Thank YouSaturday March 22nd, 2014

To the couple that was at Glory Days in Manassas on Wednesday, We are very grateful for what you did. Someone paid for our entire crew's dinner as a thank you for our station helping them in the recent weeks. We do not know who you are but want to express our gratitude for your gesture. You have no idea how happy we are and how special it makes us feel when things like this happen.

A True HeroThursday January 30th, 2014

On 1/29/2014 young Tyler Doohan was laid to rest after saving 6 family members from a fire in their single wide trailer. After waking up family members and assisting them outside to safety, Tyler then went back inside in attempts to retrieve his disabled grandfather who could not get out on his own. Unfortunately this young hero succumbed to the heat and smoke.


In honor of Tyler Doohan, the members of the Yorkshire Volunteer Fire department made a par tag for Tyler to ride in spirit. Let his courage be with us at all times. Tyler would have made an amazing fireman. Rest in Peace young brother, you are a true hero.
