Welcome to the Ashburn Volunteer Fire & Rescue Department page! 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 cl

Do you have dinner plans tomorrow night? Why not let Texas Roadhouse do the cooking for you? Great way to escape the heat of the kitchen and those rolls are the best!! That is a win/win! Don't forget to show them this flyer for us to get credit.
Ruck to Remember (now known as Honor Movement) is a grueling 3 day, 60 mile trek Memorial Day weekend that snakes through Loudoun county then to Arlington National Cemetery and culminating at the US Marine Corps War Memorial. Individuals carry 35 pound "ruck sacks" and over the course of the ruck SOVs (Stories of Valor) are shared. Planned stops along the way are places for rest and camaraderie. AVFRD was once again pleased and honored to host one of those stops this past weekend. For more information about the movement visit their website rucktoremember.org
All gave some, some gave all. To the brave men an women who paid the ultimate sacrifice for our freedom, we humbly give our thanks on this day of remembrance.
With swimming pools now open across the area, Loudoun County Fire and Rescue (LCFR) reminds residents to be vigilant about pool and water safety. Not including boating incidents, on average about 10 people die from drowning every day in the U.S., according to the National Safety Council. Educate your family about water safety before your next trip to the pool by reading LCFR’s water safety tips here: loudoun.gov/CivicAlerts.aspx?AID=7656.
Often considered the unofficial kick-off to summer, Memorial Day weekend includes lots of celebrations, cookouts, and barbeques. But it also means the increased risk of grilling fires. Failing to properly clean and maintain the grill, leaving food unattended, and placing a grill too close to anything that can burn are significant fire hazards: loudoun.gov/CivicAlerts.aspx?AID=7664

During the height of COVID-19 pandemic we all were affected, yet our members still showed up in force to support their community. The county even called upon our members who who had training to assist in giving vaccines. From education, to first aid and even inoculations our volunteers are eager to show up and put their skills to use for the residents in their community.
It's EMS Week and what better time to talk about training. It takes months of classroom and practical training to become an EMT, then many more months of precepting (in the field under supervision) to be a released EMT. That doesn't include the time studying to pass the National Registry, NREMT. But guess what? Training never stops. There is always something new to add to the skill set, or new tools to learn how to
use. Training keeps the saw sharp and ensures we are prepared to respond to any emergency. We also believe in training the up and coming, younger generation who show interest in joining us.

Today kicks off the start of EMS Week 2022-"Rising to the Challenge"
The Ashburn Volunteer Fire and Rescue Department would like to start off this week by saying “Thank You!!!” to all of our EMS providers and first responders. We want you to know that your efforts spent in all aspects of EMS are known and appreciated. We recognize all of the hard work and time spent preparing for and responding to emergencies. This time often represents long hours spent away from home, holidays away from family. No matter what happens, you are always ready for that next call.
Our Department's greatest resource always has been and always will be our people. The members of our AVFRD consistently rise above the challenges that they are presented day after day.
EMS providers everywhere exemplify this year's theme in every aspect of their daily lives. Rising to the Challenge can be seen in the innovative ways that our department adapted to mitigate the pandemic and continues to push forward to ensure that everyone in our community has access to EMS care.
These amazing professionals volunteer thousands of hours every year and we want to say thank you to all of you for your service and commitment to the citizens of Loudoun County.
During this week, stay on the look out as we will be sharing some highlights of AVFRD's first responders and all that they do for the citizens of the Loudoun County.
Happy EMS week!
We had the honor of welcoming back the Honor Flight, a group of veterans who traveled to Washington DC to visit their monuments, as they returned to the Ashburn Senior Center today. AVFRD and @lccfrs career personnel together erected a flag arch to honor these patriots for their service to us all.

Did someone say pancakes? Hope to see everyone at pancake breakfast this weekend! You may purchase tickets online or at the door! Come hungry and support our volunteers.
On Saturday, May 7, members of AVFRD, with assistance from the Loudoun County Volunteer Rescue Squad, supported a standby for the 2nd annual Run the Greenway 5K and 10K held on the Dulles Greenway. Despite the (at times heavy) rain, our members worked closely with the race staff and made sure this was a safe event for the 1,000 runners who came out and braved the conditions. Thanks to all those who ran to support us and to our members who helped make sure this was a successful event!
Fire Sale...Actually a chicken sale. It seems we bought too many for our Chicken BBQ. Our oops is your score. Uncooked chickens can be purchased at AVFRD Station 6 for $7 until 6:00PM. Get'em while they're still available. Unfortunately we are not accepting orders for the BBQ.
UPDATE: OWNERS HAVE BEEN FOUND!!
Anyone missing their sweet babies? These two were found wandering near the firehouse on Old Ashburn Road. No tags or collars. Please spread the word and help us get these cuties back to their humans.

• Portable outdoor fireplaces and chimineas are not considered open burning but must be used in accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions and shall not be operated within 15 feet of a structure or combustible material. Single-family, attached and detached, homes are exempt from the distance mandate but are strongly encouraged to follow this fire safe practice.
• On a year-round basis, open burning (to include campfires) is always prohibited in the town limits of Lovettsville, Middleburg, Purcellville, Round Hill, and all subdivisions ("urban or built-up areas") throughout the county.
Fire Marshal Disclaimer: The Loudoun County Fire Marshal may impose regulations, at any time, based upon complaint, atmospheric or other environmental circumstances, to restrict or extinguish any fire that is otherwise permitted according to these guidelines.
Violations and Penalty: Any person who violates the fire code could be convicted of a Class 1 misdemeanor, which carries a penalty of a fine up to $2,500 and up to a year in jail. Further, if convicted, a person may be required to compensate the locality for the full costs of fighting a fire.

Have you placed your order yet? There's still time, and remember you need to pre-order.
This week, 14 of our volunteers travelled to Indianapolis to participate in the FDIC firefighting conference, taking time away from family and their day jobs to enhance their skills through a variety of hands-on training sessions and classroom-based learning opportunities. The members featured in this photo just completed a 4-hour class on advanced vehicle extrication.
We want to extend a huge round of thanks to the members who are attending the conference for always striving to be the best you can be as you serve our community. We also thank our many volunteers and Loudoun County Fire and Rescue career staff who are taking extra shifts and backfilling for our travelling members throughout the week!
It takes a special type of person to volunteer their time to the fire and rescue services. The sheer amount of hours spent in training to achieve their certifications, coupled with the amount of time spent running on duty and assisting in public education events is mind boggling. Then there are the special breed of members who make this a lifestyle. Members who have 15 or more years of service are given the status of Lifetime Members. You simply cannot put a price tag on what they have given to their community. We thank them profusely and their generous families that allow them the time to be part of our organization.
Every organization has those unsung hero's that never really get recognized and we are no different. Our Administrative members work tirelessly behind the scenes to help keep this well oiled machine running smoothly. It's amazing how much work it takes! They run our fundraisers, handle building issues, plan our special events, assist with community outreach and education, run our website and social media, and do just about anything besides going on calls. But to be honest, we could not function without them. They allow our Operational members to focus on the job of saving life and limb. Thank you to these behind the scenes people of AVFRD!
