Saturday was a fantastic day in all Fairfax County Fire and Rescue fire stations as we held our annual Open House event. Many County residents stopped by their local fire station to meet the firefighters that serve them, get an up close look at the fire trucks and equipment, learn about fire safety, and just generally have a fun time!
As part of Open House, there is a competition among all the fire stations to win the “Best Open House” award. The award is given to a fire station in each of our seven battalions that best highlights this years Fire Prevention Week Theme along with being creative and making sure all visitors had a really good time.
Each Battalion Chief was responsible for judging the fire stations in their battalion. The competition was tough as each station did a fantastic job putting on a great open house for those we serve. However, one station in each battalion had to win and here are the stations that won:
Battalion One: Fire Station 39 – North Point
Battalion Two: Fire Station 42 – Wolf Trap
Battalion Three: Fire Station 15 – Chantilly
Battalion Four: Fire Station 18 – Jefferson
Battalion Five: Fire Station 22 – Springfield
Battalion Six: Fire Station 11 – Penn Daw
Battalion Seven: Fire Station 14 – Burke
Congratulations to all of our Open House Winners!
