Our 2019 Pierce Velocity Rescue Company went into service today at the Downtown Leesburg firehouse. Our previous rig, R70099, a 2009 Pierce Lance, went out of service for the last time last week and has been sold to Powhatan County, VA.

The new Rescue Company 20 boasts a full compliment of Holmatro and Paratech extrication/stabilization tools, multiple hand tools, and many other Rescue tools that will greatly assist us in our service to the citizens and visitors of Loudoun County and the Town of Leesburg. We look forward to using this new rig for many years to come!

The firehouse had a special visitor today, “Shadow” the therapy dog in training!

Shadow is working very hard to become a certified therapy dog, and as part of his training he got to come by the firehouse and check out the sights sounds and smells in our Quarters. This will prepare him in the future should he come back to visit this or other firehouses!

None of us are doctors, but the mood seemed to change in a good way when Shadow came by to see us! Therapy dogs are incredibly beneficial assets to have available in a fire department, and we were proud to help Shadow get socialized a little today!

After leading a vehicle stabilization drill as part of our Departments Quarterly Rescue Training, members of Rescue 20 took some time to train on the basics of forcing doors and masking up with gloves on today.

We spend a considerable amount of time drilling on technical rescue disciplines, from high angle rope rescue to confined space and swift water rescue.
