    Lynchburg Fire Department Conducting Ladder Operations Training

    Now through Friday October 9, the Lynchburg Fire Department (LFD) is conducting ladder operations training at River Ridge Mall, 3405 Candlers Mountain Road. The training includes classroom and practical applications and specialized techniques such as the removal of victims, elevated hose streams, access control points for ladders and the use of specialized tools involved in elevated work.
    The training is being led by instructors from the LFD who are also instructors with the Commonwealth of Virginia in several fire and rescue disciplines and have completed several hundred hours of training in a variety of fire and rescue techniques.
    Because of the large equipment and pedestrians involved with this training, the public is encouraged to exercise caution while driving or walking in the area. 
    The Lynchburg Fire Department is grateful to the management of River Ridge Mall for allowing the use of their facilities for this important training.
