Remembering and honoring those who never made it home.

05/28/2021

Congratulations to Battalion Chief Michael Lamb, charter member of the Loudoun Career Fire Fighters Association who has been selected as the May Loudoun County Government Employee of the Month! Mike
is being honored for his outstanding work as a leader in the department, including his consistent willingness to step up and help his colleagues without being asked and his ability to collaborate with his co-workers. He is also being recognized for his key role in setting up the Loudoun County COVID-19 vaccination clinic at the Dulles Town Center.

One of his colleagues calls Mike "the backbone of the department" and the "go-to" person for any questions related to the Fire and Rescue system and says he exemplifies the system's core values of teamwork, integrity, professionalism and service!

05/25/2021

On May 25, 2008, fire and rescue personnel from Loudoun County responded to a structure fire at 43238 Meadowood Court in Leesburg. Crews from Company 6 arrived on the scene to find heavy fire coming from a two-story single-family home. Four firefighters quickly searched the home for occupants and initiated a fire attack while the two apparatus operators conducted exterior tasks.

A rapid and catastrophic change of fire and smoke conditions occurred in the interior of the house. Four personnel from Engine 6 and Tower 6 became trapped on the second floor due to the intense fire, heat and smoke conditions. A Mayday transmission was made and the 4 firefighters were forced to self-rescue from the structure.

During the course of the incident, seven responders were injured. Of those injured, four firefighters received significant burn injuries, two firefighters sustained orthopedic injuries, and one EMS provider was treated for minor respiratory distress. One firefighter, Lt. John Early, was medically retired due to his burn injuries.

There were several investigations, including one conducted by OSHA which included a citation.

There was a long list of changes identified that needed to be done with how we operate as a department. Through the years, we have been chipping away at the list, however, there are a few significant items which **STILL** remain unaddressed **13 years later**. Number 1 on the list of recommendations (Meadowood Report Appendix 1-Recommendations) which still has NOT been implemented is:

1. Increase the System-wide minimum staffing level to at least four qualified Firefighters on all fire suppression units, including engine, truck, and rescue companies.

A more detailed background on that recommendation can be found on page 44 in the Meadowood Report under the “Effective Firefighting Force” section.

The 4th firefighter is critical for the safety of our crews as they provide more manpower on EMS and fire scenes. The NFPA Technical Committee reviewed numerous studies, evaluations and stakeholder reports containing empirical data on departmental response and mitigation of fire. These studies clearly demonstrate that for safe, effective, and efficient fire suppression each responding company needs a minimum of four firefighters. Numerous studies support the four-person minimum. Studies have also shown that more resources on scene of EMS calls means quicker transport time to the hospital and reduces injuries.

In the west end of the county, resources are spread out and crews have to wait a significant amount of time for the next arriving apparatus and manpower to arrive on scene. Having a 4th firefighter would improve fire ground and EMS operations tremendously.

The department has been working to adopt NFPA 1710 (Standard for the Organization and Deployment of Fire Suppression Operations, Emergency Medical Operations, and Special Operations to the Public by Career Fire Departments). NFPA 1710 addresses proper staffing levels of apparatus, which includes a 4th firefighter on the engine, as well as response times. The OSHA citation also addresses the need to adhere to NFPA 1710.
