March 20, 2017 - At approximately 0500 hours we were dispatched to a report of a hay bale on fire on Butler Store Road. We arrived to find a bale that had been pushed into the road and lit on fire. Engine 9 and Shock Trauma 9 responded and mitigated the incident.

March 8, 2017 - The Culpeper County Schools provided a school bus for our monthly drill. John Walsh the Director of Transportation gave our members an overview of the bus and its safety components. We discussed access points for extrication and how to best remove the students in case of an emergency. Part two of the drill consisted of placing several "injured" Beanie Babies throughout the bus and running a triage drill with our members. Members were divided into crews to provide 5 ambulances and two engine companies. Command was established, triage tagging, movement into the treatment area for further evaluation and then they were transported to several surrounding hospitals and trauma centers with either transport units or helicopters. The Director and Assistant Director of the Culpeper Dispatch Center assisted with the drill. The drill was a complete success!!!! Thanks to everyone who participated including the 29 Little Fork members!!! We are happy to report that none of the Beanie Babies were injured during this drill and they were safely returned to thier owner!!! ... See MoreSee Less
