How Much Does a French Drain Cost?
Typical Range: $500 to $18,000 National Average: $5,000Modern building practices incorporate methods to direct rai nwater away from a home’s foundation. Unfortunately, some older houses may have been built without considering how water would drain. Or something may have changed over the years, like the collapse of a perimeter exterior drain tile that no longer carries water away so it’s backing up in the basement.Pooling water in or around the exterior of a crawl space or basement can lead to structural damage to a foundation. Water in a basement can damage possessions and lead to mold growth.
After the children were located, specialized resources to support confined-space rescues were requested and additional units from Kincora, Fairfax County and Dulles arrived to assist in freeing the trapped adolescents.
The LCFR Facebook statement continued: "Firefighters initially attempted to verbally guide and support the patients in removing themselves but were unsuccessful.
"After losing verbal contact with the trapped adolescents, LCFR personnel initiated a rapid confined space rescue by deploying a single rescuer with back-up rescuers in place to make contact with the two patients and physically removing them."
An LCFR spokesperson said in the statement that the two children were removed at 3:20 p.m. and 3:25 p.m. and both were evaluated at the scene by advance life support providers.
