The first step in becoming a driver is to learn the basics of handling large heavy apparatus, and involves hours of driving in controlled conditions. A cone course was set up at local high school and future drivers learned how it feels maneuver in tight spots and practiced how to move the apparatus safely. ... See MoreSee Less

Busy Night for Wednesday Crew

As the Wednesday volunteers finished dinner storms rolled through the area and kicked off a night of back to back calls. The first call of the night was for Tower 611, a fire alarm in Fairfax County. Shortly after that there was a structure fire in the River Creek area of the county, involving units from Ashburn Volunteer Fire Rescue Department - AVFRD, Leesburg Volunteer Fire Company, and Loudoun County Fire and Rescue. Soon after another fire was reported between Leesburg and Lucketts. Station transfers hadn't happened yet, so Engine 618, Engine 611, and Tower 611 were the first units assigned to that call, along with units from Purcellville Volunteer Fire Company, Fairfax County Fire and Rescue Department, Arcola Volunteer Fire Department, Lucketts, and even Frederick County Maryland. Engine 618 was the first arriving engine and began fire attack, followed by E611 who established a static water supply by drafting from a nearby bridge.

The hours that followed brought a few more fire alarms and EMS calls. Just after 3am Tower 611 was dispatched to Fairfax for a fire in a restaurant. While they were there Engines 618 and 611, along with Sterling Volunteer Rescue Squad and many of the same units from earlier calls, were dispatched for a house fire in Sugarland. The volunteers ended their shift with another fire alarm call, with a total of 3 fire calls among 10 total calls. The career staff kept the pace going with their first call of the day coming right at 6am.
