Anyone in the VCC area missing a dog? Please share so we can help find her owner!

Is this your dog? She’s sweet and well behaved, but she doesn’t have a collar. Please share so we can find her owner.

***UPDATE 9:40 PM ***
No word on the owner yet. Unfortunately, we don’t have a safe way to take her with us on any calls tonight. The fine Animal Protection Officers of the Henrico County Police have picked her up. She’ll be well taken care of. Let’s find the owner!

Prayers from Henrico County to Worcester.

Prayers from Henrico County to Worcester.

It is with a very heavy heart that Chief Michael Lavoie, City Manager Edward M. Augustus, Jr. and Mayor Petty announce the devastating loss of Lt. Jason Menard, a member of the WFD since 2010 assigned to Ladder 5, Group 2 at McKeon Road Fire Station. Lt. Menard succumbed to his injuries battling a 4 alarm fire on Stockholm Street this morning, Wednesday, November 13. He leaves behind his wife Tina, 3 children & parents. It is an extremely difficult day for the Worcester Fire Department. Lt. Menard and his crew acted selflessly and heroically. Please keep the family of Lt. Menard, his friends and crew in your thoughts and prayers.

Did we add more lights? Probably. Are we done adding lights?  Probably not. #kidsloveit

“A” Shift Working fire early this morning in Station 19’s first Due (Twin Hickory).

Engine and Rescue 13 were third in. Fire Medic 13 was added later. Engine 13 and Rescue 13 crews went interior providing water suppression, search and rescue, and extensive overhaul. Two residents on the lower level barely escaped through a window. They were both transported to the ER by Henrico Fire Medics 19 & 16, with smoke inhalation.

It was learned they DID NOT have working smoke detectors. We would like to remind everyone, that smoke detectors save lives. Please change your batteries, test weekly, and replace them if over 10 years old.

Today we honor those 19 brave souls who perished fighting the Yarnell Hill Fire. It was started by a lightning strike on June 28th. Two days later, these 19 were overrun and died. Think of them as they went to work on this date, and never returned home.
