April 22 - 27, 2018 - 25, 2017 Fairfax County USAR Full Scale Exercise (Lorton Training Facility)
We will be hosting a full scale exercise in conjunction with our sister team from Los Angeles , and will be in need of about 10 volunteers per operational shift for this exercise as well. Details will be forthcoming on this, but It will be a large undertaking and I wanted to put it on your radar now.

Stop the Bleed – January 15th, 6:00 – 7:30 pm. Open to anyone.
My name is Colleen Brooks and I work in Trauma Services at Inova Fairfax Medical Campus. I want to let you know about two very important and timely events. Inova Fairfax Hospital’s Trauma Services team has joined the national Stop the Bleed campaign, which aims to make bleeding control as common as CPR and AED use. We currently have one workshop scheduled to teach “immediate responders” – members of the general public – how to stop life-threatening blood loss using three simple steps. These free workshops are designed to help non-clinical individuals become comfortable assisting victims of natural and manmade disasters, as well as everyday accidents, by appropriately applying pressure, packing wounds, and applying tourniquets.

This takes place at the INVOA Fairfax Medical Campus in the Physician’s Conference Center
