Last night our Chief, Tim Fleming, was presented with the inaugural Fire Chief's Career Achievement Award for 2019, as well as honored for his 19 year service and dedication to the Fairfax County Volunteer Fire Commission as it's Chairman. Did you know he's been the Chief at Franconia for 30 years?! Wouldn't have it any other way 😊

Day 3 of #emsweek! Our #ems providers are often first on scene for emergencies and public service calls alike. This means that we often share in your experience when you call us, no matter if its good or bad. During this stressful time, our EMS providers are encouraged to "make the call" to get the mental health support that they need!

Posted @withregram • @nkrakora1 How do you thank our first responders who are out there risking their own health to keep us safe? You make them Tuscan Lasagna Bolognese from scratch. 10 quarts of slow simmered Ragu Bolognese, 5 quarts of bechamel, 3 pounds of pasta, lord only knows how much parmigiana-reggiano and mozz, and lots of love and gratitude. The team at @franconiavfd Franconia Volunteer Fire Department Firehouse 5 were so surprised and happy. #KitchenQuarantine #CovidKindness #FirstResponderHeros.

Hi Team, Thanks for everything that you guys do! Here is a clip from earlier, I know your team got a call right before and couldn't make it, but thanks for coming by! https://www.facebook.com/4dfightingarts/videos/171935067413048/
I wanted to really thank the firefighters that did our Co-op group yesterday. They were really the sweetest and most patient guys ever. And made our experience awesome. All the kids loved meeting you all and Ariella hasn’t hush up about you all since we left lol. I have a ton of pics to send you all of you can contact me on Facebook I will send them all to you.
This volunteer firefighter was awesome with my 4 y/o and twin 3 y/o grandsons. I thought the masks would scare them but they all wanted to hug him. I think that this is a wonderful way to do preschool fire emergency education. Thank you!
Is there BINGO Saturday January 19 2019???
Thank you very much. From everyone in Franklin WV.
Thank you - for your professionalism and kindness when we needed you (a few times this summer). Knowing you're there, honestly, makes each day a little easier.
