Honoring Veterans Day at the November 2014 NRCA Meeting
Agenda:Alexandria presents "Playing With Fire" - Monday, Nov. 24

As the city makes plans to move and consolidate fire houses, are we sacrificing safety to save $$$? This month, Agenda will examine the status of our first responders in the Alexandria Fire Department. In a growing city, the need for emergency response increases along with the population. The Department responds to all calls in Alexandria and sometimes at National Airport and in Arlington and Fairfax Counties. To fulfill this mission, the AFD staffs nine firehouses with a tenth (on west Eisenhower Ave.) about to go on line. There are also plans to build an eleventh station in the future (at Beauregard St. and Sanger Ave. in the West End). Manpower and equipment must be allocated to assure the rapid response that is their mission. In 2013, citizen groups acted to prevent equipment from being moved out of the north Old Town area and there are concerns that as the budget season approaches, additional funding may need to be allocated for these needed services.

This Friday, 11/21, is the deadline to reserve for the Monday, November 24, Agenda:Alexandria program “Playing with Fire” with Interim Alexandria Assistant Fire Chief Dwayne Bonnette, Patrick Evans, President of the Black Fire Service Professionals of Alexandria, and Tom Soapes, President of NOTICe. 

Dinner catered by Bittersweet Catering at 6:45 [with reservations by deadline: members $32 (nonmembers $37); after deadline: members $37 (nonmembers $42)]. 

Program only: 7:15 - free to members; $5 for nonmembers. 

The Hermitage
5000 Fairbanks Avenue. 

Reservations required.  Call Sherry Brown at 703-548-7089 or email agendaalexandria @ aol.com.
