Cooler weather coming our way this weekend. Make sure to bundle up and that you’ve taken care of that chore of cleaning your vents and heaters before turning them on. https://t.co/ZZZ7evyXpa

Are you as excited as we are that the weekend is here? Remember that as leaves start to change and fall off the trees that having a nice fire pit in your back yard may be hazardous if you haven’t done your yard chores yet. Make sure to rake up those leaves. Right @ArlingtonVaFD? https://t.co/U6Zi5QzOnp
