Ashburn Volunteer Fire Rescue Department - AVFRD

Ashburn Volunteer Fire Rescue Department - AVFRD Welcome to the Ashburn Volunteer Fire & Rescue Department page!
(55)

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.

Meet our neighbor Sandy. Sandy (Calderon Manor) was selling pottery at today's craft show at the Ashburn Village Sports Pavilion.

Ashburn's Truck 606 was dispatched overnight for a structure fire in Sterling. Sterling Volunteer Fire Company was first on scene to the fire.
Our volunteers were dispatched as part of the Rapid Intervention Team (RIT).

Busy morning for Crew 4

Just after 2am on Tuesday, 7/10 Engine 611 was alerted for a car fire. As they were arriving to handle that situation Tower 611, Engines 618 and 624, Engine 404, Rescue 439 and Tower 436 from Fairfax County Fire and Rescue Department, Engine 623, Battalions 601 and 603, EMS and Safety 601 from Loudoun County Fire and Rescue, and Ambulance 635 from Sterling Volunteer Rescue Squad were alerted for a townhouse fire in Sterling. Tower 611 was the first unit on scene and found fire visable from the reported address. They worked to make entry into the townhouse to ensure that all occupants were out safely. E618 arrived next, followed closely by E624, and began extinguishing the fire from outside while Tower 611 gained access, then they transitioned inside. A Rapid Intervention Team Level 1 was requested (standard for a working fire in Loudoun County) which added Engine 436, (the new) Tiller 606 from Ashburn Volunteer Fire Rescue Department - AVFRD, and Operations 600. Units had the fire under control in about 15 minutes and began smoke removal and ensuring that the fire was completely extinguished and hadn’t spread, while the Fire Marshal’s office began their investigation.

George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Benjamin Franklin, Samuel Adams, John Hancock, Paul Revere, Alexander Hamilton, John Jay, Aaron Burr, James Buchanan and Millard Fillmore - all Volunteer Fire Fighters!

Benjamin Franklin wrote of the volunteers in the first American volunteer fire company, which he founded, calling them "Brave men, men of Spirit and Humanity, good Citizens and Neighbours, capable and worthy of civil society, and the Enjoyment of a happy Government."

On this July 4th, we celebrate a group of neighbors who came together and declared their intention to create a better American community. Today, we are all called upon to continue the work of our Founders - our nation can still be bettered when neighbors step up to serve their community. Be patriotic - volunteer to serve your neighbors. Learn more at: https://ashburnfirerescue.org/volunteer/.

The Call

Relying on volunteer firefighters is an American tradition that dates back to Revolutionary times. Did you know that approximately 65% of active firefighters in Loudoun County are volunteers? Your neighbors at Ashburn Volunteer Fire Rescue Department - AVFRD freely give of their time and energy - often at the expense of family time, overtime pay and sleep - because we believe that when neighbors help neighbors, our community becomes stronger and safer.

This video (https://vimeo.com/223485932) captures the spirit of American volunteer firefighting. While we typically don't respond from home in Ashburn (our volunteers cover a 12-hour shift - 6pm-6am - from the station every night to ensure the highest level of service for our community), the themes in this animated video ring true for your neighbors who serve as volunteer firefighters, EMTs and administrative support staff in Ashburn and surrounding Loudoun County Volunteer Fire-Rescue departments.

Are you interested in serving your community? Visit https://ashburnfirerescue.org/volunteer to learn more!

There’s a fire. You call for help. Who answers? The vast majority of Americans live in places that don’t have a single firefighter on the payroll.…

Truck 606 Goes in Service

Volunteers (both operational and administrative) push in the new Truck 606 into Ashburn Volunteer Fire Rescue Department - AVFRD Station 6 for its first night in service at 6:00pm on June 27th, 2018. Truck 6 is a Tractor Drawn Aerial (TDA) truck (sometimes called a Tiller Truck). The truck was purchased by the non-profit volunteer company for approximately $1.3million, including the cost of tools and accessories. The purchase was made possible through the support and donations of our generous neighbors. With the truck now in service, Loudoun County will reimburse the company 59% of the purchase price. Truck 6 went on its first call, a structure fire assignment, in Broadlands at approximately 9pm.
