The SVFC was pleased to be able to support Loudoun County Fire and Rescue during the final day of training in an acquired structure. On Friday, LCFR firefighters conducted live fire training scenarios at a house donated to the county for that purpose. Canteen 611 provided food and drinks for the firefighters during a long day of training evolutions.

With an acquired structure, the owner of the structure intends to demolish it, but 'donates' it to the county so the fire department can conduct training in it first. For many weeks, career and volunteer firefighters worked to hone various skills involved in firefighting. Even though all firefighters in Loudoun benefit (in terms of learning skills) from the burn building at the Fire Academy, there is nothing like practicing in a real house. For weeks, the training was conducted without real fires.

But the final day of training is with live fires, which are set at key points within the house, and then firefighters put them out. At the end of the day, with a significant amount of fire damage already impacting the structure, the firefighters set a final fire and let the house fully burn out, prior to final demolition of whatever is left.

Here are a few pictures from throughout the day. More pictures can be found on our SmugMug site. sterlingfire.smugmug.com/LCFR-Training-Burn-February-15-2019

We share this for two reasons. First, to share our thankfulness that the Engine did its job. It saved lives. People often ask us why we park the fire trucks at an angle behind the accident scene. This is why. Second, please SLOW DOWN when you see blue, red, or amber lights ahead of you on the road. There is nothing you can possibly be doing that is more important than the lives of first responders and civilians. #moveover Loudoun County Sheriff's Office Loudoun County Fire and RescueAround 5:20 am Sunday PGFD Engine from Oxon Hill 821 was providing “barrier protection” for accident scene on OL local lane of Beltway prior to RT 210 when a civilian vehicle hit the engine. The 2017 @PierceMfg engine sustained $9k in damage, however, saved crew and civilians on scene-no injuries. The striking vehicle had to swerve to avoid another vehicle driving recklessly on the Beltway. Images provided by Batt Chief D Fletcher ... See MoreSee Less
