We invite you to stop by The Venue at Cahoon Plantation on Sunday, October 3 between 11:00-5:00pm. Not only will you get an amazing BBQ meal, but you can spend more time watching football instead of cooking yourself and you will be supporting Jordyn Lee in her fight against Renal Medullary Carcinoma. ALL proceeds will go directly to the Lee family. Spread the word, tell friends and neighbors, and let’s make this a successful fundraiser for Jordyn.

The Chesapeake Fire Department had the privilege of partnering with Atlantic Bay Mortgage Group, Heavenly Realty, and Calm Kids, LLC for a Backpack Giveaway. It was super hot out but definitely worth it to help kids get the supplies they need to head back to school. Thanks to everyone involved including our firefighters at Company 4 who put the new Engine 24 on display.

Hats off to our training division for teaching high-rise tactics this month to every fire company in the city. After months of research and policy review they rolled out the first of several evolutions. The TCC parking garage was creatively turned into a simulated high-rise building for evolutions which required that members pump a FDC, exercise standpipe valves, stretch a 2.5” hose line, and advance on a simulated fire through a mock hallway. New equipment was also introduced which will improve the efficiency of mid-rise and high-rise operations. Excellent job CFD Training Division.

Two-year old Sophia and her family stopped by the firehouse recently to meet the men and women involved in her rescue. It was an emotional time but one that was celebrated by all. Sophia was recently the victim of a water emergency which required firefighters to resuscitate her in order to restore breathing. Today, she is alive because of the swift action of parents and first responders.

The Chesapeake Fire Department is pleased to announce that, from nominations submitted from around the country, it has been selected to receive the 2020 International Association of Fire Chiefs (IAFC) Heart Safe Community Award for Large Communities (population over 100,000) in the United States.

The annual Heart Safe Community Award is a national award presented by the IAFC Emergency Medical Services (EMS) section. The agency selected as a recipient of this prestigious award, must have demonstrated creative approaches to improving therapies for patients with Acute Coronary Syndromes and its life threating complication, sudden cardiac arrest.

The Chesapeake Fire Department, working closely with Pulse Point verified responders, Chesapeake Police Department, and Public Safety Telecommunications, implemented a multifaceted approach to improve cardiac patient care within the city. Working together, a chain-of-survival care system was developed that includes pre-arrival care instructions from the city’s emergency dispatchers, early recognition of ST-Elevated Myocardial Infarctions (STEMI) by field medics, and STEMI review by Chesapeake Regional Healthcare for clinical feedback for performance improvement.

The national recognition of our public and professional teams working together in an integrated response system designed to give our citizens the highest possible level of care for survival of cardiac arrest is an honor and we are pleased to bring this award home to the citizens of Chesapeake.

Thanks for the smile Station 8!
Chesapeake Fire Department and its community: anyone recognize this guy?
Cannot sing the praises of these Chesapeake Fire Department Station 4 firefighters and thank them enough for making this little guy’s day today! With a 3 year old little boy, it’s not unusual for us to end up outside when any first responder vehicles, garbage trucks or construction equipment are in the nearby vicinity of our house. (I promise we’re not out there gawking being nosy neighbors, he’s a fan of the vehicles and their crews! 😂) Even just a wave from a driver gets him giddy, but the amazing unprompted community outreach these guys exemplified today for him was unmatched as they were outside our house doing a training exercise using the hydrant and field next door! Not only did they come over to ease any concerns on why they were there (which we didn’t have, just simply a fan watching the show 😂), once they were done, “Tony” introduced himself and invited Maddox to enjoy a quick impromptu personal tour of the ins and outs of the fire truck and they even offered up a photo op for him before they left. It’s the little kindnesses these days that stand out more than ever in these crazy times, and I couldn’t pass up this opportunity to give these guys (and Tony especially) a major kudos and thank them for going out their way to make this little boy’s day today!

TBT. Salvage 9 out of old #9 in Brentwood. It was originally Rescue 3, 3rd Battalion, and painted white with an orange stripe. Ben Newberry and the volunteers of the Brentwood Volunteer Fire Dept were the keepers of the truck so to speak.
Just wanted to say I love you all and am praying diligently for my family here at the CFD! I am here if you need me and there if you need me. It is a true privilege to work with you and to assist you as a chaplain. Please don't hesitate to reach out to me or the other chaplains. We are a resource for you and your families.
