THANKS to the day crew for building a new training prop which has already been put to good use. This prop helps us practice Mayday calls, entanglement/entrapment, forcible entry and window evacuations. Click here to watch a video of firefighter Birckhead blind folded and dealing with entanglement within the built crawling space.
As part of EVFC’s 50th anniversary, we’d like to share the earliest membership photo that we have. All of the charter members are present, except for one, as well as a few other “new” members. It was taken around 1967. In the background is EVFC’s first engine; a 1953 Ford engine, a former county engine that was run by Charlottesville Fire Dept. We salute these members for building a great foundation.
