or through sexual transmission. the biggest concern is for pregnant women because of the severe birth defects associated with the virus. it's a time for preparation. it is a time for people doing the things they need to do to protect themselves. it is a unique disease. it's never before been a disease that is both a virus, mosquito borne, sexually transmitted. it is very unique so you can aware of its uniqueness and respond accordingly. the best way to protect yourselves is to wear long sleeve, use insect repel event and get rid of standing water around your home. we are on our first ever zip trip at night for the newses at 11 here at national harbor in prince george's county on a beautiful evening. we are very happy to be previewing tomorrow trip for the morning team and it's been
great night. it's been an incredible night. there are so many incredible people out here and of course we have a lot of county leaders here. joining us is mark shore, the fire chief. thanks for joining us. before we get into talking about fire safety for the summer. we know that some of your firefighters were involved in an incident in temple hills who were shot when he were trying to get into a home. you were talking about some of your firefighters wear vests similar to the vests thes police officers wear. right. we're in the process of doing you a the due diligence we need to do with the different opportunities that are around there. no decision has been made eulalio tordil but we're going through all the processes include all the stakeholders and in the end we need to do what's right for our folks. i have to imagine it's a fairly complicated process because of that is who gets the vest, who doesn't get a vest, when do you wear them, et cetera. >> i don't think we're going
who plays who does or doesn't. what are the rules for deployment, what are the rules foreign gaugement. these aren't what your fire departments aren't typically used to. a the look of the bigger cities have gone to this already. we are not. certainly that whole situation was really scary. adding a vest under a lot of layers that you guys already put on. is there a lot of resistance or is everybody excited. >> i don't know there's excited. it's about another five pounds of equipment. we're already putting 75 pounds on with the coat and the bottle and everything else that goes on. so five more pounds isn't huge. but if you're wearing it all day long, everything that goes wrong, it's something we're still looking at. let's talk about the holiday weekend that we're heading into. a lot of people cooking out,
picnics, that kind of thing. give us some safety tips, if you will not just for the holiday weekend but as we head into the summer. the number one cause of fires in prince george's county is cooking, whether it's indoor or outdoor can. we know that's the big cause of the fires. the biggest thing we see is people grilling too close to a home or on a balcony somewhere that is not safe. nobody that did that ever said i'm going to burn my house down today, but in the end that's what ends up happening. the law says 30 feet away from a multi-family dwelling and never on a balcony. certainly good tips. finally, let's get on a lighter note here. what do you plan to do this summer? do you have any plans to do anything fun? what are you going to be doing. >> this is it. > you have to do a little more understand here and talk to us. >> we hope to get out to the beach. we have the state fire convention in ocean city. while
