Hamilton Rescue at the Fair

This past week, from July 21 through July 26, the annual Loudoun County Fair took place on the fair grounds off Dry Mill Road in Leesburg. We had a great turnout of volunteers to ensure that the EMS standbys were covered for the major events.

We had not only one ambulance there, but several times we staffed two and even three ambulances (with a little help from other companies’ members) plus the squad truck and the Gator. Our standby services were requested especially for the Demolition Derby and the ever-popular bull riding events.

Our volunteers enjoyed the great view from atop the squad truck.

The bull-riding events on Thursday and Saturday drew a big crowd. Despite some spectacular falls, none of the riders required medical care.

A cowboy, naturally on horseback, ensured that any bulls roaming the arena without a rider were safely escorted out.
