RVFC attended the fireworks tonight.
Thanks to all that came out to the Reisterstown Parade for the start of the Reisterstown Festival. It is great to see so many people out to see the community.
Tonight some newer members did basic extrication training on a car that was donated to the fire house. It is good for all members to have an understanding on how we do extrication even before the take the vehicle and machinery classes.
Thanks to all those that came to visit us at National Night Out in Chartley. Kids and adults were excited to get up on a fire truck and asked great questions about what we do!

E413 went down to the Baltimore County Fire Rescue Academy to support a firefighter at RVFC who is in the Firefighter 1 Class. Sunday was the first set of “burns” where the instructors set small fires in the burn building and the students advance a handline into the building and put the fire out.
Very early this morning E413 was dispatched on a working house fire in Butler’s area. Numerous engines were requested as it was a non-hydranted area. E413 arrived near the back of the line of engines and the crew went up to get an assignment from command.
