Fairfax County Asks Residents to Follow State’s Stay at Home Order
-------------------------------
Fairfax County strongly urges residents to follow the stay-at-home order issued by Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam today.

This order is critical to help slow the spread of the coronavirus as cases continue to climb across the state with 225 confirmed cases in the Fairfax County Health District. Social distancing is the most effective method to limit the disease’s transmission.

The governor’s action, which currently remains in effect until June 10, means that residents should stay in homes with only a few exceptions for essential activities, including:

✅ Getting groceries or medicines.
✅ Caring for a sick family member or friend.
✅ Getting medical care for yourself.
✅ Going outside for exercise for yourself or pets (although not in groups larger than 10 people).
✅ Getting necessary social or government services.
✅ Traveling to and from work or place of worship.

Do not go out unless you need to go out.

Some flood hazard terms you should learn and recognize:

#Flood: An overflow of water onto normally dry land. The inundation of a normally dry area caused by rising water in an existing waterway, such as a river, stream, or drainage ditch. Flooding is a longer term event than flash flooding: it may last days or weeks.

#FlashFlood: A flood caused by heavy or excessive rainfall in a short period of time, generally less than 6 hours. Flash floods are usually characterized by raging torrents after heavy rains that rip through river beds, urban streets, or mountain canyons sweeping everything before them. They can occur within minutes or a few hours of excessive rainfall. They can also occur even if no rain has fallen, for instance after a levee or dam has failed, or after a sudden release of water by a debris or ice jam.

It is a pleasure to announce that today the City of Fairfax Fire Department has received Accredited Agency status with the the Center for Public Safety Excellence (CPSE). This prestigious recognition was given for meeting the criteria of the Commission on Fire Accreditation International’s (CFAI) voluntary self-assessment and accreditation program.

There are currently 270 accredited fire departments in the United States, Canada, and U.S. Department of Defense installations across the world. This represents 11% of the U.S. population and 17% of the Canadian population being protected by an accredited fire department. We are also joining 87 fire departments across the U.S. that hold both the ISO Class 1 Rating and Accredited Agency status.

This culminates over three years of work by our command staff, program managers, and personnel to document and assess our risks in the community, response performance, develop a comprehensive five year strategic plan, and demonstrate compliance in ten major categories with 252 performance indicators. We are very proud of the work that our members completed working towards this continuous improvement model and the great service we provide to the community daily.

First responders have enough to worry when they are on the front lines protecting all of us. But many are scared that they don’t have proper plans in place to protect themselves or their families if they should get sick. The Legacy Elder Law Center can solve that problem. Effective immediately, and for a limited time, the Center is cutting the cost of its “Basics” and “Fundamentals” planning packages for these men and women who are keeping us safe. They can get the planning they need done right and fast, working with our experienced, professional team in a safe, virtual environment without any face to face to meetings. Please feel free to share this offer to your colleagues and friends to help them in these uncertain times. Call us at 703-988-7975 or copy our email address [email protected] to get your planning done now. Please visit and “like” our page at https://www.facebook.com/legacyelderlaw

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/2352625138394843/
