Today we honor the memory of Captain Charles Theodore who died in the line of duty June 24, 1961. Captain Theodore suffered smoke inhalation after leading the crew of Engine 10 to an apartment fire on the fifth floor of the Tyler Building of the Arlington Towers project (now called River Place). Captain Theodore was pronounced dead at Arlington Hospital. Theodore, 39, joined the fire department in 1944 and was promoted to captain in 1953. He was married and the father of three children.

Yesterday members from Sta. 9 assigned to the Hazmat Team spent a few hours on this incident.

#Update: The source of the spill into Four Mile Run was determined to be an underground oil tank in the area of S. Carlin Springs Road and Columbia Pike. A clean up contractor, our #HazMat team, and other county agencies are on scene. Use caution in the area as there is a sheen of product on the roadway.

Crews from Rescue 109 participated in the evaluation of new breathing apparatus both yesterday and today.

Keeping firefighters safe is critical & expensive, so when it's time to purchase new equipment, we put a lot of time & effort in to research & testing to ensure we make wise, cost effective purchases that will hold up to the job, & keep our members from getting injured. We're currently testing different brands of Self Contained Breathing Apparatus and turnout gear with our partners at DC Fire And EMS Members are using the equipment while they perform numerous reps of normal fire functions to see what equipment will best serve us while we serve our communities.

On Friday April 27, 2018, family, friends and future crew mates packed the Founders Hall Auditorium at George Mason University’s Arlington campus to celebrate Recruit Class 75’s graduation ceremony. The ceremony marked the end of a 28-week assignment to the Fire Training Academy. During that time, recruits underwent grueling physical and mental training to prepare them to enter the field as Firefighter/EMT’s.

Over the course of their assignment to the Fire Training Academy, Recruit Class 75 earned certifications for Firefighter I & II, Emergency Vehicle Operations, Hazmat Operations, and National Registry Basic Emergency Medical Technician. Numerous topics are incorporated into those certifications including fire science, fire history, pump operations, firefighter rescue, terrorism awareness, Rescue Task Force, and live fire training to name a few. All through school, the recruits participated in strenuous physical fitness training to prepare for the rigors of school as well as their job when they get assigned to fire stations.

During the ceremony itself, remarks were made by Arlington County Board Chair Katie Cristol and Arlington County Manager Mark Schwartz. Ty Dickerson, Fire Chief of the Lexington, Virginia Fire Department delivered the keynote address. All recruits were honored for their efforts, sworn in, and presented their helmets and badges. There were also special awards given for Physical Fitness (for highest overall fitness scores), Most Improved Fitness, Academics, and Leadership. The class also presented the traditional gift to the Fire Training Academy. This gift often holds some significance to the experiences shared between the class and training cadre during their time together at the Fire Training Academy. The ceremony ended with the retiring of the class guidon (class flag). Reverend Dr. Leonard Hamlin, Fire Department Chaplain, delivered the benediction. Captain Norman Graham then gave the final dismissal of Recruit Class 75.

Congrats to you all! Keep up the good work! See you in the field.
