Tomorrow the City of Alexandria and family, as well as firefighters from around the country, will says good bye to Joshua Weissman. Joshua is the EMT that perished in the line of duty last week Tribute to Fallen EMT at Fire Station 206 in Alexandria while responding to an emergency call on I-395 and fell from the highway into Four Mile Run.
The memorial service is scheduled to begin at 1pm and will be held at Beth El Hebrew Congregation at 3830 Seminary Road, but with 200 fire vehicles expected for the procession and potentially over a thousand attendees, the out pouring of support will overwhelm the buildings capacity. Tents have been erected across the street on the grounds of the Episcopal Seminary to capture the over flow crowd, on a day with projected rain showers all afternoon
Residents that are not attending the ceremony are urged to use alternate routes to help relieve the anticipated congestion in the area.
