On Saturday May 29, AVFRD had the privilege of hosting a stop on the 60 mile trek for Ruck to Remember. The event began in Arlington National Cemetery as a mission for veterans to carry and release the burdens of losing fellow brothers-in-arms. It was an honor to provide a place for these veterans to rest and regroup.

Today we reflect on the heroic men and women who gave everything in service to our country. Their sacrifices remind us that freedom comes at a great cost and we are grateful for those who pay the price.

Hands-Only CPR - Virtual Open House 2021

Did you know there are two very simple things you can do if you see someone go into sudden cardiac arrest? Call 9-1-1, and start hands-only CPR. Early access to CPR and an AED can mean the difference between life and death for someone in cardiac arrest.

On day 5 of our Virtual Open House, join Assistant Rescue Chief Horvath and our members as they demonstrate hands-only CPR and go over what you should do in these types of emergencies.

Earlier this evening during a busy night for both our stations, Engine 606B and Truck 606 were dispatched for a structure fire in Company 23’s area. Units from Ashburn, Loudoun County, and Sterling arrived on scene to find fire through the roof of a home. Ashburn crews pulled a backup hose line and performed a primary search of the residence. Additional units from Leesburg, Arcola, and Fairfax County also responded. The cause is currently unknown and the Loudoun County Fire Marshal’s office will determine it.

Regardless of the cause, we remind everyone to check your smoke detectors and ensure they are in proper working order on every level of your home. If they’re more than 10 years old, replace them.

AVFRD Real women Wear Bunker Gear

Welcome to Strong Women Wednesday! For our fourth day of our Spring Virtual Open House we celebrate the women who gladly give of their time and work side-by-side their male counterparts. There is no "male version" and "female version" (often read as easier) for any of the training, both are held to the same standards. The National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) estimates that 70% of the firefighters in the United States are volunteers. Unfortunately women only make up 10% of that number. Let's change that!

Little girls should have dreams of being firefighters and EMTs!

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?
