"Stand By To Copy..." from the Prince George's County Volunteer Chiefs' Council

The Prince George's County Volunteer Chief's Council has begun publication of a training bulletin know as "Stand-By To Copy...". Its intent is to keep members current on basic issues that they will encounter on the streets, as well as keep everyone in the mindset of fire suppression.
