News release provided by the Belmont Ruritan Club

The Belmont Ruritan Club meeting held April 7th featured a visit and presentation by Captain Jeff Foster, “T.C. Waddy Station 9” VDF, Spotsylvania County.

Captain Foster, accompanied by five station members, were guests of the Club as a continuing thank you for their time and sharing their expertise in protecting our community. The presentation centered on reminding residents to “shut doors” in the event of a fire, check smoke alarms on a monthly basis and change batteries every 6 months, and to be aware of the open burning guidelines within the county especially during the high danger fire seasons as posted along our highways.

The Ruritan Club and the Belmont Club of Women provide support for the station and crew facilities through the sharing of funds raised by the annual Ham and Oyster Dinner.
