Chrissy Sheads CooperSuch a bad intersection!! They are putting a subdivision there!! I hope they do something to make it safe. Don't want anyone else to have to experience having to drive up on a family member involved in a accident there!!

Courtney JonesSo many accidents at this intersection. I don't understand how, it's pretty visible whether someone is coming before you pull out? Help me understand! (Not this particular accident, just in general)

Sue ChurchwellExcellent work! Looks like poor Blaze had been stuck there for quite some time (judging by the poop & pee spot). So glad he was a calm boy for the duration. Thanks for coming to his rescue!

Tommy MaguireThat's a good looking tanker. The other apparatus looks good. I like the tanker the best. The cab, frame and suspension.

June 20, 2016 - We applied for and were awarded a dry hydrant grant from the Va Div of Forestry. The state contractor; Silver Creek installed the hydrant in a pond on Ryland Chapel Road. This dry hydrant will assist with providing water for large fires in that area. We would like to express our thanks to the property owner.  By coincidence, we received an award letter from the Forestry Department for the installation of another dry hydrant off Cloverhill Road in the Lakota area while these pictures were being taken. The Cloverhill Road hydrant will be installed in the next fiscal year!!

June 18, 2016 - Busy day for some of our members. The entrance ramp to our storage shed needed to be replaced. Several boards had fallen off and we have members protective clothing stored in this shed (there is not enough room in our garage for everyones PPE). When we have calls some members have to retrieve their gear from this shed before they can get on the ambulance and/or fire truck--this tripping hazard needed to be corrected!!!  Thanks to everyone who helped with the repair!

June 15, 2016 - At 0120 hours we were dispatched to a difficulty breathing incident involving a young child. Luckily, this proved to be non life threatening and units cleared very quickly. Just as we returned to quarters we were dispatched (0205 hours) to assist on a working fire involving a bulk storage building and several vehicles in Salems area. Engine 9 and Tanker 9 responded to assist with six firefighters. We left two of our volunteers at the station to cover our ambulance while we were involved in suppression operations. We cleared and returned to service at 0415 hours. This proved to be a long night for some of our volunteers!!!

Richard G BinglerA big thank you to LF for checking out a explosive gas alarm at my residence. Even though it was a defective sensor, it brought piece of mind.

June 11 and 12, 2016 - We hosted a Commonwealth of Virginia Basic Pump Course over the past two days. Firefighters from Culpeper and Fauquier County attended the course which covers the basics of operating fire department pumpers. We would like to thank Richardsville Fire-Rescue for providing one of the two pumpers used for the practical evolutions on Sunday.

June 10, 2016 - While returning from Culpeperfest the Equine 9 crew arrived on the scene of a first due auto collision (19:38 hrs) on Rixeyville Road and Double H Acres Lane -- just moments after it occurred. We requested the dispatch of Little Fork and provided immediate care to the injured. Ambulance 9-1, Ambulance 9-2 and the Rescue Engine responded to assist (and Ambulance 9 was staffed while they transported). A total of four children and one adult were transported to Fauquier hospital with minor injuries. Rescue Engine 9 and Chief 9 assisted with clearing the roadway and providing traffic control.
