If you completed the Fire/EMS Cadet program or received a degree from the Prince George’s Community College EMS program we want to help you. You obtained an EMT certification and since taking it, your EMT has expired or is near expiring. Maybe you never passed the National Registry certification test. We at the Silver Hill Volunteer Fire Department and Rescue Squad can help you improve your skills, prepare you for the National Registry or help you attain your paramedic certification. Join Us!!! We train every Monday at 7 pm at 3900 Old Silver Hill Road.
The Silver Hill Volunteer Fire Department and Rescue Squad offers postsecondary educational opportunities for those who seek to be a student of the fire and rescue services. In comparison we offer more than most trade schools, preparing individuals for a career field that has better than average pay and benefits. We understand that most individuals will not attend college. Some do not yet have a high enough grade point average to be accepted to college. Our process links students with college credit opportunities with the University of Maryland, University College.
Our program allows students to gain technical experience through a rigorous skill building program. Today’s fire service organizations seek potential candidates with certifications in emergency medical (EMT) and firefighting. We facilitate our members getting training from the Maryland Fire and Rescue Institute (MFRI) which is a part of the Maryland University system. Once trained in order to operate as a emergency medical technician we help our members receive certification through the Maryland Institute Of Emergency Medical Services Systems. Come to our Drill Night at 3900 Old Silver Hill Road to learn more about the Fire and Rescue Services. Come and Join Us!!!
Yes, the badge of honor is real and you can earn one. In fact there is a world where honorable people do honorable things and are recognized for it. We all have a need to live a life of distinction and achievement. You have come upon this message because you seek to lead a life worthy of recognition. The forces of the universe which seeks to help you on your path bought you to this site. It’s ok indulge yourself. Come Join Us!!! Have a life filled with praise and thanks for all the good work you do.
Many people who serve say they don’t volunteer for the thanks and the recognition. That ok for them. Don’t deprive yourself of all those things that come with service. The inner satisfaction, the self gratification and of course the badge of honor. You deserve being connected to a team and an organization that will guarantee you more than the average 15 minutes of fame. Why you can have fortune and fame in the Fire Service!
Come to our drill night which occurs each Monday at 3900 Old Silver Hill Road in Suitland. Our drill and training start at 7 pm.
If you ask yourself whether you meet Jesus’ definition of being a good Samaritan what is your answer? If you volunteer your time as a firefighter, paramedic, emergency medical technician then you no longer have to question yourself. Volunteers meet the requirements laid out in the story of the Good Samaritan in every way because the story is a human story not a spiritual story. It is not a story about perfection. It is a story about service.
- The Good Samaritan was going about his daily travel routine. There was nothing mysterious about what he was doing.
- The Good Samaritan came upon a man laying on the ground who was injured. He was aware of what was going on around him.
- The Good Samaritan bandaged the man up and took him to an Inn. He knew how to help the man.
- The Good Samaritan inquired about how he could help the man in the future. He knew the Inn would provide treatment.
- The Good Samaritan went on his way and the story never indicated that he ever contacted the man again. The Good Samaritan indicated he would check back with the Inn Keeper and not the man he served. He knew the most important part of his relationship with the man was through service.
As Fire Service personnel we provide this type of service everyday. Exchange the word Inn for Hospital and you have this story repeated thousands of times a day all over this Country. Don’t go through life as an on looker to disasters and emergencies. Don’t wish you could do more. Join Us!! We will train you and you can give 24 hours a month to serve others. You can enrich the lives of others and be the Good Samaritan you always wanted to be. Go to the Apply Now page and put in an application. We will email you and get you on the road to service.
Come to the Silver Hill Volunteer Fire Department at 3900 Old Silver Hill Road in Suitland. Share this story with those who you think want to be Good Samaritans but have found no way to express that side of themselves until now.
At 4:02 am I received pictures of the new Probationers responding to a car fire on South Bound Branch Avenue. These members who have just completed fire fighter 1 training got to put their skills to use. We need more new volunteers to take the training to help the citizens during disasters and emergencies. Come Join Us!
