Arlington OKs Fire Engine Purchase

July 23, 2014 7:09 PM0 comments

The Arlington County Board has agreed to help fund a new fire engine, ambulance, ladder truck and three additional firefighters at the Falls Church Fire Station. The N. Washington Street station is located in Arlington but the land and building are owned by the City of Falls Church. The partnership contract between the two jurisdictions had not been updated since it was passed in 1989; the new agreement the board approved on Saturday would replace the former contract.

The Arlington County Fire Department staffs and operates the station alongside the Falls Church Volunteer Fire Department.
