Hey ACFD, I’m missing the fire elf this year. Where’d that little fella go?
proud to have been an employee enjoyed every minute of it
Just a short out of thanks from this Arlington resident to all of you working on front lines during the Covid-19 crisis! The work you do, at such personal risk, is invaluable. Please know I'm mostly staying home, practicing good physical distance when I get out for just a little air & sunshine, and washing, washing, washing my hands!
Thomas Fleenor is a Paramedic and Volunteer Firefighter. He is doing his Individual Research Project for King University. It is a Study on Burnout in First Responders. Would you please take a few minutes and fill out the survey and share with any Firefighter, EMS and Police officers. Thank you for your participation. https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSfNZGC2WZ2RPsGhfNXg2I0Or48OYXCZhOchADDr2qsW_RDFCA/viewform?usp=sf_link

Hello! My name is Brandan and I work with Life Line Screening. We provide preventative health screenings for seniors to see if they are at risk for heart attack and stroke. We have an event coming up in the community soon, and I was wondering if you could possibly share the event to your page to help spread the word, and let the community members know we will be coming in the community? Every Like, Tag, or Share could save a life. Thank you. facebook.com/events/695286560916932/
The terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001 left 343 New York firefighters dead. Retired FDNY Lieutenant James J. O’Donnell survived that horrific day but attended over 150 memorial services for those that passed. Now, he shares the lives of 10 heroes who perished in the attacks, as told by their parents in “Sons of Valor, Parents of Faith.” “The crashing of two planes into the Twin Towers not only dismantled the buildings but hundreds of families as well. Mothers and fathers were left in the rubble of these attacks, searching for husbands, brothers and sons. Some of them never received answers nor recovered the bodies,” O’Donnell said. “The parents’ spiritual and emotional journeys can serve as an example of faith rising over despair.” “Sons of Valor, Parents of Faith” serves as a memorial to the lives and careers of 10 first responders who perished on 9/11. O’Donnell presents a unique and personal look at how the parents of these heroes were consoled by the FDNY Counseling Services Unit and the role that they played in helping them manage their grief in the aftermath of a national tragedy. In their own words, these faithful families share their sons' bravery and sacrifice so that it will never be forgotten. These parents not only recount the lives of their children but their own road to healing. O’Donnell takes a special look at the role faith played in the lives of those that perished and their families. “Sons of Valor, Parents of Faith is meant to help readers understand the stress, hardship and sometimes devastation that parents and families of first responders face,” O’Donnell said. “I also hope that readers realize the efforts and sacrifices of the FDNY and their families. Not only on that day but in the ensuing months and years.” Available at Amazon, Barnes and Noble and Westbow Press.
Former ACFD firefighter, Tim Keen, has been named Fire Chief of the Prince William County Department of Fire and Rescue.
