On April 19 and 20, four WVRS volunteers took Rescue Squad 742B to PG Station 27 (Morningside) to respond to calls while PG units were at the funeral service for Firefighter/Paramedic John Ulmschneider. FF/PM Ulmschneider was shot and killed last week while responding to a “check the welfare call.” Firefighter Kevin Swain, a volunteer with the Morningside Fire Department, was also shot four times and remains hospitalized.

The WVRS offers our condolences to the PGFD and the friends and family of slain PGFD Firefighter John Ulmschneider. Our thoughts and prayers are also with Firefighter Kevin Swain as he recovers from his injuries.
