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 Eligible for Phase 2 Can Register for COVID-19 Vaccine Starting Monday

On Monday, April 19, 2021, the Commonwealth of Virginia will be issuing a Wireless Emergency Alert (WEA) System message alerting everyone 16+ that they are now eligible to register for a COVID-19 vaccine under phase 2. Those with cell phones with emergency alerts turned on will receive the message on Monday morning around 10 a.m. EST.

The Federal Communication Commission’s Public Safety and Homeland Security Bureau allows the state, as an authorized alert originator of messages, to use the WEA system as a COVID-19 communications tool.

Virginia will send alerts through the FEMA Federal Emergency Management Agency’s Integrated Public Alert and Warning System (IPAWS) to participating wireless carriers, which then push the alerts to compatible mobile devices in the area.

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.
