Volunteers Staffing Station 31
By Chief's Aide Al Schwartz
August 5, 2017

Today the Beltsville Volunteer Fire Department operated under a 24hour VSU (Volunteer Staffing Utilization) this is an agreement between the volunteer corporations and Prince Georges County Fire Department to assist in eliminating overtime. Career staff at station 31 would be sent to stations throughout the county to cover for personnel that are scheduled off. In return the department would receive additional funding to assist with day to day operations to run the station. Rumor has it that this program maybe coming to a end due to an agreement between the County and Union, stay turned for more information.
