Pepco donates smoke alarms to Prince George’s County Fire and Emergency Medical Services.

Pfeifer, Cecil, and Callahan, were preparing electric service for a home being renovated in Upper Marlboro, Md. when they noticed flames and smoke coming from the house. Following their safety procedures and assuming their emergency roles, Callahan and Pfeifer grabbed fire extinguishers off their truck and went into the smoke-filled house to put out the fire that had started in the kitchen. Fire officials credited their quick actions for saving the life of a toddler sleeping in the home.

Pepco donated 700 smoke alarms and 30 smoke alarms for the hearing impaired to the Fire/EMS Department.
