The Hyattsville Volunteer Fire Department says 11 new emergency medical technicians have recently joined the department.  Nearly a dozen more are also enrolled in upcoming EMT and paramedic courses, they say.

The department credits its increased recruitment efforts to a Staffing for Adequate Fire & Emergency Response grant, as well as “the tireless efforts of our dedicated recruitment team, EMS officers and support from the department’s leadership.”
