Fairfax/Vienna public-safety wins grant funding

Jun 5, 2018, Inside NOVA

The Vienna Volunteer Fire Department is part of a consortium that has received a $10,000 community-partnership grant from Transurban.

The volunteer department will share the grant funding with the Emergency Medical Services Bike Team of the Fairfax County Fire Department, designed to support ongoing emergency-response efforts during community events, in parks and on trails inaccessible by typical emergency-response vehicles.

“This team is a great example of the value in long-term community partnerships that help improve people’s lives,” said David Mueller, vice president of operations at Transurban North America.

Transurban is the operator of the I-495 and I-95 Express Lanes. The grant funding is in honor of the fifth anniversary of the I-495 Express Lanes.
