Today we responded to Old Picket Road for a reported structure fire. Two of our units were in the area and were on the scene within minutes, finding heavy smoke showing from the roof of Bon Chon Chicken. Crews aggressively attacked the fire and had it under control within 15 minutes. We were assisted by multiple units from the county as well.

To protect each other, we all need to wear a face covering in indoor public settings, starting this Friday, May 29. This includes retail stores, barbershops, restaurants, government buildings, on public transportation, or anywhere where people can congregate in groups indoors.

I am also directing our Department of Labor and Industry to develop emergency regulations to reduce the risk of exposure to #COVID19 in our workplaces. These safety standards will apply to employers, and include use of PPE, sanitation, record keeping, and hazard communication.

We are making progress to contain the spread of #COVID19 in Virginia—let's keep working together to stay safe.

Although we enjoy suburban living, there are several neighborhoods in our response areas that are without fire hydrants. Yesterday, C-Shift, along with Fairfax County Fire and Rescue Department's 7th battalion conducted training for non-hydrant areas. This involved the use of tanker trucks and coordinated efforts of hundreds of feet of hose. We want to be prepared for any situation that comes our way! #firetraining #firedrill #cshift #cityoffairfaxfiredepartment #cffd #thatsalotofhoses

The new pandemic threat: People may die because they’re not calling 911

Community, it's time for a serious message! Please, if you are experiencing a medical emergency, do not hesitate to call 9-1-1. Every second counts!

There has been concern expressed nationally regarding individuals with critical medical emergencies, such as heart attacks or strokes, not contacting 9-1-1 for evaluation and transport to a hospital due to concerns related to the COVID-19 pandemic and efforts to avoid overwhelming our health care systems. We want to emphasize that our department and regional hospital facilities are prepared to treat any patient that may be having a life-threatening emergency and encourage our residents to contact 9-1-1 if they believe they are experiencing a heart attack or stroke.

We have taken measures to ensure our providers are able to evaluate patients and provide care in a safe manner, through provider temperature screenings, social distancing, and adequate supply of protective equipment. We are committed to continue providing high-quality, compassionate emergency medical service to our community throughout this pandemic.

Please do not hesitate contacting 9-1-1 if you have symptoms of a heart attack, stroke, or other critical medical emergency as the consequences may be significant.

#EverySecondCounts #Community #WeAreHereToHelp

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MRDhU0hYM_s&feature=youtu.be

If you or a loved one experiences heart attack or stroke symptoms, call 911 immediately. It's your best chance of surviving or saving a life.

Fire Station 33 Update! We are not sure the weather is going to cooperate, but if we get a little good weather, the crane should be gone by the end of the week. When the crane is gone, the masonry crew will return to the site. The steel crew still has a significant amount of work detailing the steel, but some of the steel rests on masonry. These were taken yesterday afternoon (4/28/2020).

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
Hi there. Does anybody have a point of contact (neighborhood team leads) for City of Fairfax CERT? I recently completed the basic training with Fairfax County (I work in the county and live in the city). Would like to connect with someone to see how I can contribute.
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/
