Fire Station 24 (Woodlawn) opened in December 1970. This was Fairfax County's first fully funded station with all career personnel. The station is located just north of Ft. Belvoir Army Base along the US Route 1 corridor.

Historically, the father of our nation, George Washington, once owned the entire first due response area of Station 24. The three most visited historical sites in Fairfax County are located in our first due. They are Mt. Vernon Estates, Woodlawn Plantation, and G.W.'s Grist Mill.

With so much history why isn't the station called 'Mt Vernon'? Fire Station 9 was a volunteer house prior to the opening Station 24 and had already been named Mt. Vernon.

Hybrids: Overemphasized As A Hazard

Posted on August 13, 2007 at 5:44am 0 Comments

Knowing a few basic things about hybrids—the location and

construction of battery compartments, the color (orange) used to designate high voltage cables, and the

location of fuses that will isolate the electrical system—should be enough to

help first responders save lives and remain safe in the process. Removing the

ignition key and disconnecting a vehicle’s 12-volt battery are common

first-responder tasks in conventional vehicles… Continue
