About Us

Mission Statement

The Ashburn Volunteer Fire and Rescue Department (AVFRD) is committed to protecting the lives and property of Ashburn and Loudoun County residents and visitors by providing the best possible fire, rescue, emergency and medical response services.  We pledge to perform our duty with courage and dedication.  We also strive to be active in our community and proactive with public education and prevention campaigns.

Who We Are

AVFRD has been serving the community since 1944.  Currently, AVFRD has approximately 200 active members.  We are your neighbors, friends, and co-workers; men and women; married and single.  We go to school or have full-time day jobs in a wide range of occupations.  But we share one professional goal – to be there when you need us.  Neighbors Helping Neighbors.

One Department, Two Stations

AVFRD volunteers respond to calls from Station 6 in Ashburn and Station 22 in Lansdowne.  Like most fire-rescue companies in Loudoun County, AVFRD is part of a combination volunteer and career system.  Volunteers are on duty at both stations between 6 p.m. and 6 a.m. to staff a total of three fire engines and two ambulances each night.  Loudoun County Fire-Rescue career personnel staff both stations between the hours of 6 a.m. and 6 p.m. and Station 6 also houses a 24-hour career Medi.

What We Do

Whether it’s a medical emergency, a car accident or a house fire, AVFRD answers your calls for help.  Through continuous education and training, we’re prepared when you need us.  We work to educate the public on fire and accident prevention.   We host several community activities – pancake breakfasts, Open Houses and our annual Santa Parade – as well as numerous fundraising events.  We also participate in and provide stand-by services at various community activities such as sporting events, races, parades, fairs, concerts and fireworks displays.
