Move Over, America

More than 150 U.S. law enforcement officers have been killed since 1999 after being struck by vehicles along America's highways, according to the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund. To lower that deadly toll, a new coalition of traffic safety and law enforcement groups is launching a nationwide public awareness campaign to protect emergency personnel along our nation's roadsides.

The EMS Strong campaign seeks to celebrate, unify and inspire the men and women of our nation’s emergency medical services. Created by the American College of Emergency Physicians (ACEP) in partnership with the National Association of Emergency Medical Technicians (NAEMT), EMS Strong brings together associations, EMS services, sponsors and national media to honor the dedication of EMS practitioners nationwide.

Weather is getting nicer and we all know that the weather starts to get nice, we all start working out in our yards.  In our area is it pretty common for folks to burn brush or even have a bon fire in the cool even hours.  We just wanted to send out a small reminder to call before you burn!

Burn Law

NOTIFICATION REQUIRED

Open burning may only take place after those wishing to burn have notified the Stafford County Communications Emergency Center at (540) 658-4440

Great news! C.E.R.T is partnering up with Brooke Fire and Rescue

Community Emergency Response Teams (CERT)

The Community Emergency Response Team  Program educates people about disaster preparedness for hazards that may impact their area and trains them in basic disaster response skills, such as fire safety, light search and rescue, team organization, and disaster medical operations. Using the training learned in the classroom and during exercises, CERT members can assist others in their neighborhood or workplace following an event when professional responders are not immediately available to help. CERT members also are encouraged to support emergency response agencies by taking a more active role in emergency preparedness projects in their community.
