Sterling Volunteer Fire Company

Sterling Volunteer Fire Company The Sterling Volunteer Fire Company, founded in 1966, is a non-profit volunteer organization where brave men and women are saving lives and property in the Sterling, Va area. To find out how you can join the SVFC family visit sterlingfire.org/join
The Sterling Volunteer Fire Company was founded in 1966 when Sterling was made up of only a few homes and businesses. Our community has since experienced record growth over the past few years and is continuing to grow at an astounding rate. Simultaneously, emergency responses more than doubled in less than a decade to an amount of over 3,000 per year. The Sterling Volunteer Fire Company continues to have the fastest response time of any Loudoun County Fire Service, even given the fact that we are the busiest company also. We are your neighbors, friends, coworkers, fellow worshipers, and the “strangers” you chat with in the grocery line. We live or work along side you in the community. We represent a multitude of occupations with a wide range of skills. Everyone can contribute in some way. We volunteer for different reasons, but we share one professional goal: to be there when you need us. Our operational volunteers are professionally trained firefighters. Our associate volunteers perform a variety of functions and keep things running “behind the scenes.” It is the combined effort and energy of our entire team that allows us to respond immediately when we are called upon.

Chimney Fire for Thursday Crew

Just before 10pm on Thursday night Engine and Truck 611 and Engine 618 were dispatched for a chimney fire in Sterling Park. Ambulance 625 from Sterling Volunteer Rescue Squad and Battalion Chief and Safety Officer 601 from Loudoun County Fire and Rescue were also on the call. E611 arrived with nothing evident from the outside. Units investigated the chimney and attic space and found fire in the attic. The call was upgraded to a house fire, which added Engine 624, Engine and Rescue 439, Truck 425, and Battalion Chief 401 from Fairfax County Fire and Rescue Department it was extinguished by E611. E618 and T611 exterior crews had ladders in place, controlled utilities, provided scene lighting, and completed other tasks in support of the interior units. Once the fire was completely extinguished units began to pack up and return to service.

Good information. Those of you with weather radios or cell phone apps no doubt received several alerts today for this area. Most alerts were probably for severe thunderstorms, but those are what can spawn a tornado. Check this out and know what alert you are getting and what it means!

Know the difference:
➡️ Tornado Watch: Be aware. Tornadoes are possible.
➡️ Tornado Warning: Take action. A tornado has been sighted or indicated by weather radar. 🌪

National Public Safety Telecommunicators Week is April 12-18, 2020

Our hardworking dispatchers and public safety telecommunicators serve as a vital link between our community and fire, medical, and law enforcement. Acting as a critical lifeline to other first responders, these unsung everyday heroes are always there to answer the call. The SVFC thanks those "voices on the radio" at Loudoun County Fire and Rescue (and those with Loudoun County Sheriff's Office and Loudoun County Animal Services) for their part in keeping our community safe.

Many things look different for SVFC and the rest of the Loudoun County Combined Fire Rescue System these days, but training never stops. Today students of the ongoing Driver/Pump Operator class learning how to operate the onboard pump to deliver water on fire calls, focusing on drafting (getting water from a static source rather than from a hydrant). The multi-week course starts with classroom sessions covering the theory and math involved, moves through practical exercises, and will culminate in a written and practical test. Successful students will bring their knowledge back to their agencies and be eligible for promotion from Firefighter to Technician (driver).

Words can't express the impact our community's generosity has on the morale of our first responders at this time.

Congratulations to ALL of the graduates! A job well done. We are, of course, particularly proud of our own graduating members, including the two Top Students of their classes, Nick Prior and Samantha Sanchez.. All join public service at a time of great disruption in our country, and we are confident they will help SVFC and other organizations in Loudoun uphold a tradition of selfless public service and professionalism as first responders stand together with our colleagues in the medical profession to help our communities.

Please see the attached post for details about changes to the Loudoun County Combined Fire Rescue System operations. Rest assured that both county personnel and the Sterling volunteers are still here to serve you and do our best to keep you and your loved ones safe. All public events, gatherings in our station, etc. have been suspended until further notice.

