In cases of physical danger, members of the public can enter the 24/7 “Safe Haven” lobby and press an emergency button, which locks the exterior door and automatically calls Arlington’s Emergency Communications Center.
Stations with “Save Haven” lobbies:
- Fire Station 2 – Ballston
- Fire Station 3 – Cherrydale / Military Road
- Fire Station 5 – Jefferson District / Aurora Highlands
- Fire Station 6 – Falls Church
- Fire Station 9 – Walter Reed
The appearance of the Emergency Call Boxes may vary slightly in the different “Safe Haven” lobbies but they all function the same. Pushing the emergency button will directly call 9-1-1, lock the exterior lobby doors and activate a camera.
