This past weekend Members of Adamsburg, High Park VFD, and Rescue 14 participated in an ATV operations class. The class consisted of a few hours of instruction in the classroom and then practical operations using a course set up in a field. Firefighters trained and tested on our quad and UTV in the 32 degree weather with mild snow conditions. We would like to thank the instructor for coming out on this cold day to help train us as well as High Park VFD for the use of their grounds. Attached are some pictures of the class.¬† (more…)

ACVFD adds additional ATV to expand services

Throughout the last year the ACVFD has sought out donations and other forms of funding to expand our off-road firefighting and rescue capability. On July 27th ACVFD took delivery of a Yamaha Kodiak 4WD Quad. This new ATV gives ACVFD an additional off road capable vehicle, quick scouting ability, and additional firefighting/rescue capabilities when working on our roughest terrain. ACVFD would like to thank Hillview Motorsports and the many entities who have donated to this project.

Hempfield Community Days

THANK YOU TO ALL THAT SUPPORTED ADAMSBURG VFD

Adamsburg VFD spent Saturday and Sunday at The Hempfield Community Days selling Fresh Cut French Fries, but that’s not all we did, we also assisted the Hempfield Emergency Management Agency¬† with our 6×4 J0hn Deere Trail-Gator for both Medical and Fire duties. Gator 10 Responded to a Electrical Motor Fire alongside North Hempfield VFD ST.65 which was able to be extinguished in a timely manner preventing further issues.

The ACVFD would like to thank everyone who supported us during the Community days!!!!
