Electric car training

Last night Mike and Gabe from Tesla Motors Owings Mills came down and did a great presentation about electric cars.  The focus was auto accidents and car fires in particular but also included a great background about electric vehicles.  Part of the time was a video and power point presentation and the second half was a hands on vehicle overview of two Teslas they brought up for us to go over.  RVFC hosted firefighters from E401, T404, E56, E18, T18, IV118, E19, E13, T13 and BC2 for the training.

Many thanks to Mike and Gabe for be willing to take an evening out of their time to do training for the North West side of Baltimore County.

Chestnut Ridge Fire

Reisterstown VFC receives BGE Emergency Response Grant

The Reisterstown Volunteer Fire Company was awarded an Emergency Response and Safety grant from BGE.  The grant will be used to purchase a Lucas CPR chest compression system (it will cover $8,000 of the $14,000 cost).  The Lucas will perform chest compressions on patients in cardiac arrest and will allow personnel that  would be performing chest compressions to perform other patient care tasks.  It will perform consistent compressions without fatigue and makes it easier for EMS personnel to move patients without any interruption in CPR.

The members and officers of the Reisterstown Volunteer Fire Company would like to thank BGE for awarding the grant to our community!
