Safety in Our Community

Welcome to Lake Barcroft Village!

At the recent Quarterly Members Meeting, guest speaker Fairfax County

Fire Chief Richard Bowers described the "Safety In Our Community initiative" (SIOC). With the overarching goal of "preventing the 911 call,"

local firefighters will come to your home to check your smoke alarms,

install new ones if your need them or provide batteries. Upon request,

they will also conduct a safety assessment, all free of charge.

 

Protect yourself this winter: if you use a space heater, be sure there is "space" around it so nothing combustible close by can catch fire. Also, kitchen fires are most prevalent during the holidays. Be safe. See this link for "How to Survive Another Holiday ....In the Kitchen." For more information on any of these

programs, contact Fairfax County Fire and Rescue Department at

703-246-3801, or email fire-rescue.PA-LSE@fairfaxcounty.gov.
