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.

Monthly Village Shuttle Service
10:00am - 2:30pm
Members are welcome to take advantage of the recently initiated service offered by the Village. Once a month you can take the Village Shuttle to visit DC-area museums and galleries.
Members meet on the designated day at 10am at the Beach 5 parking lot for the ride to the Mall to visit the museum of your choice. After your museum visit, meet at 2:00pm at the designated pick-up point for your return to Beach 5. Reservations are required to ensure we have enough vehicles. Check the Events Calendar for the next date and contact the Village Coordinator to reserve a seat.
