Did you know that 10% of children live in poverty in Arlington? 

Arlington Firefighters don’t want the children in our communities to be left out in the cold. Team up with your local firefighters today, and give the gift of warmth to a child in need.

Your donation will help provide brand new, American-made coats to the children who need them most.

Beyond warmth, Arlington Firefighters believe new coats inspire higher self-esteem, keep children in school throughout the winter months and also free up tight family resources which can help create a better future.

Support the Arlington Firefighters as they support your community, and make a difference in a child’s life today!

President Obama visits Fire Station 5

February 3, 2012

On February 3, 2012, the ACFD had the distinct honor of welcoming President Barack Obama to Fire Station 5.  He was introduced by ACFD Lt. Jake Johnson.  You may view the speech here:  Unfortunately, I was not able to find video of Lt. Johnson's introduction, but everyone agreed that he did an outstanding job.  If anyone can find video, I will gladly post it to this site.

President Obama delivered a speech outlining his Veterans Jobs Corps bill, which he proposed during the state of the union address.  This bill would help veterans who are leaving military service, find jobs in the civilian sector.  As well, it would offer incentives to municipalities that desire to attract and hire military veterans.     


L2800 Members "Rebuilding Together"

On November 22, 2011 L2800 members Justin Tirelli, Matthew Orloski and Amanda Murphy partnered up with the charity "Rebuilding Together" to help build a wheelchair ramp for a disabled single mother of 2. Despite the rain and mud, our brothers and sister spent all day installing deck boards with other volunteers from NOVA. No air tools here, just hammers and nails. It was a great experience and we are looking forward to doing it again.

There will be more opportunities for this kind of work in the coming year so if anyone is interested please let Lt. Justin Tirelli know. Current and retired members are welcome!!!! For more information, contact Lt. Justin Tirelli at or 571-283-1116.

Ten years later, the memorials that were held at Ground Zero and across North America on September 11 help us always remember and never forget. Read More...
