It was an honor to spend some time with the Clifton Lions Club and Fairfax Volunteer Fire Department recently! Jeff Greenfield and Bill Poole are co-chairs of the Annual Labor Day Car Show, co-sponsored by the Clifton Lions Club and City of Fairfax Government.

💓💓FEBRUARY IS HEART MONTH💓💓

Did you know that you do not need special training to use AEDs or provide hands-only CPR? The American Heart Association tells us that the two steps needed to provide hands-only CPR are:

❣️Dial 911
❣️Push hard and fast in the center of the chest #KeepTheBeat

Watch the instructional video here --->> https://youtu.be/M4ACYp75mjU

❣️Next: download the PulsePoint app! PulsePoint is a 911 connected app that can provide CPR needed notifications as well as locations of AEDs. Why? Because you can save a life!

US National Weather Service Baltimore/Washington forecasts possible inclement weather Friday & Saturday - but the details are still in flux.

Don't wait: as soon as you see brine lines on city roads, take that as your call to prepare for significant weather conditions. Check your essentials (medicine, pet food — oh, and people food) and pick up what you need NOW.

Stay abreast of weather conditions with your trusted source, such as US National Weather Service Baltimore/Washington — and check on your friends, family, and neighbors who may need help.

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/
