Northern Virginia Fire Rescue Leadership Development Institute "NVFR LDI"

Northern Virginia Fire Rescue Leadership Development Institute "NVFR LDI" Northern Virginia Fire & Rescue Leadership Development Institute (NVFR LDI) Offers Premier Learning Targeted at Advancing the Region's Elite Officers.

The Northern Virginia Fire and Rescue Leadership Development Institute (NVFR LDI) is an innovative residency-based curriculum that has been developed to address the particular leadership and management needs of the fire service. The institute is held annually in or around the Northern Virginia Region. This year The NVFR LDI will be hosting two distinctly separate programs geared towards targeting the leadership and management functions required for officers of the fire service. During the week the students will live on-campus, beginning the day early with physical training, attending lectures throughout the day, and working until late into the evening, completing assignments and conducting practical exercises to culminate their learning. These programs have been developed to empower fire officers with skills and abilities to enhance the leadership and management characteristics which they have already demonstrated in their own organizations. The programs are not intended to address remedial skill training; but rather to take emerging leaders to a new level of performance. The NVFR LDI contracts the highest quality nationally recognized leadership experts to deliver cutting edge leadership concepts. This program creates an environment that simulates the pressures and stresses that officers will encounter as they supervise personnel through high quality role-playing exercises that will give them the opportunity to put into practice the new skills that are presented. The NVFR LDI experience demands a candidate that has demonstrated a desire to improve their own performance as a strong leader. They are individuals that their department believes will become the future leaders of the organization. They are individuals that will embrace the opportunity to improve their leadership skills for the good of the organization. Candidates need to have a well-rounded and diverse background that can contribute to the classroom experience and ultimately will be a benefit to their department after graduation.

Mission: Leadership through Empowerment, Encouragement, and Excellence.

Today we want to highlight the First Responder Fair Retire Act, also known as HR-1256 or S-531. This bill doesn't just help out federal firefighters. It also helps our brothers and sisters in blue as well as Air Traffic Controllers as we all are under FERS Special Retirement.

You see, currently we all pay into our retirement different than that of a regular government employee. We pay a higher amount because we are forced to retire at age 50 with 20 years or 25yrs at any age but, we must go at age 57.

So, that being said, if any of us are injured on the job and can no longer work in our respective field as a first responder the government could shift us to another job at the lower retirement rate and we would lose thousands in retirement over night.

This bill seeks to allow us to continue paying into the FERS Special Retirement without that loss.

Please react out to your Representatives and tell them to support this bill. Let us know if you need help making contact with your specific Representative or Senator

LADDER PARLOR TRICKS. Messing with some OV team workflow yesterday and shooting ideas around. We were talking about using a long extension low angle ladder as both the access and roof ladder on an unwalkable pitch.

Someone floated this idea for heeling the ladder. It worked well. You can often just sink the heels in the dirt (my plan A), and I hate to lose tools to this - but always good to have multiple ideas and look at problems a different way.

Whether I love or hate an idea, I love firemanship, thinking through problems, and exchanging ideas. Maybe you’ll use an idea, maybe you find you won’t, maybe it leads to another idea another time. It’s all worth something....

Stay hungry. Get after it. Happy Friday.

We know a lot of you might be feeling anxious about the COVID-19 situation. We want to let you know that we are here 24/7 Fort Belvoir. Our emergency services personnel continue to fully staff all firehouses, apparatus, and the emergency communications center.

We are responding to every call and doing everything we can to ensure our community and our providers stay safe & healthy. Our normal work continues even though we might look a little different.

This week, Leadership has increased employee and facility wellness initiatives. No community events or public activities are taking place in any of our facilities. Visitors will only be authorized entry on a situational basis. If an approved purpose, visitors will be screened and required to undergo personal decon measures prior to entry. We are a community oriented organization and to remain healthy, we appreciate everyone’s understanding of our current posture changes.

Be assured that we are preparing now so that we can provide consistency in our operations and service delivery should we begin to see increased calls for service. We hope we won’t have to use these contingency plans but we are prepared.

Please wash your hands, don’t touch your face, and practice social distancing yourself as it is essential. #KilltheVirus US Army Fort Belvoir Garrison Commander Fort Belvoir MWR US Army Military District of Washington

Do you know the Melting/Failure Temperatures of Fire Service PPE?

Here are a few nuggets that you may find interesting:

SCBA Composite Bottles 1700 degrees Fahrenheit for 10 seconds and still function.

SCBA Facepiece: 446 degrees Fahrenheit Polycarbonate Melts (Fails at 20 kW/m2 heat flux).
"SCBA lens's exterior surface temperature reached 280 degrees Celsius (536 degrees Fahrenheit), about the midpoint of the range of published polycarbonate melt temperatures. The lens developed a significant hole, according to the NIST report." (A Mensch, G Braga and N Bryner, Fire Exposures of Fire Fighter Self-Contained Breathing Apparatus Facepiece Lenses. NIST Technical Note 1724, Nov. 2011. The report can be accessed at

Firefighter Radios- The failures occurred while the radios were subjected to a temperature of 160 degrees Celsius (320 degrees Fahrenheit), termed Thermal Class II conditions.** The temperature is representative of a fully involved fire or conditions outside a room when its contents burst into flames simultaneously, a phenomenon known as flashover.

The greatest part of our business....Our Community! Today, we celebrated Dr. Seuss’ by participating in #ReadAcrossAmerica at the Fort Belvoir primary & secondary school. The importance of reading for children Read Across America Day was created to get more kids excited about reading and we are pretty sure it gets our firefighters more excited.

We not only had the Fire Chief and 12 more firefighters, our administrative professional Mrs. Kramer and the US Army Fort Belvoir Garrison Commander’s Administrative Professional
Ms. Nieves joined us as we emphasized reading skills help children develop better communication skills as well as improved comprehension across all school subjects.

We also talked with many about the importance of a smile. You don’t have to have a Dr Seuss wocket in your pocket, just a smile on your face makes the world a better place!

If you were able to read this, thank a teacher, parent, and/or someone else that helped you learn to read.
