Special Operations

Spec ops
The Bristol Virginia Fire Department is proud to also be a special operations team. We currently have a technical rescue team (division 4) as well as a Haz-mat team. Each team receives money from the state to fund them. Many of our firefighters are cross trained to not only suppress fire but serve on our haz-mat team as well as our HTR (Heavy Technical Rescue) team. Each team has a team leader. They would be notified by the state if a team needs to be deployed. The team leaders are:

Captain Brian Sproles (Haz-Mat)
scott.sproles@bristolva.org

Captain Stacy Farley (HTR)

Below is a slide show of the training and activations BVFD has been a part of.
