    • Just thought I would throw this out to anyone looking for a place to live in PWC a suburb close to Fairfax County. I have 2 rooms for rent in a 2400 sq ft condo. The condo is located at the corner of Rt. 15 and Lee Hwy. in Madison Crescent Gainesville VA. It is 3 year old construction and is conveniently located in walking distance to bars, restaurants, gym and a grocery store. I am looking for roommates that are responsible, clean up after themselves, turn off light's/AC/Heat when not being used, and respectful. I am flexible if you are interested in a short or longer term lease. You will have access to a bathroom you would share with one other person. The house also features a full size washer/dryer, beautiful kitchen, flat screen t.v. in living area, deck. I'm a firefighter in Arlington County so thought I would reach out to anyone moving to the area. Shoot me a text if interested 571 two one three 2383 for more details.

              • I'm moving my family there from Ohio, looking to get a town house with a finished basement and have a room mate. If anyone needs a place to stay message me.
                Alot of the townhouses I've looked at have everything you'd need in the basement and your own entrance.

                      • Recruitment sent out an email with information for the academy but also stated a class roster will be sent out so I guess everything is go to go for now.

                        • Any Paramedics with the department that would be willing to answer a few questions via PM? I've searched threads but none of the questions have been answered for a few years and I assume things may have changed. Would appreciate it.

                              I don't know. However, use this info for what it may be worth. There's a Fairfax lieutenant in my medic class who had visited recruitment recently and according to him, he was told by Lt. Williams that the class is not filled yet. He also said Captain Mensah is not currently in the office, which could possibly mean no other decisions have been made yet, and that they usually make calls up until 2 weeks before the start of class. Like I said unfortunately I can't confirm its true or not, so take it for what you will.
