A teen was injured when he fell through the skylight of a Prince George's County firehouse while performing community service on Aug. 27.

The 18-year-old male was using a leaf blower to remove debris from the roof of the Greenbelt Fire/EMS station when he fell 15 feet to the floor below, according to a department press release.

He was immediately tended to by paramedics inside the station and was transported to a nearby trauma center.

His injuries are not considered serious and he remained conscious and alert.

Greenbelt police as well as the fire department will be reviewing the incident.

Pitching them to finish blowing the leaves off the roof, lol!! Then whatever else you can sell them on that building. After an accident they are probably going to be more safety conscious for a little while, and that's when guys like us can sell them services. And if your really lucky on top they may have bingo tonight??

No volunteer your service to show how to properly and safely clean a roof. Sell it as communityservice demo to infrom the community. Lots of FREE PRESS for your business.

Many years ago I installed skylights at Cherry Creek Mall in Colorado. It was about a 60' drop to the main level. I'm a pretty big boy. I weighed 230 plus I was carrying a skylight. We walked right on top of the skylights we just set. That was freaky the first 20 times. They held our weight just fine. Must be a totally different type of lite.

These comments have me wondering if I want to be affiliated with the RCIA any longer.  The kid just fell TODAY.

The idea of profiteering due to someone's misfortune doesn't set too well with me.

And as was recently (obviously) pointed out, customers read this forum.  Think long and hard folks.  If the mighty dollar means that much to you, you may have some soul searching to do.

Flame me now.  I really don't care.  Shame on you.

Sorry you feel that way. I was just trying to turn a negative into a positive. Many HO never think about the risk we all take climbing ladders and getting on roofs every day to clean there roofs. Many are just looking at the bottom line. What we do is dangerous work and Ho take that for granted. Now here is a perfect example of why you should hire a Professional and not put your kid on a roof. That's way I said do it for free and if he was to get some free press it's a win win. Maybe just one more kid or HO doesn't fall off a roof because they called Gutterdog well that's PRICELESS

A combined effort by multiple RCIA members could really shine some light on the safety that most take for granted. It could be good for all the RCIA members in the area there. I'm almost certain that there are multiple news agencies that would be interested in running a story on RCIA members interested in promoting safety.

I put a link on my home page. Let HO know the dangers, let the pros do it.

Roofs are no joke.  It's not the place to be if you don't know what you're doing.  I come from a entire family of window cleaners.  And all of us have fallen off a roof at some point in the past 20 years.   Don't even get me started on how many falls  / close calls we've had on ladders.  Occupational hazards that can be minimized at best.
