The Prince George’s County Fire/Emergency Medical Services Department has adopted a philosophy of “Never Forget” when it comes to honoring the firefighters that paid the ultimate sacrifice on September 11, 2001 in New York City as well as the residents of Prince George’s County that died in the attack on the Pentagon. On this 17th Anniversary of the attack on our Country, we honor the nearly 3,000 people that died that day. We will continue to keep them in our thoughts and prayers, “Never Forget.”
Prince George’s County built a Memorial Park to honor our residents that perished on 9-11-01. The 9/11 Memorial Park, dedicated on September 2011 by County Executive Rushern Baker, is located near the entrance of the Bladensburg Waterfront Park and Peace Cross.
