Fairfax planners upbeat on new fire station for Tysons

The Fairfax County Planning Commission on March 20, 2019, approved plans by the county's Department of Public Works and Environmental Services to build a new fire station on Old Meadow Lane near Tysons.

In celebration of Fire Prevention Week (Oct. 6-12), all Fairfax County Fire and Rescue Department stations will host an open house on Oct. 12 from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m.

Local residents can stop by their local station that day to meet your firefighters, see fire trucks, join in the activities and learn about fire safety.

This year’s Fire Prevention Week theme is “Not Every Hero Wears a Cape. Plan and Practice Your Escape!”
