Firefighters stand out in regional competition

SoVaNow.com / September 25, 2013
Mecklenburg County firefighters had a banner day Saturday competing in the Southside Virginia Association of Firefighters regional meet, held this year in Clover during the community’s annual fall festival.

The annual competition will move to South Hill next spring, according to Bert Martin, outgoing association president and Clover fire chief.

The South Hill Fire Department took the top honor of the day — the G. Tanner Memorial Trophy— in competition with other area fire crews. South Hill placed first in the one-man hose competition and the two-man RIT, as well as in the four-man ladder competition and the forceable entry contest.

South Hill placed second in the bucket brigade and in the six-man hose contest, and third place in the four-man hose competition.

The Boydton Fire Department won first place honors in the four-man and six-man hose contests and the bucket brigade, while finishing second in the two-man RIT and the four-man ladder contests. Boydton also finished third in the one-man hose and the forceable entry competition.

The team dedicated their wins to one of their members who died earlier in the week after helping out with training for the competition.

Chase City firefighters took second place in the one-man hose and third place in the two-man RIT and the four-man ladder contest.

The Kenbridge Volunteer Fire Department took two second place finishes — in the foreceable entry and the four-man hose competition — and third place in the bucket brigade and the six-man hose contests.
