On Tuesday April 11 at approximately 10:05 p.m. an SUV collided with a stationary road work truck in the left lane of I-64 WB at Mile 229. The truck had its crash barrier deployed, protecting the work site. The SUV driver was able to exit the vehicle with minor injuries, before the SUV was destroyed by fire. The SUV driver received treatment on scene and refused transport. The fire was extinguished and the scene turned over to VA State Police. There were no other injuries.
At approximately midnight Friday night/Saturday morning 8 April 2017, JCBVFD/JCCFD units were dispatched to a single car wreck on Eastbound I-64 between Exits 227 and 231. Upon arrival, a single vehicle was found in the trees on the right median. A single male occupant was found unconscious, trapped in the vehicle. Responders removed the driver’s side front door and extricated the patient. The patient was flown by LifeEvac 3 to VCU/MCV in Richmond. Units on Scene: E11, M11, SQ1, EMS2, and B311.
In 2012, we started this journey together. Five years later, after a lot of hard work, we have arrived at the time to dedicate this building and commission it for the job it was …intended; to serve the citizens of James City County.
The festivities will begin with a ceremony at noon to dedicate the building and will include our honor guard, special guests, bagpipes and the ceremonial hose uncoupling. Following the ceremony, members of JCBVFD, JCCFD and JCVRS, will be hosting an open house for our community and our neighbors (from 1pm-4pm). During this time, there will be a lot of things for our citizens (especially kids) to see, touch and experience in regards to fire department life as well as fire safety.
We are looking forward to this event and the opportunity to share this amazing facility with our community. We sincerely hope you will join us for this special day.
