Today members of GSVFD worked diligently to give our station a spring spruce up both inside and out. Weeds were banished, new mulch put down, lawn mowed and edged and many old electronics sent to recycling. We still have a little to do. Now is a great time to consider purchasing fund-raising bricks and become a part of GSVFD and our history - more information on purchasing a brick is available on our website (www.GSVFD.org)

Two worlds collide: In showcasing the different lives our #volunteers live outside of the station, we wanted to congratulate #EMT Natalia Durr who re-enlisted for 3 more years, received the Joint Service Commendation Medal and #Military Outstanding Volunteer Service Medal, and was meritoriously promoted to a First Class Petty Officer in the #US #NAVY! Join us in congratulating her and all our volunteers who put in so much time outside of their day jobs and time with their loved ones. Thank you C Shift for making it extra special.

Document Important Medical Information On Downloadable Form

Calling 911 can be scary. There are a lot of unknowns. Will you be able to communicate with paramedics or remember your medical history? Can’t remember all medications you are taking?

Filling out a File of Life form can provide peace of mind and be extremely helpful if you or a loved one has to go to the hospital. This form gives paramedics quick access to important medical information allowing for appropriate medical treatment. Information provided on the File of Life can also be helpful to hospital staff.

Home Fire Drills

Are you ready to act fast ? Make it a family plan 👍 #TwoWaysOut #EscapePlan #FireDrill #GetOutStayOut #GSVFD #FCFRD

Have a plan for young children who cannot get outside by themselves. You will need to wake babies and very young children and help them get out. In your plan, talk about who will help each child get out safely.

It is important to learn two ways out of every room in your home, in case one exit is blocked or dangerous to use.

Remember, if there is smoke, you need to get low and go to your exits. So practice getting low and moving to your exits.

Choose a safe meeting place a safe distance from your home. Children should know what to do when they hear a smoke alarm and there is no adult around. Help them practice going to the outside meeting place. Teach them to never go back inside a building that is on fire.

Have a home fire drill at least twice a year. So everyone can practice what to do if the smoke alarm sounds.

In a home fire, you may only have two minutes to get out. Home fire plans give you a plan of action. Make and practice your plan with your family to help eve...

Today Brigitte received VIP treatment from Fairfax County Fire and Rescue. This morning Brigitte had an appointment at the Medstar Orthopaedic Institute, which was on the 5th floor. As we were checking in the electricity went out. After waiting for 15 minutes, Christopher and I made the decision to carry Brigitte down the stairs in her wheelchair. As we were deciding on what would be the safest way to take her down the stairs, a fireman asked if he could be of any help, Of course, we were very grateful for his help. Two firefighters carried her down as the fireman in charge guided them down and kept the stairwell clear. I just wanted to thank Fairfax County Fire and Rescue and express my sincere gratitude for their help in safely taking Brigitte down the stairs. ❤️👩‍🚒
