    Could have flooded out last big rain, some areas got 5~6 inches and that creek looks to be one that could be prone overflowing the road since the culvert, (from I can see in the pics) doesn't look that big.

    Looking behind tag, a picture clue:
    [​IMG]

    The clue:
    FCFRD consists of 40 fire stations spread out across the county's 407 square miles (1,050 km2), serving a population of 1.15 million residents.[2] With over 1,300 uniformed staff, 300 civilian employees, and 300 operational volunteers, the Fairfax County Fire and Rescue Department is the largest fire department in the Commonwealth of Virginia.[2]

    As part of the Metropolitan Washington Council of Governments, Fairfax County Fire and Rescue is labeled number 4 in the 800 MHz trunked radio system. All FCFR units begin with 4 followed by the station number. For example, the engine from station 10 is Engine 410, and the tower-ladder from station 40 is Tower 440. During an emergency that would require a response from multiple agencies, dispatchers are quickly able to identify what county a particular piece of apparatus came from.

    Happy Tagging! :clap

    In the spirit of no man, or in this case, gator, left behind, I went searching at the previous tag site and found a clue! Next to Ali's dog tags was this tiny plastic banana. At this point we should suspect the perp to be a tiny primate, possibly of the Pan genus. This case remains unsolved.[​IMG][​IMG]

    Not I since I'm not visually familiar with all 40 Fairfax stations, I'd need more clues.
    Perhaps next time.

    ACTUALLY there are only 38 stations in fairfax county . Stations 6,7 don't exist and the numbers were skipped , probably made into training academy numbers . And stations 3,33 are operated by the city of fairfax which is a totally different department .


    Prince William county is the same

    Stations 1,9,21 are operated by manassas city and manassas park (different departments) and station "19" is technically the training academy . Station 22 was skipped but is set to be built very soon off balls ford road. Land has been purchased and it will house an engine , medic ,heavy rescue, and a collapse unit .

    I'm fearing for Alis well being. One of you city slickers must be close enough to grab her?
