Citizen Fire And Rescue Academy Week Two

Last night, September 29, was the second session for the members of our latest Citizen Fire and Rescue Academy class.

The class had an opportunity to visit, and learn more about, the Fairfax County Police Department’s Helicopter Division and how our department works closely with them. As well, the class was visited by several fire and rescue crews and their vehicles. Class members toured each unit and were provided an overview of the capabilities of each vehicle, and the crew assigned, by one of the firefighters.

Lastly, one of our firefighters dressed in full protective gear while another went over each aspect of the gear and why it is so important in the overall protection of our firefighters.

Photos from last night are below. Look for another update next week!
