Yesterdayโ€™s crew deserves some kudos on some big calls last shift. They also had a challenging EKG monitor malfunctioning. The crew was able to quickly troubleshoot and find that the patients dry skin was prohibiting the leads to capture data, which is abnormal considering itโ€™s usually the opposite that makes it hard to read. Great job on troubleshooting with station 405 and quickly figuring out what needed to be done to continue the assessment.

Good morning and Happy Fairfax County! Give something simple and free today โ€“ KINDNESS. In times of vitriol and division, it is easy to lose faith in people. Just one act of kindness today might be all it takes to restore oneโ€™s faith and hope in humanity.

Donating blood is one of the easiest ways to save lives. I was pleased to participate in the Greater Springfield Volunteer Fire Departmentโ€™s โ€œGive the Gift of Life Dayโ€ blood drive with Inova Blood Donor Services earlier today. Thereโ€™s still time to drop by before 6pm!
We stopped by the Greater Springfield Volunteer Fire Department to drop off some cookies and goodie bags today! Thank you for all that you do! ๐Ÿšจ๐Ÿš’
I have the perfect position for a retired fire officer working with Americas largest organization of retired Fire Officers. If you know someone that is retired and loved hanging out in the fire stations, working alongside their local firefighters and with victims of disaster I have great opportunities part-time flex hours to continue spreading safety messaging and helping victims of disaster at the worst time of their life. I have openings in the Boston, MA, Salem, OR, Charlotte Metro, Fairfax, VA, and Bakersfield CA.

Thanks for your service!
We're out in force today supporting the Parkway Classic! Best of luck to all the runners, and a huge thank you to our medical staff from Lorton, Greater Springfield Volunteer Fire Department , Vienna Volunteer Fire Department , and Burke Volunteer Fire and Rescue.
On this beautiful 4-22 day, we highlight Station (4)22, Springfield! Greater Springfield Volunteer Fire Department started in 1966 and the first fire house was a converted gas station! Current Station (4)22 is on Backlick Road.
Spring has Sprung! Now that the weather is getting a little more tolerable, its time to start bringing in the new residents! Kicking off the first week we have brought in 3 units that will now have a comfortable home out of the elements to be preserved.

1954 International American (Affectionately known as "Mildred") - Graciously donated by Greater Springfield Volunteer Fire Department, Springfield, VA.

1969 Pirsch 100' Midship Ladder (ex-Rouss Fire Company, Wi******er VA) - Saved from the scrappers torch by one of our founders. Special Thanks go to Dusty Bowers of Rouss Fire for reaching out to us with the information that made the save possible.

1977 Seagrave 100' TDA (ex-Richmond Fire Department, Richmond VA) - Saved by one of our founders from a life in the woods. Special Thanks go to Bedford Movers, Bedford Va. for letting us use their 50 ton recovery unit.

Remember folks all history is worth saving and keeping safe, not just the pretty rigs! It's our duty to bring them back to be proud.
