For Immediate Release:

At 11:50 am Friday, December 16, 2022, Portsmouth Fire Rescue and Emergency Services, Chesapeake Fire, and Navy Region Fire responded to a commercial fire in the 3800 block of Elm Avenue.

Firefighters found heavy smoke from the rear of the building, roof area, and the structure that houses the conveyor belt. After establishing a collapse zone due to the instability of the conveyor belt structure, Firefighters strategically positioned several aerial ladder trucks and used master streams to battle the blaze.

The affected building, A Wheelabrator facility, is a waste-to-energy—facility. An employee at the facility reported that the conveyor belt, which moves the trash, was on fire. All employees were able to exit the building safely.

The Incident Commander requested a second alarm upon arriving on the scene and assessing the magnitude of the fire. After battling the blaze from the defensive position on the exterior, Firefighters were able to enter the structure and initiate an interior fire attack on the topmost floor where an active fire was beyond the reach of the aerial ladder trucks.

The coordinated fire attack contained the fire to its area of origin, and the Incident Command deemed the fire under control at 1:47 pm. Fire crews remain on the scene, searching for hotspots and performing overhaul. There were no juries to report for any firefighters or civilians.

The event took place during adverse weather conditions as well as in close proximity to the Elizabeth River. The patient was transported to a local hospital for minor injury evaluation.

12 Days of Fire Safety

On the 10th day of Holiday safety we’re reminded to get rid of the tree after Christmas or when it is dry. Dried-out trees are a fire danger and should not be left in the home or garage or placed outside against the home. Bring outdoor electrical lights inside after the holidays to prevent hazards and make them last longer. And keep in mind, extension cords are intended for temporary use.

12 Days of Fire Safety

On the 11th day of Holiday safety, we’re reminded stay in the kitchen when cooking on the stovetop. The leading cause of fires in the kitchen is unattended cooking. If you leave the kitchen for even a short period of time, turn off the stove. Keep anything that can catch fire — oven mitts, wooden utensils, food packaging, towels, or curtains — away from your stovetop.

If you have a small (grease) cooking fire and decide to fight the fire...
• On the stovetop, smother the flames by
sliding a lid over the pan and turning off the
burner. Leave the pan covered until it is
completely cooled.
• For an oven fire, turn off the heat and keep
the door closed.

If you have any doubt about fighting a small fire…
• Just get out! When you leave, close the door
behind you to help contain the fire.
• Call 9-1-1 from outside the home

12 Days of Fire Safety

Almost one third of home Christmas tree fires are caused by electrical problems. Fires can start when heat builds up near things that burn, which can include a hot light bulb. Therefore, on this 6th day of holiday safety, we’re reminded to always turn off Christmas tree lights before leaving home or going to bed.

12 Days of Fire Safety

Candle fires peak in December and January, and more than one-third of home decoration fires are started by candles. So on this 5th day of holiday safety, we’re reminded to use battery operated candles when possible. If using real candles, make sure they are placed in a non-flammable surface. Blow out lit candles when you leave the room or go to bed and never use lit candles to decorate the tree.

12 Days of Fire Safety

On this 4th day of Holiday Safety, we’re reminded to Keep decorations away from windows and doors and prevent trees from blocking exits. Exits that are cluttered or blocked, could add precious time in the event of an emergency evacuation.

It’s also important to make sure electrical cords are not running across doorways or under carpets. Compression or kinks in cords create heat, that over time can melt a wire covering and cause a fire.

12 Days of Fire Safety

On this 3rd day of Holiday Safety, we’re reminded to make sure trees and decorations are at least three feet away from any heat source, like fireplaces, radiators, candles, heat vents, or lights.

Roughly 40% of fires involving holiday decorations, occur because decorations are placed too close to a heat source.

Choosing decorations that are flame resistant or flame-retardant help reduce your risk for fire.

12 Days of Fire Safety - Day #2

On this second day of Holiday safety, we are reminded to replace any string of lights that have worn or broken cords or loose bulb connections. Use clips, not nails, to hang lights so the cords do not get damaged. It’s also important to read the manufacturer’s instructions for number of light strands you can safety connect. And don’t overload circuits!

Important Reminder:

Call a qualified electrician or your
landlord if you have:

• Frequent problems with blowing
fuses or tripping circuit breakers
• A tingling feeling when you touch
an electrical appliance
• Discolored or warm wall outlets
• A burning or rubbery smell coming
from an appliance
• Flickering or dimming lights
• Sparks from an outlet

The 12 Days of Fire Safety

Winter greens, flickering lights, and hours spent making feasts are all hallmarks of the holiday season. Unfortunately, these festivities also mean greater risk of fire. To help ensure your celebrations stay joyful, we’ll be posting safety tips over the next 12 days.

On this first day of holiday safety, were reminded to choose a tree with fresh, green needles that do not fall off when touched. Adding water to the tree stand daily will help prevent the tree from drying out. A dry tree is a particularly dangerous tree. Although Christmas tree fires are not common, when they do occur, they are more likely to be serious.

11/18/2022

Today, Portsmouth Fire Rescue and Emergency Services took possession of a new Rosenbauer Commander Pumper. This pumper was a demo unit purchased under an emergency procurement process, allowing Portsmouth to place the unit in service asap. With recommendations from the Apparatus Committee, and the swift actions of our City Manager and city staff, this truck was purchased and delivered in under 3 months.

