Station 5 and the Arlington County Fire Department has lost yet another good one to retirement. Steve Hughes has retired after 34+ years with Arlington County. He is distinguished as one of the best for his skills and abilities on the truck and managed to stay focused and committed to the mission of ACFD.

His final shift was a special one because he was assigned to the truck with his Brother and Nephew who are also ACFD firefighters and a quick visit from his mother.

We are incredibly grateful to “Pop Pop” Steve for his many years of dedicated service and wish him well as he transitions into a well-deserved retirement. Congratulations and stay safe!

FF Hughes also passed on the Senior Firefighter shield to FF Ray Gorham. FF Gorham is now the most senior firefighter on the department.

Thank You Oh Graze Away for the delicious snack boxes!

Thank You Oh Graze Away for the delicious snack boxes!

Oh Graze Away was happy to donate our snack boxes to the firefighters and EMTs at ACFD Station Five today. The station held a socially distanced dinner for the retirement of Steve Hughes, their most senior firefighter, who served 34 years with Arlington County. We hope you enjoy your retirement.

Thank you to all the first responders at Station 5 for their service!

Assigned to 5B is our department’s Senior Firefighter. Currently FF Pete Depuy has more time on the department than anyone else with 36 years. This week his last tour before he starts his next chapter in retirement. Today we were privileged to honor Pete with an unveiling of our training burn building street sign. The street has been renamed 141 Pete Depuy Drive. 141 is his badge number which to put it into perspective the current recruit class is up to badge number 1100. Pete spent over 7 years at our training academy sharing his wealth of knowledge as an instructor and will now forever be a part of the academy. Congratulations Pete!

The officers and crew of Station 5 - C Platoon would like to wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving and holiday season. Traditionally, crews working today could invite family and friends over so we could all reflect on what is most important in our lives and express our gratitude. But just like for many of you, this holiday looks very different than in years past and we are limiting our interactions for the day to only the members of our crew. Our safety is a priority and ensures that we can continue to provide the best care to everyone we serve.

We are very thankful for your all’s support throughout these difficult times. Your messages of gratitude and encouragement have been powerful affirmations that together, our community is strong and resilient. We appreciate everyone’s help in keeping themselves, our community, and the members of our fire department safe.

Have a safe and joyous Thanksgiving!

As part of #FirePreventionWeek each fire station was asked to put together a short video promoting fire safety in the kitchen. It is a friendly competition where Likes and shares are part of the scoring so please LIKE and SHARE the video!

It's Friday and we've got three great #FirePreventionWeek videos queued up to close out the week. The first is submitted by firefighters from Fire Station 5, who somehow managed to get some of The Arlington County Police Department's finest in on the act! Check it out- #cookingsafety #MittsNLids

Soon you will see a new engine running out of station 5.

On June 3, 2020, the Arlington County Fire Department took delivery of 2 new Pierce Manufacturing pumpers. These state of the art pieces of equipment come to us as bare-bones and will now be fitted with communications equipment and loaded with tools and hoses. Engine companies are the workhorses of the Fire Department and carry tools, water, medical equipment and of course firefighter/EMT's. Thanks to the Arlington, Virginia County Board for its continued support in making sure we have the best and safest equipment on the market. Thanks to all the folks at our equipment bureau for maintaining this complex machinery. Lastly, thanks to our residents of Arlington County for their incredible support, it's an honor serving you.

Please share! This was set up by one of our department member’s wife. Awesome idea to help out local business and Arlington first responders at the same time.
The goal is $2700, but however much her GoFundMe receives, will be divided up by each shift for meal delivery from local businesses. Please help out if you can or share. Thank you! #sharethelink

Important: Please take a moment to watch this #Covid_19 video. These are uneasy times, but know that not every patient we're caring for has the #coronavirus. One of the best ways you can help in this crisis is to be a good neighbor. Be kind to each other, now more than ever.
