ROCKVILLE, Maryland - - The Washington Freedom is the region's elite, professional women's
soccer team and Montgomery County Fire and Rescue Service (MCFRS) is honored to have been selected by the club to be recognized at this weekend's game recognizing First Responders.
Stars from the Freedom will be stopping by Bethesda Fire Station 6 TODAY to test their skills off the turf. Sliding down the firehouse pole may prove more challenging than the pressure of rocketing a soccer ball thru the goalposts at high velocity … or not. These seasoned athletes definitely have what it takes and are going the extra mile to ensure that the community also has what it takes to be fire safe - - - working smoke alarms.
“The Washington Freedom is an outstanding organization and is doing great things in the community,” said Fire Chief Richie Bowers. “If any one can KICK off our Spring into Summer Safely campaign - - - it’s these athletes who are champions both on the field and off.”
