Did you know that most fires in the home begin in the kitchen? If a fire should begin in your oven, immediately turn the oven off. Leave the door closed to starve the fire of oxygen, and only open the oven once it's cool. If the fire doesn't go out, evacuate and call 911.

Were you checking the wires when you strung up your lights this year? If you see any section that looks frayed or pinched, you should throw it away. We know it's a pain, but losing your home to an electrical fire is a much bigger one.

Our Vision: The Arcola Volunteer Fire Department will respond to emergency calls with fully-staffed apparatus at all times, trained, equipped, and ready to mitigate any incident. Our response will be prompt and safe, our service delivery will be professional and compassionate, and our leadership – both on scene and off – will be what others seek to imitate. We will work together with the Loudoun County Fire & Rescue Department and neighboring volunteer companies to provide efficient and effective fire and emergency medical services to all of our surrounding communities. We will work with neighborhood and business leaders to provide relevant and timely fire and life safety education, focusing on prevention as the best way to protect our community. We will continually strive towards technical excellence by training to perfect our craft on a constant basis. We will keep our apparatus and equipment clean and serviceable to reflect the pride we have in our company and the professionalism we seek to exemplify. Company 9 will be regarded as capable, reliable, and professional. Our Core Values: Respect: for our community, for our customers, for each other. Integrity: in everything we do, always. Character: of the highest moral and ethical quality. Professionalism: at all times. Commitment: to our craft, to our duty, to our community. Safety: emphasized during all activities. Unity: with all of our fellow fire & rescue organizations.

Anyone with a Loudoun County Fire Department badge can enter the OneLoudoun festival of lights pavilion (or whatever it is called) on Tuesday nights. I went there last night to take some pictures. Otherwise it cost $29 to get in.
