    Is this an emergency?

    • Fairfax County Emergency Information says :

      Thomas … obviously the information itself is not an emergency, however, since the Chaplain Corps works with Fairfax County residents during emergencies — and at other times as well — as a vital part of the county’s emergency response system through our emergency operations center, we felt this was important to share with our residents. This blog is not only used to share critical emergency information during times of crisis, but also is a resource for emergency-related news and emergency preparedness information at all other times of the year. Thanks for your comment and understanding.
