Simmons Gap House burned for Training.
Sat. Jan 8th 2011

A house on Simmons Gap Road was donated to EVFC for a very special one of a kind training session. After several months of preparing the house. The crews from Earlysville and Crozet got together to perform some realistic hands-on fire fighting training scenarios. Including search and rescue, fire suppression and pumping. The fire crews were broken into three man teams and were able to complete several evolutions per team before the days end. The final act of the day was to set the entire house ablaze as a controlled burn. After an hour or so, all that remained was a smoldering pile of chard wood confined to within the former foundation of the house. This was a training event that can only be replaced by the real thing. As rookie fire fighter Chris Josef said on TV (and yes he owes us ice cream) "You can't ever have too much training. So the more that you do this, the more comfortable everyone becomes, the more you know the crew that you're working with, the more comfortable you become with yourself." It took a considerable amount of work to pull this event off and we all learned a lot from this experience. EVFC would like to thank the Crozet Volunteer Fire Department (Station 5) for joining EVFC in making this event a great success.
