Accidental Incident Involving Training Mannequin in Purcellville

Wednesday, March 25, 2015   Accidental Incident Involving Training Mannequin in Purcellville 
Early Wednesday morning, the Loudoun County Department of Fire, Rescue and Emergency Management (FREM) was notified that a Purcellville Volunteer Fire Company vehicle was observed traveling along a public roadway with a training mannequin attached to the rear of the vehicle. The Purcellville Volunteer Fire Company and the Loudoun County Department of Fire, Rescue and Emergency Management regret that the driver was unaware that the mannequin was attached to the vehicle and apologize to anyone who witnessed the incident. The Company and Loudoun County Department of Fire, Rescue and Emergency Management are working together to ensure errors like this do not occur again.

The incident occurred following a drill earlier this week during which the mannequin, dressed in firefighter gear, was used for training. This morning, a vehicle maintenance contractor arrived to transport the vehicle to a facility in Chantilly. The driver was unaware that the training mannequin had not been removed from the vehicle. A motorist stopped the driver in the area of Battlefield Parkway and Route 7 and notified him of the presence of the training mannequin and it was immediately removed.

Inquiries about the incident may be directed to Brad Quin, President of the Purcellville Volunteer Fire Company at
