Gloucester Volunteer Fire and Rescue Squad, Inc. would like to congratulate our convention team on a job well done this past weekend. On August 1st, members on the convention team competed in The Virginia State Firefighters Association 2015 Expo firefighter’s competition in Hampton. Teams from all around the state of Virginia competed in various fire service related events that involved pulling hose, dressing drills, and throwing and climbing ladders.

The GVFRS convention team brought home four trophies:

  • 1st place in the 6 Man Ladder event,
  • 1st place in the Motor Chemical event,
  • 2nd place in the 4 Man Ladder event,
  • and 2nd place overall.

This was the first year participating on the team for over half of the team members. These gentleman have been working hard practicing over the last several months.

Thanks to all those who have supported our team members, helped with practices, and came to cheer the team on Saturday.

Congratulations again guys!
