Flowed so BIG water this weekend at Steve’s Thieves Benefit class! Awesome weekend with some amazing students! Thanks to everyone who attended to help out one of our brothers. We would also like to thank all of our sponsors and our logistical helpers; because without them, none of this would have been possible.

Today was the final day of rural water supply class. Members gained a lot of knowledge and some different tactics thanks to @the_water_thieves. On the final scenario today, they were able to supply two towers for a total flow of 2700 GPM on E-11. Skills taken from the course will he brought back to the department and taught to our members to provide more efficient water supply on future incidents.
Special thanks to Charlottesville FD for allowing us to house E-11 at their station overnight for the class. ... See MoreSee Less
Our department hosted and had several members attend the Essentials in Fire Chaplaincy course presented by the Federation of Fire Chaplains. Instructors Rev. John F. Long, Jr. and Chaplain Blake Bowers presented the material to help us better serve our members and community. Faith serves an important role in the lives of first responders. Firefighters often help people on the worst day of their life. In the same way, fire chaplains provide a service to fire departments through the worst of times.
We want to thank Mission BBQ of Waldorf and Texas Roadhouse of La Plata for providing lunch for all attendees each day. Both organizations go above and beyond to help first responders and we encourage our community to support them in return. ... See MoreSee Less
