Chillum-Adelphi Volunteer Fire Department Submits For 2014 Community Development Block Grant
Additionally, the improved facility will enable our organization to initiate a community outreach program by hosting various classes at our facility. The classes include state-sponsored programs that can be matriculated for college credits. These classes will be provided free-of-charge to any community member who volunteers their time to help the fire station in any role.
Lastly, these classes are pre-requisites for a host of occupations in the healthcare and public safety industries. By achieving these requisite skills and certification, this program will help community members gain access to stable, well-paying jobs that can be used to support their families.
Historically, a community-based volunteer fire station has been a central element of the neighborhood. This endeavor will allow us to utilize the CAVFD as such an element, and will grant us the ability to be a more integral component of Langley Park's revitalization as part of the Prince George’s County Transforming Neighborhoods Initiative.
