Members from Co. 9 symbolically pushed the new engine into its new quarters just as firefighters used to push their new wagons into their stations before motorized apparatus entered the fire service. This is a time honored tradition in the fire service. We are happy to have this new apparatus and welcome it to our fleet!

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.

My dad, Assistant fire chief, Tom Cain opened Station 9, when he had just made Capt. He and his men formed a family tie, and he would be proud that you are carrying on the traditions.
