We held a Vehicle Rescue class on May 4 -6, 2018 here at The "50" House in which we had students attend from the following departments:

Ripley Fire Department, W. Virginia
Lynchburg Fire Department
Newport News Fire Department
Suffolk Fire Department
Navy Regional Mid-Atlantic Fire/Rescue
James City Fire Department
Va. Beach Fire Department
Prince George County, Maryland

This class was three days of intense Vehicle Rescue training with little time in the classroom and a lot of hands-on training. Students learned unconventional solutions to complex real world scenarios from several highly trained and experienced instructors that enjoyed sharing their knowledge and skills with the students. We thank all the organizations and departments that assisted with making this class successful!!
