Chesapeake firefighters continue to work the scene of an overturned fuel tanker on Route 17 at mile marker 6. The leak was quickly stopped by our Hazmat Team. Over the next couple hours, holes will be drilled into the overturned tanker and the fuel pumped into another truck. Then cleanup will begin to restore the roadway and spill site. Big thanks to our mutual-aid partners from South Mills FD and Navy Regional.

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!
Members of the Admin and Fire Prevention staff have grown their own mustaches in support of Chloe and Jordyn
Here are two photographs that I took on King Neptune while he was illuminated red in the honor and remembrance of the Fallen Firefighters.
As a member of the Chesapeake Cert Team. This a major shout out to the firefighters that help battle that fire to save some of what left of Gabriel Chapel this morning

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.
