If you call Fire Station 37, Kingstowne, on any given day and ask for the officer in charge, you will notice one thing they all have in common. All of them are women. For the first time in the history of Fairfax County Fire and Rescue Department, three women fill the top leadership roles of a fire station. In an industry that is striving to acquire more diversity, especially in leadership roles, it signals progress.

Stat safe!!!

The Fourth of July would not be the same without those breathtaking fireworks. However, tragedy can strike within seconds when fireworks are not properly and safely used. Thousands of people are injured each year in the United States due to fireworks. Consider the following safety tips when using permissible fireworks: https://ffxfirerescue.wordpress.com/2021/06/30/fireworks-safety-5/

If you would like to dispose of any illegal or unwanted consumer fireworks in your possession without penalty, please contact the County Fire Marshal at 703-246-4849 , TTY 711.

Hey guys, it's a #HotOne out there... Make sure you stay #hydrated and #cool.

Here are some tips for you:

- Limit your outdoor activity, especially midday when the sun is hottest.
- Wear and reapply sunscreen as indicated on the package.
- Pace your activity. Start activities slow and pick up the pace gradually.
- Drink more water than usual and don’t wait until you’re thirsty to drink more. Muscle cramping may be an early sign of heat-related illness.
- Wear loose, lightweight, light-colored clothing.

And while we're at it, here are some tips on keeping your house cool as well! https://info.iwantcomfortnow.com/blog/8-tips-to-cool-your-home-better-during-a-heat-wave

Important read!

The temporary shutdown of the Colonial Pipeline due to a cyberattack has caused many people to purchase extra gasoline - dispensing it into portable containers to store a for later use. It’s important to remember that gas is highly flammable and a significant fire hazard can occur if the gas is not dispensed or stored properly.

Please understand that purchasing more gasoline than you need, or will use, in the coming days may very well prolong disruptions. Please fill-up responsibly.

If you must purchase extra gasoline, the Fairfax County Fire and Rescue Department urges all residents to follow the below safety guidance from the Virginia Department of Fire Programs as it relates to dispensing flammable fuels into a portable container and storing properly:

Virginia Task Force-1 Awarded USAR Cooperative Agreement from USAID

Fire Chief John Butler is pleased to announce that the Fairfax County Fire and Rescue Department sponsored Urban Search and Rescue Program, Virginia Task Force 1 Urban Search and Rescue, will continue providing international urban search and rescue services as part of the United States Agency for International Development’s (USAID) Bureau for Humanitarian Assistance (BHA) disaster response efforts.

The Program completed an extensive competitive process to obtain a cooperative agreement with BHA that goes into effect December 1, 2020 and will last for five years. This continues a formal partnership that has been in place since 1991 and allows the department, and its personnel, to provide emergency response and technical assistance around the world. This partnership is run alongside the urban search and rescue team’s work with the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) as a domestic disaster response team.

“I am extremely proud of the men and women of our urban search and rescue team,” said Fire Chief Butler. “This accomplishment was made possible by their hard work, dedication, and innovation. We are honored to continue our partnership with USAID and provide urban search and rescue services around the world.”

In recent years, Fairfax County Fire and Rescue Department’s urban search and rescue team has deployed numerous times in support of USAID’s humanitarian response efforts, including to the Bahamas in 2019 for Hurricane Dorian and Nepal in 2015 for a magnitude 7.8 earthquake.

Boy scout creates autism response kits for Fairfax Fire Department

Local boy scout, Adrian Allred, created autism response kits for all 42 medic units in The Fairfax County Fire & Rescue Department. These kits can be used to bridge language barriers and create as comfortable an environment for children with autism and anxiety as first responders provide care. Fire Station 21, is proud to be the first to utilize this kit, with Medic 421 using it to help calm a non-verbal child. Kits are on their way to volunteer units and we can't wait. These kits could prove invaluable. Good job Adrian!
