The Mechanicsville VFD, along with the Hollywood VFD will conduct a Live Fire Training Exercise tomorrow, Saturday December 16th. This training will be held on New Market Turner Road in the area of Delabrooke Road. Please use caution tomorrow driving in the area, and expect some slight delays periodically during the drill.

During this exercise, we are planning to burn a house at the owners request. Training will begin at approximately 7 am and will continue until approximately 12 pm. We want the public to be aware that this will be a controlled burn, that will produce moderate to heavy smoke for several miles.

Keep in mind, the debris from this building will continue to smolder for several days after the training is complete. However, MVFD, personnel will continue to check the area periodically during the smoldering phase to ensure that there are no hazards present. Also please be advised, there will be lane closures during this exercise.

If you have any questions please e-mail
