Spring Into Action With the April Edition of “County Magazine”

The April edition of “County Magazine” will help you spring into action, offering everything from tips on gardening to getting the most updated information during an emergency.

Viewers will learn how to celebrate Arbor Day by planting a tree native to our area. The county’s urban foresters will give you recommendations on keeping this 133-year-old tradition alive. Learn about eco-savvy gardening from the master gardeners at Green Spring Gardens.

Tune in this month to learn more about the new Community Emergency Alert Network. This network, which county residents can sign up to join, delivers alerts and updates to e-mail accounts, cell or satellite phones, text pagers or wireless PDAs.

Also in this edition of “County Magazine,” find out how a local program, Project Discovery, is helping to make the dream of going to college a reality for kids with limited resources.

Viewers will learn about the county’s new Emergency Medical Service transport billing system. This new system won’t affect the high quality of care to which the county’s Fire and Rescue Department has always been committed. As “County Magazine” will explain, county residents will not be denied service because of their ability to pay, and county residents will not suffer financial hardship as a result of an emergency medical transport.

Plus, gain insight about trends in local transportation issues. The program will present highlights from the county’s recent transportation summit, which explored the challenges and obstacles to operating, maintaining and expanding one of the nation’s busiest transportation corridors.

“County Magazine,” with host Gail Eskew, can be viewed on Channel 16 each Monday at 7 p.m.; Tuesday at 6:30 p.m.; Thursday, Friday and Saturday at 3:30 p.m.; and Sunday at 1:30 p.m. The program may also be viewed on the Internet anytime during the month through Channel 16’s video-on-demand service at www.fairfaxcounty.gov.
