May 4th was chosen as #InternationalFirefightersDay because it is the feast day of the patron saint of firefighters, Saint Florian.

#SaintFlorian was an officer in the Roman army who died protecting his faith. In the military, he was responsible for organizing and leading firefighting brigades. Florian organized and trained an elite group of soldiers whose sole duty was to fight fires.

During the Diocletianic Persecution of Christians, reports reached Rome that St. Florian was not enforcing the proscriptions against Christians in his territory. Aquilinus was sent to investigate these reports. When Aquilinus ordered Florian to offer sacrifice to the Roman gods in accordance with Roman religion, Florian refused.

Florian was sentenced to death by fire. Standing on the funeral pyre, Florian is reputed to have challenged the Roman soldiers to light the fire, saying "If you wish to know that I am not afraid of your torture, light the fire, and in the name of the Lord I will climb to heaven on the flames." Apprehensive of his words, the soldiers did not burn Florian, but executed him by drowning in the Enns River, which flows into the Danube.

Spared of death by fire and executed in the very waters that extinguish flames, St. Florian has been named the patron saint of firefighters.

May Saint Florian watch over all of our brothers and sisters. #StaySafe #BrothersAndSisters #WatchOverOurFirefighters

Below we have an update for #FireStation33 construction, but first we wanted to share with you this #VirtualWalkthrough of the station under construction!

You can check that out here ----->> https://players.cupix.com/p/pmmSUoub

(Special thanks to the George Mason University Police Department and the GMU Forensic Science Program for making the virtual walk-through happen).

Now to the construction update: Several significant milestones have been achieved over the last few weeks. The apparatus bay floor has been poured and installation of the bay doors is in progress. The third-floor drywall has been completed and primed and ceiling grid is being installed. The majority of the exterior glazing is now installed and the building envelope will soon be complete. Site work to install storm water infrastructure, sanitary infrastructure and a retaining wall is underway behind the building. This work could not be started until the masonry contractor completed their work.

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.
