On a cold Saturday, December 22, 2012, BFD volunteers filled Director Peter Frank's (4th from L) truck with donated toys brought to BFD's 3 fire stations.  Then the team emptied the toys for the kids at Magruder's Discovery, a Montgomery County Housing Opportunities Commission property on Westlake Drive. Who had the most pleasure?  The toy donators? The BFD toy transporters?  The kids?  Safe bet: ALL.

On 3/19/10 Fire Chief Bowers attended the presentation of the new LIFEPAK which is to be used in life-threatening emergencies or acute traumas such as heart attacks, heart stoppage or cessation of breathing.   This monitoring device has a 12-lead EKG (electrocardiogram), carbon monoxide and hemoglobin monitoring, CPR metronome and is 40% faster, with 40% more memory, than older models.  Using LIFEPAK, a patient will be monitored until received by a physician at Montgomery County?s Trauma Center at Suburban Hospital.
 
LIFEPAK is part of an ongoing commitment by the Bethesda Fire Department to ensure that firefighters and paramedics responding to fire or medical emergencies from its three Bethesda Stations, have the best equipment available at all times.  Funds for this vital lifesaving monitoring device were generously donated by the citizens of Bethesda.
