Vehicle Accident for Tuesday Crew Highlights Serious Safety Issue

A little after 9pm last night Engine 618 and Medic 625 were alerted for a vehicle accident on Algonkian Parkway in the vicinity of Potomac Falls HS. The engine crew evaluated the vehicles involved for any safety issues, and assisted medics as they evaluated potential patients involved.

However, even though there were two fire vehicles, an ambulance, and two LCSO vehicles with emergency lights activated, as well as numerous traffic cones, a number of vehicles traveled through the accident scene AT FULL SPEED, never slowing down. This is dangerous to first responders and illegal. Please SLOW DOWN and proceed at a cautious rate of speed as you pass through or by an accident scene, and watch for direction from first responders. Above all, please help keep us safe so we can keep providing you lifesaving services. Please share this message!

This happens in the 9 due as well, a lot. There is a lot working against us in public safety. Be safe out there.

Yikes!! This is disturbing.

Some drivers don't even slow down at school flashing lights

I was crawling up to the accident looking for someone directing traffic, but didn't see anyone. I got as far over on the road as I could and continued to crawl. So many people are so stupid.

Sad. Gotta write more tickets LCSO! Our society is too lenient.

WELL, gotta send the correct message. Impound the car, 6 months suspended drivers license and a 5,000.00 fine. Maybe even some time in adult time out. Piss on those tickets. Oh, name and face in the paper.

We have done the past 2 years and love it!! It looks like the stop at Jefferson and Potomac view got left off this year โ˜น๏ธ. We are at Potomac view and oak lane so looks like bother are left off of the maps right now. Please let me know if I missed read!

We can’t wait! This is a photo from last year! Thank you all โค๏ธ

We were so thrilled when you came through University Center (George Washington Blvd. and Bles Park Rd.) a few years ago but this year and last year our areas disappeared from your maps. We'd really love to see you here, especially since we do receive your donation request mailings...

Broad run farms can't wait!

Looking forward to it!

What a lovely way to spread joy, THANK YOU โค๏ธ!!!

Love this!โค๏ธ

Soooo excited!

The SVFC Wednesday Volunteers took time out of their Saturday training to promote two of their own. Technician Javed was promoted to Technician (Tower Ladder), meaning he's fully released to drive and operate our aerial ladders. Firefighter Lockhart has been an acting Engine driver for some time, and was finally promoted to Technician. Congratulations to both of these gentlemen! If you're interested in serving your community with members like these two please visit joinsterlingfire.org to find out more. ... See MoreSee Less
