Henrico school buses with compliance issue to be fixed this summer


The 176 Henrico school buses that have been purchased since March 2011 will be fixed during the summer, Henrico Schools spokesman Andy Jenks told the Citizen. The bus manufacturers will retrofit the buses at no cost to the school division, he said.

The brake interlock device is required on all automatic transmission buses in Virginia that were purchased after March 2011, which is when the device was added to the state Board of Education's requirements for school buses. As many as 4,000 school buses in the state may be affected, according to the Virginia Department of Education.

Rep. Scott: Let independent panel draw districts


U.S. Rep. Robert C. “Bobby” Scott, a Democrat representing Virginia’s 3rd Congressional District, says the General Assembly should take some of the politics out of redistricting by having an independent commission redraw political boundaries.

When legislators themselves do redistricting, they have a personal interest in protecting their political future and their party, Scott said. That’s why he’d prefer that redistricting be done by a bipartisan or nonpartisan panel.

“It would still be partisan, but the difference is that it’s not personal,” Scott said in an interview after speaking to political science students and faculty Monday at Virginia Commonwealth University.

Fire officials practice ice rescue


Firefighters don't have the opportunity to train for every type of rescue operation they may eventually face, but Henrico firefighters did have a real-world training opportunity last weekend, thanks to frigid temperatures in the county.

The Division of Fire’s Specialty Rescue teams practiced ice rescues at a partially frozen lake in Three Lakes Park in northern Henrico Feb. 20. The Technical Rescue team, Hazardous Materials team and the Search and Rescue Dive team joined forces to practice skills needed to successfully pull victims out of a frozen lake.

One of the team members in a special ice suit was placed in the water, and team members practiced rescuing him using some of the specialized equipment. In one scenario, a Carlson board and ice spikes were used to make it out on the ice to the victim and ropes were used to pull both of them back.
