Default Firebox maps

Anyone have a firebox map for Stafford county?

While I was searching I did find Arlington's, hopefully this will be useful to some folks

You might want to talk to the GIS office for the county. Some counties have firebox maps available through their GIS systems (though it doesn't appear that Stafford is one of them). They might also provide a printed map for sale.

Loudoun County, for example, has a layer under Public Safety called Fire Box Areas in their GIS system.

I am also noticing that many departments are starting to post their box or district maps on their websites. Maybe not Stafford (?), but anyone else that may be looking. Just a thought!

Thank you both for the ideas, unfortunately Stafford's GIS system doesn't have that overlay from what I can tell and they also don't seem to publish their map on their website like a lot of other counties do. I sent an email to the fire and rescue information address asking if they could send me one or post one on their website. I have my fingers crossed I at least get a reply.

But if nothing else, thanks for the link to the Loudoun maps