With custom units taking more than 24 months to be fabricated, this purchase provides immediate support to our fleet and reduces the strain on Fleet Services with increasing supply costs and extensive shipping delays. This truck is in addition to the 3 medics (One arriving next week), 1 Engine, and 1 Truck Company.

The truck is currently at the shop having Radios installed and will return to the dealer for David Clark Headsets and other minor installs, before returning home and being placed into service at Fire Station 10 in December.

Again, Great job to our Apparatus Team, Captain Pociask, and Fleet Services Manager Nick DeVault for their efforts in this process.

11/17/2022

Our team trains regularly with the Portsmouth Fire Rescue & Emergency Services to clear any type of crash in 9 minutes or less, keeping the tunnels open for more than 99% of each day. During this National Crash Responder Safety Week, we recognize this valuable partnership and remind motorists to slow down and move over to accommodate emergency vehicles in service and keep workers safe.

Dangers of Turkey Fryers

Turkey fryers can be dangerous and cause a serious fire hazard. NFPA® and the US Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) demonstrate the risk in using turkey fryers to cook a turkey. Almost instantly, flames burst from a turkey fryer and caused the deck and roof of the structure to catch fire. NFPA strongly discourages the use of turkey fryers. Home cooking fires peak on Thanksgiving, and turkey fryers can lead to severe injuries and significant property damage

Fire Won't Wait, Plan Your Escape Fire Prevention Week 2022 Portsmouth Virginia

Its Fire Prevention Week 2022

The theme “Fire Won’t Wait. Plan Your Escape” promotes potentially life-saving messages that can mean the difference between life and death in a fire. Developing a home escape plan with all members of the household and practicing it regularly ensures that everyone knows what to do when the smoke alarm sounds and uses that time wisely.

Following are key messages behind this year’s theme:

Make sure your home escape plan meets the needs of all your family members, including those with sensory or physical disabilities.

Smoke alarms should be installed inside every sleeping room, outside each separate sleeping area, and on every level of your home. Smoke alarms should be interconnected so when one sounds, they all sound.

Know at least two ways out of every room, if possible. Make sure all doors and windows open easily.

Have an outside meeting place a safe distance from your home where everyone should meet.

Practice your home fire drill at least twice a year with everyone in the household, including guests. Practice at least once during the day and at night.

Fire Won't Wait, Plan Your Escape with Sparky for the 100th Anniversary of Fire Prevention Week 2022 October 9-15, 2022 in Portsmouth, Virginia.

At 12:36 Hours, Portsmouth Emergency Communications was alerted to a fire in the area of Portsmouth Blvd and Columbus St. Crews from Portsmouth and Navy Region Mid Atlantic arrived to find a two story, vacant home, heavily involved with fire.

Crews made an exterior attack of the flames, that were hindered by live power lines falling on the ground. Aerial and ground master streams were utilized to get the blaze under control. Crews are still actively working at this time and the scene is being Investigated by the Portsmouth Fire Marshals Office.

No Injuries have been noted by command to civilians or firefighters at this time.

As we approach the great Fourth of July Holiday weekend, we must remind all of our community to leave the Fireworks to the professionals. Fireworks are not only illegal in Virginia, but are extremely dangerous. Beyond the bodily harm possible, the area is extremely dry and fires can easily be started.

Please be safe out there, and have a great July 4th Weekend

Happy Fall at CSA 🍁🍂

Thanks to Portsmouth Fire Rescue & Emergency Services and
We join Portsmouth Fire Rescue & Emergency Services in spreading the word about Fire Prevention Week.
Fire outbreaks are devastating, especially when they threaten historic landmarks. This week on , Portsmouth, Virginia faced a major challenge when their beloved church went up in flames.

Portsmouth Fire Rescue & Emergency Services
Portsmouth Fire Rescue & Emergency Services crews were responding to a report concerning downed power lines when erupted at the scene and struck a and another man.
Four members of the Marine Incident Response Team spent today assisting The Port of Virginia with a large scale marine firefighting simulation on the James River. This simulation served as the final training event for the 29th Annual Marine Firefighting School. This week-long course is undoubtably the most comprehensive, hands-on marine fire training experience in the country and each year it attracts students from around the nation and the world.

AVFR joined several local fire and law enforcement agencies on the water to serve in both a support and exercise function. Once the students and their firefighting equipment were transported from the shore to the Cape Avinof (which had several simulated emergencies and fires aboard) the AVFR crew transitioned to a safety boat tasking - acting as an ALS medical support vessel and as a secondary rescue swimmer platform; ready to respond to any real-world situations that may occur during the training.

Participation in regional MIRT incidents and training events has tremendous value for our department and our community. Our firefighters are exposed to different situations, operating conditions, and geographic locations which help them become well-rounded vessel operators and crew members. These events allow us to hone our skills so that we are prepared to handle any type of marine incident occurring in and around Gloucester County. Marine incidents can very quickly turn into large-scale emergency events which require a unified response from many public safety agencies. By continuously operating alongside our regional partners, our MIRT members build strong relationships and interoperability with other public safety agencies. These relationships help us tremendously when requesting additional support for an incident in our community and allow us to handle emergencies quickly and professionally.

Finally, as a regional MIRT asset, AVFR has benefited from countless hours of tuition-free training provided by the Port of Virginia as well as financial assistance through federally-funded Port Security Grants. This funding allows us to replace obsolete equipment with minimal impact to our own operating budget. Which, as a volunteer agency, helps us to be fiscally responsible and re-allocate funds to other equipment needs to support our own land-based fire and rescue operations.
