Fire Department Chronicles
Famous Youtuber thinks Firefighters are overrated? Let's find out why.
Firehouse 28 is a career fire station in the Seven Corners area of Falls Church in Fairfax County, Va. Firehouse 28 houses an Engine & Medic There are 21 Fairfax County Career Firefighters assigned to Firehouse 28 divided amongst three shifts.
Each Shift has a Captain, an Apparatus Technician (Engine Driver), two EMS Technicians (Firefighter/Paramedics), and three Firefighters. All firefighters (including the Captains) not certified to the Paramedic level are EMT's. The "B" Shift Captain is the Station Commander. We staff Engine 428 (the 4 in front of the 28 is a jurisdictional designator because in Northern Virginia we have an automatic aid response agreement it is typical to have fire engines from multiple jurisdictions on any given box alarm) with the Captain, a driver, a firefighter/paramedic, and a firefighter. Medic 428 is staffed by two firefighters, one paramedic and one EMT. Firehouse 28 is in the Fourth Battalion of Fairfax County and borders the City of Falls Church and Arlington County. The firehouse sits on Buffalo Ridge, a historical site where a Union camp (Fort Buffalo) once stood during the Civil War - hence the buffalo as our station mascot on the logo.
Mission: Providing the best professional fire and emergency services to the community. Providing community outreach programs to enhance the safety and quality of life to our residence.

Famous Youtuber thinks Firefighters are overrated? Let's find out why.
It’s a shame this is no longer required to graduate the fire academy, it was a true confidence builder, team trust builder and an eliminator of those not willing to do whatever it takes.
👨🚒🧑🚒Firefighters training on the daily. Extremely grateful to live only a block away from a fire station where I can walk outside in the morning and see them perfect the countless amount of skills required for the job. Caught Truck 3 & Engine 3 today by my old elementary school (Redding🙌🏽) as I was walking by to the bank and took this quick video 🔥

National Firefighter Stand Down week. Move Over Slow Down. It is a Maryland State law to move over when any emergency vehicle is on the shoulder of the roadway.
Sixteen percent of drivers say they've struck or nearly struck an emergency vehicle or first responder on the side of the road. 40 first responders were killed on the side of the road in 2018, up 60% from 2017.
Engine 428 on the assist!
And today for C Shift there was a kitchen fire at Edy's Chicken & Steak in Baileys Crossroads. This is a popular restaurant and it will be closed for several months for repairs. 🔥🚒🚑

One of our members could use some help:
Brother Brad Giffin's son Tyler is a 23yr old who has been sick since Wednesday the 18th. It progressively worsened and he made a trip the the Med Express in Hagerstown near his home and was sent home after testing with ”supposedly” nothing found. The 19th he was even worse and was taken to Meritus Medical Center ER. He was not only admitted but placed in medically induced coma with severe pneumonia and sepsis. He was flown to Washington Hospital Center in DC and has been fighting for his life ever since. He has been on a vent since the 19th but since being at Washington Hospital Center has made improvements and is slowly getting better and better each day. Tyler and his family are those type of people that would give you their last dollar if you needed it. He is a third generation firefighter and volunteers his time to help complete strangers. Tyler will be off work without income for awhile and his insurance isn’t great. We are trying to raise funds to help Tyler with not only his everyday bills but the medical bills that are stacking up as I type this. Anything will help and please keep praying for Tyler.

Ronald Regan during his presidency dedicated the first Sunday in October as National Fallen Firefighter Day. As we lower our flags to half mast this morning it’s a stark reminder of those who have perished in the line of duty. This morning families will gather at the National Fallen Firefighters Memorial Service located in Emmitsburg, MD to honor their loved ones who perished in the line of duty during 2018. So today we honor our fallen brothers and sisters who have gone on before us. We pray for those families today as their loved one will be recognized for the duty and ultimate sacrifice they gave to serve their fellow man.

"Researchers from the Stanford University School of Medicine published a 10-year study which found a relationship between suicide in adults and sleep disruption. Of 420 participants, 20 individuals with chronic sleep disturbances committed suicide during the investigation. This is just a small window into the dark underworld of firefighting: sleep deprivation. "
