September 1st kicks off National Preparedness Month and it seems apt that we are currently under a Tornado Watch until 7PM, a River Flood Watch until 7:45PM, and a Flash Flood Warning until 8:00AM September 2, 2021. This year’s theme is “Prepare to Protect”. Below is a link for a resource with information on how you can be ready for all kinds of disasters. The best way to ensure your family is safe is knowledge and being prepared! Remember to “turn around don’t drown”, it only takes less than 12 inches to carry away most cars. Be safe out there today!

Volunteer - Ashburn Volunteer Fire and Rescue Department

You grew up, but it's not too late to be what you always wanted to be. Volunteering as a firefighter or emergency medical technician in Ashburn will help you be who you've dreamed you could be, even while you keep on adulting in your day job or at home with family. Attend our Volunteer Interest Meeting - Firefighters, EMTs, and Administrative this coming Tuesday to learn more.

Our community is growing and so is the need for operational volunteers to become trained firefighters, emergency medical technicians (EMTs) & admin members.

Last week our department sent 10 firefighters to the FDIC International, an annual, international conference for training firefighters. This year our firefighters took classes on specialized rescues, firefighting tactics, leadership, and more! This is one of the biggest groups we have sent to the conference over the years. It serves as another example of AVFRD’s dedication to education, training, and improving ourselves for the betterment of the community. #fdic2021 #FDIC #fireengineering #firefighter #volunteerfirefighter

With all of the destruction and trauma our members see and often being there for someone on their worst day ever, we really celebrate our successes and happy times. The engagements, the promotions, new homes, and the new additions to families are all life affirming reasons to be grateful. Recently we had two of our EMS members become nationally certified Paramedics. The process is grueling and time consuming, but both Sarah and Erica got through it with the support of the station and their families. And Friday, August 6th we welcomed a new baby for members Matt and Alexandra Quist. Little “Hank” was born at 10:05AM weighing 7lbs 2oz and 21 inches! Welcome Hank!!

Admin members with AVFRD very rarely get to experience the “other side”. Last Thursday I decided to change that. The goal for my ride along was to see what a normal duty crew night was like for our Operational members, specifically those who are part of suppression (i.e. firefighters). Career personnel staff the station seven days a week from 6:00AM to 6:00PM. Our crews run Sunday through Friday from 6:00 PM to 6:00AM, with Saturday’s covered on a rotating schedule. However they show up prior to their shift to check out the equipment to ensure everything is in working order and fully stocked (ambulances). Their evening starts with deciding to train or eat first, and the real decision is whether to pick up dinner or to cook. Let me tell you - these firefighters know how to cook! For training that night the focus was on working with our newly minted firefighters. After 6 months of training they basically start fresh learning from our more experienced members. They have to earn their “black hat” status. Another thing I learned is that 85-90% of what they do is train and clean. Each time a hose is pulled and used it then needs to be drained and racked. They’re pretty particular how everything goes back into place. That night they trained before AND after dinner well into the night. What I experienced was an extreme amount of camaraderie and bonding that speaks volumes about the cohesiveness of our crews. Truth be told you need to have an extreme amount of trust with the people who back you up on each and every call. There’s a good amount of good natured kidding, but the closeness of the crews makes me proud. Oh and did I mention that two of the firefighters were female? In the fire service only 4% of career firefighters are female, with a slightly higher percentage in the volunteer ranks. For the record, there is no difference in the training and expectations for males and females, either you can do it or you can’t. My night ended early and without getting to actually ride in the engine. Of course a call went out 5 minutes after I left. Maybe next time since it’s for sure I’ll be back!!

Volunteer Firefighters respond in many ways to help our community members when they are in need — fires, vehicle accidents, medical emergencies, hazardous situations, technical rescues, service calls and much more. Firefighter volunteers are often cross-trained as both Firefighters and Emergency Medical Responders (EMR) or Emergency Medical Technicians (EMT). Training is free and takes place in our stations or at the Loudoun County Fire and Rescue Training Center in Leesburg at convenient times for volunteers with varied schedules, including evening, weekend and summer classes. Serve your community, make lifetime memories, find friends, change your world.

We wanted to take a moment to thank the multitudes of our neighbors who supported us last Saturday for our Chicken BBQ dinner. It truly takes a village and we could not have been as efficient (yep we’ve worked out the long line issues) without the help of the many volunteers from the Loudoun Youth Group. See ya’ll next time!

Saturday nights our volunteer duty crews rotate coverage. They cook bigger meals, train, and prior to COVID restrictions family members were often part of the equation (we hope to get back to that soon!) This past Saturday Volunteer crews celebrated summer with a traditional seafood boil after a night of training, checking out equipment, and weekly firehouse chores. #avfrd #volunteerfirefighters #volunteerEMS #neighborshelpingneighbors #family

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.

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.
