Ashburn Volunteer Fire and Rescue Department’s Station 6 was recently included in Firehouse Magazine’s 2016 Station Design Awards as a notable in the Combination/Volunteer category. The 30,000 sq ft station was completed in 2016. The building includes 14 bedrooms, an exercise room, kitchen and living areas, meeting rooms and training facilities. Eight apparatus bays house Ashburn’s engines, trucks, ambulances and command vehicles. Five fire poles provide quick access from living and office quarters to the apparatus bay for a quick turnout when the tones drop. The energy efficient design includes 27 sun tubes (focused skylights) and state-of-the-art heating and cooling systems. Construction costs were approximately $8m, significantly cheaper than other recently built stations in our area.
