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.
