Ashburn Volunteer Fire Rescue Department - AVFRD

Ashburn Volunteer Fire Rescue Department - AVFRD Welcome to the Ashburn Volunteer Fire & Rescue Department page!
The Ashburn Volunteer Fire & Rescue Department (AVFRD) is a volunteer fire & rescue department that provides fire and emergency medical services to the citizens and visitors of Ashburn, Lansdowne and surrounding communities. Like all fire & rescue companies in Loudoun County, AVFRD is part of a combination career and volunteer system. Loudoun County Fire & Rescue career personnel staff both stations between the hours of 6:00 a.m. and 6:00 p.m., and volunteers staff both stations between 6:00 p.m. and 6:00 a.m. Station 6 also houses a twenty-four hour career Medic. Currently, AVFRD has approximately 200 active members. We are your neighbors, friends, coworkers, and the "strangers" you chat with in line at the grocery store. We represent a wide range of occupations, with a wide range of skills, but we share one professional goal: to be there when you need us. AVFRD is always looking for hardworking and dedicated members. Take the time to read our membership section (www.ashburnfirerescue.org) to learn more about volunteering in your community.

Since 1944, the Ashburn Volunteer Fire and Rescue Department (AVFRD) has been answering your calls. We are a part of the Loudoun County Fire and Rescue system, responding from Station 6 (Ashburn) and Station 22 (Landsdowne). Our community is growing and so is the need for volunteers to become trained firefighters and emergency medical technicians (EMTs). We also need administrative volunteers to assist with community outreach, public education, fundraising, publicity, building maintenance and clerical duties. As a non-profit organization, we rely on the community that we serve to support us. Visit our website for more information on how you can support us through our fundraising events and general donations.

Mission: The Ashburn Volunteer Fire & Rescue Department (AVFRD) is committed to protecting the lives and property of Ashburn and Loudoun County residents and visitors by providing the best possible fire, rescue, emergency and medical response services. We pledge to perform our duty with courage and dedication. We also strive to be active in our community and proactive with public education and prevention campaigns.

Our flag flies at half staff today in respect and memory of U.S. Marine Corps Staff Sergeant Benjamin S. Hines. Staff Sgt. Hines was killed in April while operating in Afghanistan in an attack that also killed Staff Sgt. Christopher K.A. Slutman, a FDNY firefighter and a life member of Kentland Volunteer Fire Department in Maryland, and Cpl. Robert A. Hendriks of NY.

Staff Sgt. Hines was an Ashburn resident prior to his deployment to Afghanistan. His remains are being escorted by police from his hometown in York County, PA to his final resting place at Arlington National Cemetery today.

Are you looking for ways to serve your neighbors (that don't involve running into burning buildings or handling medical emergencies)? Check out Loudoun Volunteer Caregivers! Like your neighbors who serve in our Loudoun County Volunteer Fire-Rescue departments, the Caregivers are all about #NeighborsHelpingNeighbors. Whether it's delivering meals or helping with their Chore Corps (simple repairs and chores in and around the house), this is one of the many ways you can strengthen and unite our community!

We partner with area food pantries to deliver food to those who are homebound. We currently have approx. 100 families that we assist.
If you are looking to volunteer and have time to pick up a pre-packaged bags of food and deliver it to someone in your community, please contact Michelle.

Thank you for stopping by Loudoun County Chamber of Commerce!

Thanks to Ashburn Volunteer Fire Rescue Department - AVFRD for having our team our to tour your beautiful station. 🧯 2 important tips to know: 1) Smoke alarm checks and free installation are available at the station to those in need from Loudoun! 2) Be sure to close your bedroom doors at night so that fire will not spread. 🚒 Fun fact about a fire stations's spiral staircases: they are traditionally spiral so that the station horses couldn't walk up them--they would try to rest in the firefighters’ beds!

Happy International Women's Day! Women have been serving the Ashburn Volunteer Fire and Rescue Department since we opened in 1944. They started as Women's Auxiliary Members and in the 1980's we had our first female firefighter. Now, women serve in all areas of the fire department, including leadership positions! Thank you to all the women who keep Ashburn safe and serve the community.

Ashburn units, along with Leesburg, Sterling and Loudoun County were on-scene at this fire at Lansdowne Woods today. Ashburn volunteers had an extra engine in service during the day today, providing additional resources for this incident and allowing neighboring units to stay ready for other emergency responses in their own areas.

Loudoun, a fire in one of the tallest buildings in Loudoun (12 stories high) is a very serious matter. Thankfully everyone is safe. Our First Responders are heroes. They deserve our support and appreciation.
