    • The DVFD Volunteers, in conjunction with the Montgomery County Police Department (MCPD), and off duty Rockville City K9 Unit and his blood hound and community volunteers, responded in an urgent search for seven year old Raphael Leon who wandered off from his home.  The DVFD volunteers, using infrared equipment, searched the areas around Butterfield Way and the surrounding community.  The combined effort was ultimately successful when an undercover officer located Raphael in a field behind Damascus High School.  To learn more details, including Raphael's gratefulness to all the first responders, click here