🚨Please read and share the following safety and social distancing measures that have been enacted for the Loudoun County Combined Fire and Rescue System. Some items below affect upcoming events, inspections and public education opportunities.🚨

As our region continues to deal with the spread of COVID-19, firefighters, emergency medical professionals and 9-1-1 dispatchers within the Loudoun County Combined Fire and Rescue System (LC-CFRS) remain fully staffed and ready to answer your call. Emergency response will not change and there have been no reductions in service. Call or text 9-1-1 if you are having an emergency!

In order to protect our first responders, essential employees and citizens from additional risk of exposure to COVID-19, LC-CFRS has instituted several operational practices as well as social distancing sanctions such as:

✅ LC-CFRS personnel are being actively monitored for signs and symptoms of illness before each shift. Any demonstrating flu-like symptoms will not be allowed to remain in the station/worksite or respond to incidents.

✅ Our first responders are using enhanced personal protective equipment and decontamination procedures on emergency incidents and at worksites such as:
▪️Maintaining six feet of distance from patients upon arrival and for our initial assessment, when possible.
▪️Using personal protective equipment such as masks, goggles, gloves and gowns to limit exposures.
▪️Placing masks on patients, when possible.
▪️LC-CFRS members are systematically disinfecting exposed surfaces, high touch points, and any equipment in our stations and on emergency apparatus.

✅ Fire stations will be closed to the public and any non-essential personnel.
▪️This does not apply to any person suffering a medical emergency.
▪️Food donations from the public will not be accepted at LC-CFRS stations and worksites. Although the kindness and generosity of our residents is appreciated, the safety of our first responders is paramount.

✅ Public events scheduled at any LC-CFRS Stations or with LC-CFRS personnel have been postponed or cancelled until further notice. LC-CFRS staff will not be participating in school/daycare visits, fire station tours, birthday parties, “touch a truck” type events, fundraising or other community outreach events.

✅ Loudoun County Fire Marshal inspection activities may be re-scheduled or postponed. For information, please call 703-737-8600 during regular business hours.

✅ Fire and life safety remain critical considerations especially as we are spending more time in our homes.
▪️Visit www.loudoun.gov/fireprevention for information on safety measures such as smoke alarms, home escape planning and fire prevention. Loudoun County residents may still call 703-737-8093, email us or visit www.loudoun.gov/smokealarms to request assistance with smoke alarms.

Loudoun County Fire and Rescue headquarters remains operational during normal business hours however we are operating under increased telework and social distancing measures. Please call 703-777-0333 to contact our staff for NON-EMERGENT information or visit our website www.loudoun.gov/fire.

Thank you so much for having us, Cub Scout Pack 1156, out to your Fire Station tonight! It was so fun 🙂👍🏻 You guys rock! Thank you for what you do for us.
Thankful for you ❤️🎄💯
First... my thanks to the Sterling Volunteer Fire Department for showing up at 1:30am. Ladies and Gentlemen... thank you for your service! Someone must have lost control of tomorrow's turkey dinner as the hallways were smoky and arid with the smell of burning grease. Luckily it was a non-event but they showed up like the cavalry in quick order and I'm back inside as of 1:55am.
The Fire and the rescue personnel (Paid and volunteer) have earn high praise for years of giving.
Past President George Lewis has passed away. See Wendy Cains post for service info.
Going above and beyond! Just stopped on the way out from a job to make this little guys day. Thanks for your great work!
Chief Clyde Buchanan, Many thanks to your volunteers: Lt matt Solomon, Tom Weaver, Lance O'Brien, Isaac Montano, and Justin Dillon who helped load hose on my antique fire engine. As age is catching up with me, I could not have done without their fine help. You are truly blessed with great volunteers. Flash
Thank you soooo much for showing my grandson, Lucas, the “big fire trucks”!! He had a blast👏👏❤️
From the Sterling Ruritan Club: The Sterling Ruritan Club will be hosting an open house tomorrow night for the first responders. We welcome all Law Enforcement, fire and recsue members. The club will be opened from 6pm December 31st until 4 am January 1st. We will have food, coffee. , Sodas, water, desserts, chips, etc and a warm building for you to take a break. We would also like to thank the Sterling Community for the generous donations. We will post a list of restaurants, stores, Ruritan members and Community members who have donated to this great cause at a later date. This is just a little way we can give back to those who serve and protect us to make our community a safe place.
Thank you for your service!
