September 16, 2017 - Our volunteers assisted a local family by standing by while a brush pile was burned. We would like to thank you for your donation towards our new fire and EMS station.  Attack 9, Engine 9, Ambulance 9-2 and Chief 9 were staffed and attended the burn.
August 28, 2017 - We performed a walk-through of a barn that is located in our primary fire response area. The owners invited us to the property to review the fire protection systems. We scheduled the event on our company drill nights. The barn is fully covered with sprinklers, detectors and security cameras. The system is supplied by a 10,000 gallon underground cistern. We reviewed the sprinkler room which houses the fire pump, OS&Y valve and risers. We also noted that there is an outdoor fire department connection. The piping that is located in non-heated areas is filled with an anti-freeze solution. All areas have smoke and heat detectors. Another safety factor are the commercial fans in the stalls and wiring that is up to the latest codes. Each stall has an exterior door. This allows for quick evacuation from the building when needed. We would like to thank the owners for the access and the 21 volunteer fire and EMS personnel who attended the event!!!

Impressive.

With the $$ invested in suppression & protection, have they also considered building a separate building for storage of hay?

Wow... thank you for sharing! Would be good to share on the TLAER group page...

Thanks for your service and dedication ! We enjoyed your "company"! Pardon the pun!

Is that barn off 651

Nice, I used to be a volunteer firefighter and a horse person, they did a good job. If I were to build a barn it would have a suppression system.

Well done

September 13, 2017 - Company drill night!! We went to the South Wales subdivision and practiced hydrant operations. The driver/operators practiced hooking up to a hydrant and pumping the apparatus. We charged a small hand line to provide minimal fire flow and pressures for the class.
August 27, 2017 - After returning to the station from an all night fire, our crews were greeted by Girl Scout Troop 3126. These young ladies had visited our station while they were doing their cookie sales (a few months ago). After seeing the conditions that our volunteers face on a daily basis they decided to donate their cookie proceeds towards our building fund!! This group of Girl Scouts proudly presented a $700 check to Little Forks volunteer fire and EMS providers. This money has been deposited in our building fund. We are very impressed and thankful for their hard work and thoughtfulness for both our volunteers and the entire community. The new fire and EMS station is an important component of service to the community. THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!!!

August 26-27 2017 - At approximately 2330 hours, Little Fork was dispatched to assist Salem VFC on the CCA fire located near Boston, Virginia. Units had arrived to find heavy fire in a large commercial structure. Engine 9, Tanker 9 and Utility 9 responded to the incident with 9 volunteers. We were on scene for 12 hours assisting with suppression and water supply. The structure is located in a non-hydrant area and all water had to be shuttled in with tankers. While on scene we had a crew of 4 volunteers who covered the ambulance and pumper in our area. They handled an EMS call and an engine call while we were committed to this incident.
