What could be more satisfying and rewarding than helping others in their moment of need? As EMT”s, we have an opportunity to help others in extremely difficult times, often when they are very ill or severely injured. We train to be our best on the day that may be their worst. If you are looking for a way to give back to the community and help others who are truly in need, this is it.\r\n\r\nThe Ashburn Volunteer Fire and Rescue Department (AVFRD) provides pre-hospital Emergency Medical Services (EMS) to one of the most populated areas of Loudoun County. Our five ambulances cover Ashburn, Landsdowne, Broadlands, Brambleton and other nearby areas, composed of dense subdivisions, commercial areas, data centers, major commuting roads and parks. We also service the neighboring communities and occasionally provide mutual aid services to Fairfax County.\r\n\r\nWe transport our patients to the closest appropriate medical facility, often to one of the two closest hospitals: Inova Loudoun Hospital Center or Inova Ashburn Healthplex. When our patients require specialty care such as advanced trauma services we often utilize medevac helicopters such as AirCare. These flight services rapidly transport patients to one of our nearest Level 1 Trauma Centers; either INOVA Fairfax Hospital or MedStar Trauma Services at The Washington Hospital Center.
