Little Fork Volunteers To The Rescue

Suzie, happy to hear that he is back home. We will pass this information to the crews!! Chief Monaco. ... See MoreSee Less

July 22, 2016 - At 15:11 hours we were dispatched for a pedestrian struck in the 10000 block of Rixeyville road. The County medic unit was also dispatched to assist. Upon arrival crews found an 80 year old who had been struck by a car while attempting to retrieve his mail. A helicopter was summoned to transport him to a trauma center. Ambulance 9-1 assisted the medic unit with patient care and Rescue Engine 9 set up a landing zone on the soccer field at Emerald Hill School.  The patient was transported to the trauma center at UVA.

Spencer NixLong as the driver got to have that phone right in their face........ Somethings gotta give. As a society we say we must take action on distracted drivers, but all votes to toughen the laws are voted down.........

July 22, 2016 - One year ago we had a local resident stop by the station complaining of not feeling right - he thought he was having a blood sugar problem. The crew performed a thorough evaluation on him and decided to run a 12 lead EKG. They found that he had a blocked heart artery and immediately summoned a helicopter and our engine company to set up a landing zone at the station. This team work saved this persons life (by the immediate transport to a facility that could open his artery up as soon as he arrived). Today he stopped by the station and brought the crews a cake as a thank you!!  THANKS BOB!! We appreciate you thinking about us!!!!

Melissa MainvilleHe couldn't have had a better crew in the back of that ambulance. The three EMT's worked deligently. I think we had a total of 19 people respond to help with EMS operations and setting up the landing zone for the helicopter. It was an incredible moment for myself to load him in that helicoptor and watch them take off. So happy to hear that everything is going well. Will make a special trip to the station to have a taste of that cake!!!

July 18, 2016 - We had severe thunderstorms go though our area. We were dispatched to a tree down on fire. Upon arrival we found a tree across Oak Shade Road with power lines entangled in the branches. The breakers on the power poles had shut the power down, so we blocked the road with fire line tape and left the scene. Rescue Engine 9 and Ambulance 9 responded to this mid-afternoon incident.

July 15, 2016 - There was a four vehicle collision on Rixeyville Road at Black Hills Road at approximately 1710 hours. Luckily there were no injuries but the wreckage created a severe traffic jam. The road had to be totally blocked for 20-30 minutes while four wreckers worked together at the same time to clear the roadway. In addition to the four, one had a trailer attached that also needed to be towed. There was debris throughout the area that had to be cleared. Our personnel assisted the State Police and the Sheriffs Office with the traffic issues. Ambulance 9-1 and Rescue Engine 9 responded to this incident.

July 14, 2016 - Luckily, the station had cooled off to 96 degrees with 90 % humidity when the CPR class started at 1830 hours. Six of our members attended the course. Five needed to recert and one of our new members needed the course to ride the apparatus. By the time the evening rain stopped the temperature had fallen to 92 degrees and this made the classroom/bay space more tolerable. We are happy to report that all of the students passed the course!! A big thank you to the instructors who assisted and tolerated the conditions. The overnight duty crew advised that by 0300 hours the temperature had dropped to a mere 80 degrees........we really need to move out of this garage and into a fire station......to help please visit our web site and donate through Paypal......THANK YOU !
July 13, 2016  - More drill pics!!
July 13, 2016 - Company drill night! We relocated to a local dry hydrant and practiced drafting water from a pond. First we hooked up to the dry hydrant and drafted. We then disconnected and switched to using a float dock strainer with 20 feet of hard suction hose from a side intake. Pump operators got to practice pumping while the rest of our fire and EMS crews operated a smooth bore 2 1/2 hand line. We switched over to a Rapid Attack Monitor and practiced flowing 500 gallons per minute using only one fire fighter/EMS provider at a time. The line officers would like to thank the eighteen volunteers who participated in this activity. After returning to the station we performed a critique and discussed each operation and ways in which we could improve our operations.

July 8, 2016 - Little Fork was dispatched for a report of a motorcycle collision that was on fire. This incident occurred at approximately 1850 hours on Alum Springs Road. Arriving units found a motorcycle off the road fully involved. Sadly, the operator was pronounced as deceased (upon arrival) by our EMS crew. The fire was extinguished quickly and the scene was immediately turned over to law enforcement. We would like to express our condolences to the family and friends of the rider. Engine 9, Chief 9 and Ambulance 9-1 answered this call with eight volunteers. We would also like to thank the off duty fire marshal who stopped to assist before our arrival.
