Each year the volunteers of the Falls Church Fire Department decorate the reserve pumper and escort Santa Claus through the streets of the Greater Falls Church area between 6:30 and 9:30 PM. The first five nights, December 15th through 19th, are dedicated to specific areas within the City of Falls Church proper, with the 20th, 21st, 22nd, and 23rd reserved for make-up nights and excursions into neighboring Arlington and Fairfax Counties. The weather conditions make our schedule subject to change. Santa's helpers will be handing out candy canes and fire safety literature during Santa's rounds.

FIRE PREVENTION WEEK 2015 - "HEAR THE BEEP WHEN YOU SLEEP"
Posted - Friday, September 4th, 2015

Keep your family safe with a working smoke alarm in every bedroom. Did you know that roughly half of home fire deaths result from fires reported between 11 p.m. and 7 a.m., when most people are asleep?

Smoke alarms save lives. If there is a fire in your home, smoke spreads fast and you need smoke alarms to give you time to get out. In fact, having a working smoke alarm cuts the chances of dying in a reported fire in half!

When it comes to smoke alarms, it’s about “location, location, location”.

The key message of this year's Fire Prevention Week campaign, October 4-10, is to install smoke alarms in every bedroom, outside each separate sleeping area, and on every level of your home, including the basement. Larger homes may need more alarms.

The FCVFD is excited to share this important information so everyone better understands the life-saving value of home smoke alarms. Visit NFPA's "Smoke Alarm Central" for more information.

FALL FIRE SAFETY TIPS
Posted - Friday, September 4th, 2015
a

As summer turns to fall, homes are switching from air conditioning to heat. In the home, heating (and cooking) equipment that burn fuel are potential sources of carbon monoxide.

Often called the silent killer, carbon monoxide is an invisible, odorless, colorless gas created when fuels (such as gasoline, wood, coal, natural gas, propane, oil, and methane) burn incompletely.

Follow some of these steps to protect your home. Click here for more information.
