The Bethesda-Chevy Chase Rescue Squad and its members were deeply saddened to learn of firefighter Trevor Brown, killed in the February 16 house explosion in Sterling, VA. Our sympathies go to family, friends @SterlingFire and @LoudounFire. Your sacrifices will not be forgotten.
Prior to midnight February 6, Rescue Squad 741 dispatched with units from 2nd Battalion to Inner Loop I-495 for report of overturned tractor trailer tanker. RS741 extricated trapped driver and A741B evaluated the occupant. MCFRS hazmat units pumped off fuel from punctured tanks.
