Fire Stations Hold Open House
All Fairfax County fire stations will hold Fire Prevention Open Houses this Saturday, Oct. 12, from 10 a.m.-4 p.m., and the public is welcome. It’s part of national Fire Prevention Week and is aimed at preventing home fires—especially those that begin in the kitchen.
Firefighters and paramedics will have displays and activities emphasizing fire safety, and children will be able to explore fire engines and ambulances. Locally, stations participating include Station 21 on Route 50 in Fair Oaks, Station 16 in the Town of Clifton and Station 40 on West Ox Road in Fairfax.
Recycle During Electric Sunday
Residents may recycle old TVs, computers, peripheral electronic devices such as keyboards, speakers, printers and scanners, as well as household hazardous wastes including fluorescent light bulbs and tubes for free during Fairfax County’s “Electric Sunday” events. The next one is slated for Sunday, Oct. 20, from 10 a.m.-3 p.m., at the I-66 Transfer Station, 4618 West Ox Road in Fairfax. For more information, call 703-324-5052.
