Last night we were so excited to help Kaylee's mom surprise her daughter for Christmas. Although she's only 10, she has fallen in love with Jeeps. When it came time to replace their family car, Kaylee's mom Stephanie decided to get a Jeep. She wanted to surprise her daughter in a special way and we were so excited to see Kaylee get her first Jeep right on the ramp of #FireStation3. Congratulations Stephanie and Kaylee on your new Jeep and may you have many fun adventures on the horizon! #JeepGirl #CFFD City of Fairfax Government #ashift #Congratulations #christmas2020

#WellnessCheck Time: Today marks 220 days since our first confirmed #Covid19 case in the #CityofFairfax. During this time many had to adjust their lives greatly, including remote working, job loss, remote learning, child care issues, healthcare issues, and shortages along with #stress, #anxiety, #fear, #lonliness, and a vast array of additional emotions.

Take some time today to do a wellness check on your neighbors, friends, family, co-workers, and loved ones. And while you're at it, do a wellness check on yourself. #SelfCare is very important and remember #itsokaynottobeokay. Take care of yourselves and each other. #weareallinthistogether You can always call: #800273TALK

What is a “dry hydrant?”

Most of the time when water is needed to fight a fire, we are able to use tank water from our engines. Since that water depletes quickly, firefighters depend on hydrants to maintain the supply of water.

In some cases, especially in rural areas, hydrants are scarce. In these cases, firefighters can source water from ponds, pools or other devices called “dry hydrants.”

A dry hydrant is pipe which goes underground, but unlike a traditional hydrant, it doesn’t connect to a water main. Instead, it travels below the freeze line into a body of water such as a pond or creek.

In these pictures, city firefighters are drafting water from both the creek and dry hydrant and supplying it to Fairfax County Fire and Rescue Department Engine 432 (Fairfax Station).

Your #cityoffairfax firefighters are constantly training and refining our skills. No matter the situation, we are here when you need us.

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/
