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!

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.

Use this national pause to prepare – Have you picked a place in your home where someone can stay if they get sick with COVID-19? If a person you live with gets sick, they should stay separate from others. If possible, you should use an extra room or unused area and a separate bathroom. https://bit.ly/39Rl0Sf
