual emergency and carry out their assignments. Participating chiefs also used these evolutions to practice their incident command skills.
