VBFD PIO visits Santiago, Chile, takes tour, meets a volunteer

April 19, 2018


I had the pleasure recently of visiting the 14th British Fire and Rescue Company in Santiago, Chile, while on a brief vacation there. I was warmly welcomed by Antonio Figueroa Aninat, a volunteer officer with Company 14, who graciously gave me a tour of their station and patiently answered all of my questions about how the fire service operates in Santiago.


I took some pictures so that I might be able to share my experience with the Virginia Beach community.


You will see from the photos that the facility there is very nice and well-equipped.


Antonio also wanted me to pass along an invitation to all of our members to visit him if you are ever in Santiago.


I hope he will visit Virginia Beach one day and I assured him he would always be welcome to visit any of our companies here.
