Rosslyn's own Fire Station 10 was first on the scene with its hook-and-ladder Engine 110. Station 1 on Glebe Rd. came in with hook-and-ladder Engine 101. Station 9 from the Nauck neighborhood contributed Rescue 109. This vehicle handles the human side of an apartment fire disaster. The largest vehicle was the Hazardous Material Response Team's truck-and-trailer, also coming out of the Glebe Rd. station. Overall, it was a spectacular display of fire trucks.
Given that Arlington contains the Pentagon and the historically important Westmoreland Terrace Condominiums (just across from this fire call), the Arlington Fire Department needs top-notch fire-fighting capabilities. While not everyone can have a life-sized fire truck, you can contribute to fire security by making sure that you have a working smoke detector.
