Congratulations to Firefighter/Medic II Dewey (pictured left) on her ALS release! Pictured as well are Lieutenant Derr and Firefighter/Medic II Athenry who served as her preceptors. This process is always challenging, and was made even more challenging due to all three providers being off extended periods of time recovering from COVID. #fxbg #fire #paramedic

Forecasters say this weather will be more severe than last weekend. Please plan to limit your travel to emergencies only and make sure you have supplies in case of power outages.

With significant ice accumulation predicted for the next few days, there is the possibility of power outages. Please report any outages to Dominion at 1-866-366-4357. In addition, be careful with alternative heat sources, as they can create carbon monoxide which is deadly. Please stay off the roads if possible. If you must travel, make sure you have emergency supplies in your vehicle, such as flashlights, water, blankets, and food. As always, emergency crews may be delayed. #fxbg #fire #emergencypreparedness #stayhomestaysafe

As with COVID, the best way to ensure you don’t see us on this snowy day, is to stay home if you are able. Surfaces are already covered and roads are slick. We hope you are able to enjoy a movie, have a pajama day, make snow ice cream, or take a nap. #fxbg #fire #winterweather

With inclement weather in the forecast for Sunday, this is once again a good time to make sure you are prepared in the event that you are unable to leave your house. Make sure you have enough food for you, any other household members, and pets. Make sure you have enough water, medications, and any other supplies you may need. Please stay off the roads if possible. As always, apparatus may be delayed as they are subject to the same laws of physics as passenger vehicles. Stay safe! #fxbg #fire #winterweather

For city residents, there will be a special pick up of Christmas trees next week, January 4 through 8. Just remove all lights and decorations and leave your tree at the curb before Monday morning.

Our personnel wish you and your families a happy, safe, and healthy Christmas. Wash your hands, limit your exposure to other people, stay home if sick, don’t fry a frozen turkey, turn your Christmas tree off if you aren’t at home, walk like a penguin because sidewalks may be slick, and use caution on roadways. In addition, the Rappahannock River is now expected to crest at 17.4 feet at 1 p.m. today, so please don’t try out any water related gifts until it subsides. #fxbg #fire #ems #merrychristmas #2020

Rappahannock River Flooding alert:
The National Weather Service has issued a crest forecast of 13.4 ft at Fredericksburg for approx 7 p.m. on Christmas Day.

How can you safely use a space heater this winter? Here’s a few simple pointers.

• The heater belongs on the floor
• Keep it away from water. Obvious but….
• Avoid flammable objects too, like curtains or bedcoverings
• Never leave the heater unattended
• It wants to be in a wall outlet, not a power strip

With the potential of winter weather arriving Wednesday, this is a good time to check your emergency kit to make sure you have everything you need to stay in. Please limit travel during winter weather to allow the plows and sand trucks to clear the roads. Less cars also equals less accidents, keeping apparatus available for other emergencies. Response times are delayed in winter weather, as apparatus are subject to the same laws of physics as personal vehicles. Please be safe. #fxbg #fire #emergencypreparedness #winterweather
