A perfect example to have working smoke detectors in your homes!! Check them and change the batteries!!

Watch this stunning video of a home fire in a suburb of Denver, Colorado. It is a drastic illustration of the need for smoke alarms (early warning), fire sprinklers (early suppression), and an escape plan - especially where high-risk residents (young children, elderly, disabled) are present. "We went from celebrating a birthday to chaos in minutes. Grateful everyone survived," stated one of the occupants.

Fairfax County Fire and Rescue Graduates Recruit Class Early to Assist with COVID-19 Pandemic

As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Fairfax County Fire and Rescue Department (FCFRD) accelerated the timeline of its current recruit class to augment the department’s pandemic response.

On May 8, 2020, Fairfax County Fire and Rescue Department Chief John Butler presided over a swearing in ceremony of the 53 new firefighters and paramedics at the department’s Fire and Rescue Training Academy. During the brief ceremony, attended by select FCFRD command staff and academy instructors, Recruit Class 146 pledged their duty to Fairfax County as the newest probationary firefighters. They will begin working at their first fire stations on Saturday, May 9, 2020.

This historic early graduation comes as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. The proactive decision to accelerate the timeline came as the department prepared and planned for the continuity of services we provide to our communities. Each recruit enters the field as a fully certified firefighter and paramedic. At a later date, the department will have a formal graduation ceremony to celebrate their incredible achievements with family and friends.

“I am extremely proud of the 53 recruits who completed their training in the midst of extraordinary circumstances. I am excited to have them join forces with our brave firefighters and paramedics already working on the front lines to protect the lives of those we serve,” said FCFRD Chief Butler.

Purcellville Single Family Home Fire Displaces a Family of Two

Purcellville, VA. - Loudoun County Fire Officials determine cause and offer safety tips after Friday night’s house fire displaces a family of two.

At approximately 10:00 p.m. on Friday, March 6th, 2020, Loudoun County’s Emergency Communications Center received a 9-1-1 call from a resident stating that their home was on fire in the 200 block of East G Street in Purcellville. Fire and rescue units from Purcellville, Round Hill, Hamilton, Philomont, Leesburg, Ashburn and Loudoun Heights were dispatched to the incident along with accompanying Command Officers. Firefighters arrived on the scene to find active fire in the rear of the home with possible fire extension to the inside. The homeowners were located safely outside.

Firefighters aggressively attacked the fire in the rear as additional crews checked for any extension to the interior of the home. Crews discovered fire had begun to spread into the walls and floor joist areas and worked quickly to extinguish the remainder of fire.

One resident was evaluated by paramedics on the scene and one firefighter was transported to a local area hospital for evaluation. Two residents were displaced from their home and are being assisted by the American Red Cross. The Loudoun County Fire Marshal’s Office determined the cause of the fire was accidental due to hot ashes from the fireplace igniting nearby combustibles in and around the fireplace. The damages are estimated at $200,000.

It is important to note that the occupants were alerted to the fire by multiple smoke alarms which activated in the home. The smoke alarms allowed the family precious moments to remove themselves from danger and call for help, avoiding potential injury and more extensive damages.

Each year Loudoun firefighters respond to devastating fires caused by improper disposal of hot coals or ashes from fireplaces, wood stoves, pellet stoves, grills, fire pits and even cigarette butts. Residents must use caution when disposing of fireplace ashes or any hot materials in or around your home. It is critical to soak ashes thoroughly with water, in a metal container with a lid, and allow them to cool for 48 hours. The metal container should be kept outside, a safe distance away from your home or any other structure By taking these additional measures, you can help ensure these items are appropriately extinguished and do not pose a fire hazard to you or your neighbors.
