The SVFC has received word from the U.S. Fire Administration and the National Emergency Training Center in Emmitsburg that the flags at the National Fallen Firefighters Memorial Park are at half-staff in honor of Firefighter Trevor Brown.
May all personnel of Loudon County and SVFC know that everyone is in our thoughts and prayers. Given the circumstances, ALL personnel did a fantastic job on scene! Our Thin Red Line Flag is flying proudly, lights on our garage have been lit up Red since that tragic night, and will remain red until FF Brown is laid to rest. Let the bells ring, may he Rest In Peace, may all recovering Members make a swift and full recovery. ❤️🩹
The fire department is all one big brother and sisterhood. When one hurts we all hurt.
Fantastic news! Welcome home!We are ecstatic to announce that Brother Chris Kerkstra is home from the Washington MedStar burn center. Lt. Kerkstra was the T611 officer who was trapped in the basement who required an extensive tunneling operation to be freed and he was able to walk out on his own once he had a path out. The family requests some time before friends come to visit.
Thank you to the DC Firefighters Burn Foundation and the MedStar ICU staff for taking such great care of his wife Jamie and continuing to care for the Diamond family.

Today we welcomed home FF Keesler, one of the SVFC firefighters injured in the house explosion. As is the fire & rescue tradition, we greeted him with cheers as he left the hospital, and again as he arrived at home. We want to thank everyone involved in supporting today's effort for FF Keesler. We are all one family!
