Around 14:30 hours engine company 38 recieved the first of numerous calls, that ranged from medical locals, to box assignments that lasted well into the next morning. E838 ran first due in Company 8 (Seat Pleasent), Company 5 (Capitol Heights), and Company 17 (Boulevard Heights) first dues (Da Oaks truly came first) on multiple assignments. The engine crew picked up the slack and ran non-stop to help protect the citizens of Prince Georges County as they were not able to stay in quarters longer than an hour before recieving their next run. After a busy day and night E838's crew was finally able to get some much needed rest around 03:00 hours.
The total call volume for engine company 38 was 13 calls while the quint crew stayed well rested while only running three boxes throughout the day.
This dedication and station pride goes to show how much the men and women at company 38 are willing to do to live up to their duty: to protect and serve the citizens of PG County .It also lives up to our company motto "Da Oaks Comes First."
