August 13, 2016 - This afternoon we were dispatched for a report of a motorcycle collision on Ryland Chapel Road. Units arrived to find the operator on the side of an embankment in the brush. The rider did not have a helmet on when the collision occurred. A quick assessment was performed by EMS and a helicopter was summoned. The landing zone was established in a field next to the collision area by Rescue Engine 9. Ambulance 9-1 treated and transported the rider to the LZ. Seven Little Fork volunteers responded to assist with this incident. The person was flown to Fairfax Trauma center.

August 10, 2016 - Little Forks company drill was held in the South Wales subdivision. The hydrant system was recently reinstalled and was approved for usage by the water authority. We practiced hooking up to the hydrant system and pumped from one pumper to the other. A deck gun was utilized for fire flow. We started out flowing 350 gallons per minute and increased the flow to 1000 gallons per minute. Rescue Engine 9, Engine 9, Ambulance 9-1, Ambulance 9-2 and Chief 9 were staffed and utilized for the drill. We would like to thank the 18 volunteer members who participated in the 2.5 hour drill.

August 5, 2016 - Little Fork was dispatched to a report of an auto collision on Springs Rd near Kings drive. The incident was found on the curves east of this intersection. A vehicle with two occupants  was found with one entrapped with the passenger side door against a tree bent over and pinning a leg. Upon arrival the driver was removed quickly to gain access to the passenger and was treated by Ambulance 9-1. Chief 9 established command with assistance requested for a helicopter, a heavy rescue, another transport unit along with another engine company to set up a landing zone. After an initial confirmation the helicopter cancelled due to weather so the additional engine was cancelled. Ambulance 9-1 transported the driver to Fauquier Hospital. Brandy Station Volunteer Fire Department responded with their Rescue and Warrenton VFC responded with Tower 1. Little Forks Rescue Engine 9s crew began the extrication process, removing glass and cutting the roof supports while assisting the passenger. Medic 12 arrived and continued with care while the combined crews developed an extrication plan and finished the operation. The second patient was transported to Fauquier Hospital. We would like to thank Brandy Station, Warrenton and the county medics for their assistance on this challenging extrication incident.
