Large Animal Rescue – October 31, 2012

Little Fork’s Large Animal Rescue Team was dispatched to assist Fauquier County units on Fenton Farm Road. A cow had strayed into a pool and fell through the cover. Warrenton VFC units began pumping the water out while our team planned the rescue with the owners vet. Once the water level was lowered we tried to coerce the bovine to try the steps and then our ramp… to no avail. We then utilized our new Becker Sling and utilized a tractor to lift the animal out. It should be noted that the bovine’s cow tag was number 9, our Company number !! Chief 9, Equine 9 and Rescue 9 responded to this...

Fire volunteers meeting needs

Reproduced from The Culpeper Star Exponent (http://www2.starexponent.com). By Nate Delesline Published: January 27, 2011 Culpeper’s eight volunteer fire and rescue companies are meeting and exceeding the community’s public safety expectations, but they’re in need of funding and more volunteer support to maintain the status quo. “The system is working, the citizens needs are being met,” Culpeper County Volunteer Fire and Rescue Association President Anthony Clatterbuck said Saturday. “No system is perfect, but we’re in better shape than we’ve been in a long time. We’ve got a lot to be proud of for what’s going on right now.” Clatterbuck shared his remarks at a public safety summit, a gathering of the area’s full-time and volunteer public safety workers, along with about a half-dozen elected officials. About 30 people attended the event overall. The fire and rescue association serves as a single point of representation to the town and county for the area’s volunteer emergency worker corps. “We can tell each other the truth,” Clatterbuck said about the relationship between the member agencies. “No one is worried about the repercussions because we’ve got each other’s back.” Without the continued financial support of the county however, Clatterbuck said the age of the volunteer emergency response organization could become history. “We know we’re in a budget crisis and an economic crisis,” Clatterbuck said, “But we’re at the point where it’s financial cancer. You don’t know you’re sick until you’re about to die. “We don’t want to develop stage three or stage four. “If you want to preserve this system, you’re going to have to make a decision,” Clatterbuck said, referring to the elected...
