Marc S. Bashoor has been confirmed by the County Council as the chief of the Prince George's County (MD) Fire/EMS Department. Here's an excerpt from Daniel Valentine's story at Gazette.net:
Marc Bashoor was unanimously confirmed as fire chief amid applause from an audience of uniformed firefighters and EMS workers.
“I know this process is very long,” Baker told the council. “I appreciate the tough questioning and sincere way you went about this.”
Bashoor is a 23-year worker with the county fire/EMS department who left for an emergency management post in West Virginia in 2005. He returned after Baker was elected late last year to take over the department, which handles more than 179,000 fire and emergency calls per year.
Now here's a question for you. News wise it has been an unusually quiet period for PGFD since Chief Bashoor took over at the start of the year. Is it because Marc Bashoor is so good at what he does or is it because his friend Dave Statter retired from the TV news business a year ago?
Either way, congratulations chief.
