Event description

Description

On May 25th, 2008, four firefighters from the Loudoun County Department of Fire, Rescue, and Emergency Management became trapped on the second floor while performing interior operations on a house fire in Leesburg, Virginia after conditions rapidly deteriorated secondary to a flashover occurring on the first floor. Four firefighers were burned and required hospitalization for their injuries. A full investigative report was completed on this incident and Battalion Chief Micah Kiger will present incident operations, provide video footage of the incident with respective radio transmissions, and their departmental changes/recommendations, and the lessons learned from the company officer's first-hand perspective. This presentation will also cover how training yourself and crew the right way becomes second nature and how you can rely on training when it truly counts.
