Such a great ride, venue and cause! Can't wait for next year!

June 16, 2017 - Little Fork provided a mid day shower for the Cub Scouts at Camp Verdun. This has been an annual event for many years. Attack 9 drafted water from one of the ponds and using small forestry line sprayed the scouts. We appreciate the annual invitation and thank all of the adults who took their time (during the week long event) to assist the youth within our community!!!  Attack 9, Ambulance 9-1 and Chief 9 assisted with the event.
June 15, 2017 - Thursday night duty crew went out to a dry hydrant to practice drafting. The drill also included flowing a handline and working with a 2 1/2 straight stream nozzle. Afterwards the pumper was taken to a hydrant and back flushed.
June 14, 2017 - Little Forks drill night. Members practiced several multifaceted operations. Crews practiced hooking the pumper up to a dry hydrant. The driver/operators practiced drafting operations. The other members practiced deploying hose lines and hooked up our Rapid Attack Monitor (RAM). This device flows 500 gallons of water per minute. Our volunteers managed to flow several thousand gallons of water.   The weather took a turn for the worse and a lightning storm suddenly formed nearby. Crews broke the operation down in record time and returned to the station to finish the training. Engine 9, Rescue Engine 9, Rescue 9, Ambulance 9-1 and Chief 9 were staffed for the drill.
June 13, 2017 - Another (22nd) summer in our 40 x 80 four bay garage!! The day room/bunk/kitchen/training/office/bay space reached over 90 degrees!!. Hopefully the temperature will drop into the 80s before the night crew retires for the evening. We really need a fire/rescue station for our volunteers!!!!!!

How are you handling the temp of the meds in the medic unit?

Agreed!

Do another fill the boot 🙂

Do you guys need stuffed animals for kids in accidents? Culpeper PD and Culpeper VFD asked for some a week or so ago. I have a bunch if you'd like them.

Thanks for the offer, but we have three to four large bags of stuffed animals in our building!!! Kids love when our volunteers provide these to them during incidents. Again, thanks for thinking of us!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Thank you for your dedication! I wish I had the money to fulfill the last part of your campaign. I really want a new station for you, you all deserve it and so much more!

June 13, 2017 - If fire/rescue units have dry hydrants in their areas then back flushing is required. Back flushing clears out debris and vegetative growth. Little Fork has several of these devices in our primary response area. This insures that the hydrant will be operational when needed. Tanker 9 pumped 1,000 gallons of water through this hydrant to clear it.
