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.
(43)

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.

At 11:26 hours on May 1 Loudoun County Fire and Rescue and Ashburn Volunteer Fire Rescue Department – AVFRD were alerted for a structure fire. En-route to the address Engine 623 alerted Battalion Chief 604 of a column of smoke in the area. Battalion Chief 604 asked for a level I RIT to be dispatched. Engine 623 (Moorefield) and Engine 619 (Dulles South) arrived on scene to find a 2 story single family home with a large fire coming from the garage. Engine 623 and Engine 619 began to extinguish the fire using two 1 ¾ attack lines. Truck 606B (Ashburn) arrived on scene with Truck 619 (Dulles South) and began a primary and secondary search of the number 1 and 2 floors. Once the search was complete T606B began to assist E619 in opening up the garage wall and laundry room wall to check for hot spots and extension. Safety 601 kept an eye out for hazards and M609C (Arcola) and EMS 601 were on standby if needed. The scene was turned over to the Fire Marshal’s office for investigation and crews returned to service.

Once again we are on the receiving end of a much needed donation and overwhelmed with gratitude. On Tuesday, April 27 the Sterling Rotary Club dropped by to donate some PPE storage cases. It is generosity and donations such as this that has helped sustain us through the pandemic. Many thanks to Ingrid Stritch and the rest of the Rotarians!

What does it look like to be a volunteer with AVFRD? I’m not going to sugarcoat it - it can be a great deal of work and a big time commitment. We train and then train some more. We render mutual aid when surrounding neighbors need us. We support public events like races and the presidential inauguration, and this year our members stepped in to help administer COVID vaccines. Our college students come home and run crews on their breaks. We never shy away or waste an opportunity to stand up for our ideals and purpose, sometimes at great personal risk. But we are family. Our duty crews become extended brothers and sisters, and yes there are entire families who dedicate their time. Occasionally we meet the love of our life, and we even announce impending “new probies”. And through it all there is a bunch of fun and laughter.

So...are you interested in joining our family?

Congratulations to our very own Rianna Starheim for being recognized at the LCCFRS 2020 Awards and Recognition Ceremony last week as the volunteer EMS Provider of the Year! This award honors an EMS provider of the system who exemplifies outstanding performance in the day-to-day ex*****on of their duties, and their outstanding service and dedication, which are keeping with the highest traditions of the fire and rescue system. If records were maintained, we are confident the average number of calls Rianna ran per month last year would set a new record for a volunteer EMS Provider in Loudoun County! Her accomplishments in her first year as a volunteer at AVFRD are unprecedented. Way to go, Rianna!

Our Story

We believe that when neighbors help neighbors, our community becomes stronger and safer. The Ashburn Volunteer Fire and Rescue Department (AVFRD) has been serving our neighbors since our founding in 1944. Today, our 150+ volunteers freely give of their time and energy - often at the expense of family time, overtime pay and sleep - to respond to our neighbors’ calls for help from Station 6 (Ashburn) and Station 22 (Landsdowne) as part of the Loudoun County Combined Fire and Rescue system. We are a diverse group of men and women, with ages from 16-90, representing the wide variety of cultures, professions and families in our community.

Our volunteers, past and present, share a common set of values - pride, dedication, sacrifice, family, diversity, duty and a sense of community. If you share these values and are looking for a challenge, a way to give back to your community or to be a part of something that truly matters, come, be a part of our tradition; Volunteer as an EMT or Firefighter. You don't need to be a resident of Ashburn to join us, and no experience is necessary - we'll provide all of the training you need. The skills and experiences our volunteers gain through their training and service are taken back into the community where they benefit our day jobs, our families, our neighbors and ourselves.

Our volunteer ranks also include administrative members. Want to be part of the action, but not interested in running into burning buildings or riding on an ambulance? Our Administrative Members provide administrative and fund-raising support for the operation and the business of our department. From accounting, computer support, public relations, marketing, maintenance, IT, community education and administrative functions – there’s plenty to do behind the scenes. Anyone who does not have the desire to participate directly in operational services, or those who cannot meet the physical demands for serving as a Firefighter/EMT or EMT are encouraged to bring their unique skills to the community as an Administrative Member of AVFRD.

As a non-profit organization, we rely on the community that we serve to support us. Visit our website at https://ashburnfirerescue.org for more information on how you can support us through our fundraising events and general donations.

Hi! Many,many...many years ago, when I was running the Explorer Post, we did a controlled burn at the intersection of (now) LoCo Parkway and Waxpool Road where all the data centers are. The house was sitting by its lonesome on the SW corner. Do you all have a "before" picture by ANY wild chance?
