Loudoun County Volunteer Rescue Squad

Loudoun County Volunteer Rescue Squad The Loudoun County Volunteer Rescue Squad provides 9-1-1 Emergency Services to the town of Leesburg, Va., and the surrounding area. Founded in 1952.
(36)

In 1952, 12 community members started the first rescue squad in Loudoun County. With only a donated Ford Ranch Wagon and basic first aid training, these volunteers responded to auto accidents and other requests for medical assistance. Since then, the technologies, training, and challenges of our service have changed greatly. What has not changed, however, is our members’ absolute commitment to the people we serve and our dedication to a simple motto – “When you need us… We are there.”

Today the Loudoun County Volunteer Rescue Squad has about 50 operational members, a dozen apparatus of various types, and a multi-million dollar facility on Catoctin Circle in Leesburg, Virginia. Working alongside our career colleagues from the Loudoun County Department of Fire and Rescue, our volunteer members contribute tens of thousands of hours a year running calls, training, doing public service, fundraising, and all the other functions necessary to operate a modern day rescue squad. Every hour of every day, we are prepared to provide not only basic medical care and emergency transport, but also advanced life support professionals, water rescue, and a wide variety of technical rescue capabilities to the people of Leesburg and the surrounding area. Our Mission:
The Loudoun County Volunteer Rescue Squad (LCVRS) is proud to serve Loudoun County with professional, award-winning delivery of emergency medical services. We are committed to provide timely, high quality, cost efficient service to all our citizens with our talented, professional staff. With the community's support, LCVRS will continue to offer innovative, technologically advanced solutions to meet and exceed the needs of our neighbors well into the new millennium.

Our providers have started to get their second COVID vaccine shots this week. A number of our members are also assisting with vaccination efforts either as vaccinators (our medics) or in other key support roles.

We are fortunate in Loudoun County (as well as the rest of NoVA) that we have a robust infrastructure and a large number of highly trained personnel (volunteer and career) that can get needles in arms on a large scale. The limiting factor has been availability of doses to administer.

We encourage people to thank and support their elected officials at the local, state, and federal levels who are actively working to secure more doses for our citizens. As always stay safe and continue to practice good habits to help prevent the further spread of COVID and other infectious diseases.

It is with profound sadness that the officers and members of the Loudoun County Volunteer Rescue Squad announce the passing of our friend and colleague, Roy Ott. Roy was a Life Member of the Leesburg Volunteer Fire Company with over 40 years of service to our community. While his first love was the fire service, Roy was also an EMT and frequently assisted us during high call volume by coming over to Station 13 and driving or serving as the lead EMT on an ambulance. He was especially known for his compassion and skill working with our older patients.

A strong proponent of youth programs, Roy helped train and mentor many current and past system members including his own daughter Sarah (pictured with her dad) who served our community as a member of LCVRS for a number of years.

Obituary and viewing information can be found at https://www.echovita.com/us/obituaries/va/round-hill/roy-dale-ott-12191536. Due to the current pandemic, the funeral service will be private.

Our thoughts and prayers are with his wife Becky, his daughters Crystal and Sarah, and all his many family, friends, and colleagues during this difficult time.

COVID-19 and Your Health

This week, our operational staff -- both volunteers and career -- began receiving the COVID-19 vaccine. This is an important part of our commitment to be able to safely and effectively protect and serve our community. Not only does the vaccine help keep our providers healthy and out of quarantine so that they can continue to answer 9-1-1 calls, it also reduces the risk that we might unknowingly spread the disease to our patients -- including the many high risk individuals we have daily contacts with.

We will also continue to use enhanced respiratory precautions and decon procedures with all of our patients.

We continue to be thankful for the tremendous support we have received from our community during these difficult and trying times.

