Station 9 is getting an upgrade!! Brand new Bifold Doors being placed on the apparatus bay! These style doors open faster and are easier for our drivers to see that they are fully open before leaving. This gives us a slight advantage to get to your emergency just a little bit faster. Not to mention it’s a nice little nod to the days of horse drawn fire apparatus.

Late post. After the first line of rain storms went through the area, rescue 109 spent 4 hours filling in at DCFD fire station engine 15/ rescue 3 while they operated at a structure collapse. Rescue 109 handled 2 calls while covering the area. Engine and medic 109 kept busy running calls in Arlington while the rescue was helping our neighbors. Upon returning to Arlington County, a second line of storms went through the area. Company 9 and ACFD units kept busy through the night handling numerous calls for service.

The members of Sta. 9 are saddened to hear about the loss of ACPD Bomb K9 George. We came to know and love George as one of our own as he loved to come visit our firehouse. We adopted George as our Official Mascot and even filled out transfer papers with his dog print on it for him to switch over to the fire department. He lit up the faces of our members anytime he came running into the firehouse along side his partner Corporal Williams. We will miss him.

Company 9 took advantage of the beautiful weather this morning to do a little spring cleaning of the walk in and vacuuming the cab on the rescue. Just one of the many behind the scene things we do.

Have you checked your smoke detectors lately? Changing the time on your clock can serve as a great reminder to check your smoke detectors to ensure they are in working order.

Just a little work. Mix of C shift and A shift personal working this incident.

Captain Shamblin spent the last few years of his career as the Station Commander of fire station 9 assigned to the A Platoon. It was great to see Tom back in the station. You are truly missed.

Retired Captain II Thomas Shamblin receiving his retirement shadow box from Assistant Chief Reshetar! Captain Shamblin retired on January 7th, 2020 after serving the citizens of Arlington County for 33+ years! Thank you for your service and we hope retirement continues to treat you well. #ACFD #retirement #captain #fire #EMS

The members of Company #9 have been busy since our last post. Many of our normal operations include responding to emergencies, training with our probationary members, station duties and Metro Station Inspections. In addition to all these things, each shift has participated in an 8 hour hazmat drill. As one of the two stations for the county that make up the county hazmat team, we add these drills to our monthly schedule to help keep our skills up to date.
We would also like to welcome FF. Raley back to full duty. Its nice seeing you back on the rig again.

Today marks the day the new Rescue 109 goes in service. This rescue is a Pierce Ride in Rescue that is different from rescues of the past. This configuration will allow for additional Hazardous Materials Equipment to be placed on the rig. Here B Shift is doing the ceremonial “Push In” as was done in the days when apparatus were horse drawn. Watch for this apparatus responding to calls in the next few days!!

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.

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.
