June is “Move Over Awareness Month” in Virginia

Every year, the month of June is now recognized as “Move Over Awareness Month” in Virginia. The designation became official following Senate Joint Resolution (SJR) 102 of the Virginia General Assembly in 2014. Established in 2002, Virginia’s Move Over law requires drivers to either move over a lane or, when unable to, to cautiously pass all emergency personnel stopped on the side of a road. The law also applies to emergency response vehicles, highway maintenance vehicles and tow trucks equipped with flashing amber lights.

After relieving the Loudoun County Fire and Rescue day staff the Wednesday Volunteers started their shift with a rollover. Everybody was out of the vehicle so it ended up being a fairly standard vehicle collision call. Vehicles were stabilized and secured to prevent further issues, and the occupants were evaluated by EMS crews.

Here's the answer to yesterday's Trivia Tuesday. Many correctly identified it as part of a turntable for a Tower Ladder (from the new Tower 611, of course!). Here's an example of what it will look like when installed and painted. (Yesterday's photo was from above, and the ladder will extend toward the bottom.) ... See MoreSee Less

Is it a teddy bear trying to look like Hannibal Lecter?

That is what is called in some circles, a Hidden Mickey!

Looks like the deck mount for a ladder or tower
