April 22nd – April 27th, several of Ashburn’s members attended our profession’s biggest conference, Fire Department Instructors Conference (FDIC 2013). FDIC is a mix of Hand’s on Training (HOT classes) and Workshops that touch base on just about every aspect of the Fire Service. The members that attended will be bringing back what they’ve learned and sharing with the rest of the department if they haven’t started already. Ashburn Fire Rescue would like to thank all those members that took a week out of their lives to attend and help create a stronger culture of competence and training for our Department. Much fun was had by all.
The Department would also like to thank John Ayres, Juan Rodriguez, and Kyle Cox for participating and finishing the 9/11 Stair Climb. This event was created to never forget the horrible terrorist acts of 9/11 and the 343 members that were lost as a result. Thanks guys for keeping the brotherhood strong!!!
