Department Members Participate in Regional Training

Fire department members from the City of Alexandria, Arlington County, Fort Belvoir, and Fairfax County participated in a regional fire service training seminar on May 3, 2015 at Franconia Fire Station 405.

The training was designed to teach command considerations when dealing with a lost or trapped firefighter.

There was also a comprehensive review of Rapid Intervention Team (RIT) operations, self-rescue techniques as well as a hands on comparison of RIT packs and equipment to ensure inner-operability.

Many thanks to Captain II Todd Barb, Lieutenant Ray Foster and Firefighter Nate Larkin for a job well done!