Loudoun County Health Care Workers Begin Receiving COVID-19 Vaccine

The vaccine will be distributed in three phases. "...High-risk health care workers, first responders and people with comorbidities, underlying conditions, or who are in congregate care facilities" will make up the first phase. "The second phase of distribution will be for critical populations followed by the general population in the third phase. During the second phase, pharmacies should be able to offer the vaccines to customers followed by other dispensing partners in the third phase."

The Loudoun County Volunteer Rescue Squad remembers 9-11-01. Some of our system members served that day while others had not even been born yet. The event though -- and their sacrifices -- still touch and influence every one of us.

We remember and honor those who lost their lives that day, all those who served in the immediate aftermath, and those -- especially our military and intelligence officers -- who have continued to protect us from another such event happening.

It is with profound sadness that the officers and members of the Loudoun County Volunteer Rescue Squad learned of the death of Randy Breton on Friday. Randy was a valued member of the Loudoun County Fire and Rescue System in a variety of roles for 45 years. He was an officer, a paramedic, a historian, and perhaps most importantly a great teacher and mentor to many of us.

In the mid 2000s when our squad was rapidly building up its advanced life support (ALS) capabilities, Randy spent many hours helping to precept our members so that they could get released to serve the citizens of Leesburg and Loudoun County. Paramedic Stevan Porter shared some memories.

"When I was precepting as an EMT-Enhanced and later as an EMT-Intermediate, we had limited ALS preceptors at LCVRS. Randy was always willing to help and I spent many hours out in the "buggy" with him in Hamilton and western Loudoun County. Randy had a great way of helping new providers take what they learned in the classroom and figure out how to apply it in real world situations to become an effective field provider. I learned a great deal from him that in turn I have tried to pass on to the new providers I now work with as a preceptor and mentor. He created a legacy of service and outstanding care that will continue to grow through myself and the many other providers he trained."

Randy was a "larger than life" member of our system and he will be greatly missed. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family, his friends, and his colleagues during this difficult time.

Rest easy, our friend. You trained us well and we will continue to watch over and serve the community you gave so many years of your life to.

LCVRS Says Goodbye to Longstanding and Loved Member

J.B. Anderson was active with fire and rescue since 1966, and in that time he touched countless lives. He was a leader, a teacher, a role model and an all-around good soul. He made a positive impact on the world around him, and today we are saying goodbye to him with a heavy heart.

Please see our obituary for J.B. here:

It is with heavy hearts that the officers and members of the Loudoun County Volunteer Rescue Squad must report the death of life member JB Anderson. JB served our community in many ways over the years even as he battled cancer courageously. He will be greatly missed.

Some additional information from his family:

💙 After a courageous almost-5-year battle with stage 4 colon cancer, James Benton Anderson II aka J.B., Chief, Dad passed away last night (Friday, May 29, 2020) just before midnight (although it was officially Saturday morning when the hospice nurse came to declare TOD).

🙌🏼 Dad had an amazing day Thursday, enjoying fresh air on the porch for hours while listening to his favorite Oldies music 🎶 , and watching a beautiful sunset. 🌅 Friday morning he even asked to look out the window, so we turned his bed so he could more easily look outside all day long. 🚗 🚙 🚶🏻‍♀️ 🐕 🚶 He was up and speaking and eating on Friday before his oxygen levels dropped incredibly low and continued to drop.

🛏 J.B. passed away peacefully with his loving wife, his youngest son Brian, and his sister-in-law Donna here by his side before his oldest son Jamie and daughter Amanda made it to the house. It was quick and he did not seem to be in any pain.

👤 Nothing else is figured out yet, but we will let everyone know when they are. In these unprecedented times, there are restrictions for viewings and services and we are working to honor Dad’s wishes as best as possible.

🗓 Once we have a time and date for funeral services, we will let everyone know. We may wait a couple weeks to see if COVID-19 restrictions change to allow more people at once.

🙏🏼 Again, we thank you all for the positive thoughts, prayers, well wishes, phone calls, e-mails, cards, food, visits, comments - absolutely everything.
