Would it surprise you to learn that Fairfax County, Virginia Fire & Rescue Department is the only department trusted to protect over one million citizens that staffs its ladder trucks with less than 4 personnel?
This is the video produced by the Fairfax County Professional Fire Fighters & Paramedics - IAFF Local 2068 and distributed to the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors prior to finalization of the FY2008 budget. It details the need for increased staffing on Fairfax County ladder trucks directly from those who staff and command them every day.
Our hope is that the SAFER Grant application that has been blocked by the County Executive in the past, is allowed to proceed so this vital, safe staffing can be realized!
