Motor Vehicle Accident for Friday Crew

Last Friday around 10:30pm Engine 611 was dispatched for a vehicle accident with entrapment in the vicinity of Sterling Blvd and Shaw Rd. Units from Sterling and Loudoun were also responding. Engine 611 arrived to find a vehicle that had left the roadway, struck a utility box, and traveled onward approximately 50 yards off the roadway. Occupants were successfully extricated and EMS personnel continued treatment. The scene was turned over to Loudoun and the traffic light--which was without power--was repaired by utility crews the next day.

This fire in Aldie is another reminder of the importance of knowing about mulch fire hazards. There have been a number of mulch fires in the Sterling area in the past 4-6 weeks...those that could have led to a fire like this have so far been caught early, luckily. Please make sure you know about the important safety precautions for mulch. Stay safe Sterling!Tuesday's fire in Aldie does $1.3M damages, displaces 4 and prompts warning from #Loudoun Fire Marshal’s to use caution and follow important safety precautions when using landscaping #mulch.

One time I was at the gas station and I saw a small mulch fire that had started from a cigarette. I ran inside and got water to put it out.

House Fire for Monday Crew

On Monday evening, the volunteers on Engine 611, Engine 618, and Truck 618 were alerted for a townhouse fire in Sterling Park. Also dispatched were Ambulance 635 from Sterling Volunteer Rescue Squad, Battalion Chief 601, Safety Officer 601, and EMS Supervisor 601 from Loudoun County Fire and Rescue, and Engines 404 and 439, Truck 436, Rescue 439, and Battalion Chief 401 from Fairfax County Fire and Rescue Department. Captain 611 was off duty but in the area and arrived first, confirming a working fire and requesting a Level 1 Rapid Intervention Team (RIT), adding Engine 303 from National Capitol Region Airports Professional Firefighters, Tiller 606 from Ashburn Volunteer Fire Rescue Department - AVFRD, and DUTY 618. Engine 606 added on to the call, as well. Engine 404 was the first unit to arrive and began an immediate fire attack on the first floor, followed by Engine 439 on the second. Engine 618 and Truck 436 went to the neighboring apartments to make sure that the fire hadn’t spread. Engine 606 had a backup line in place and Engine 611 assumed RIT Group Leader. Rescue 439 and Truck 618’s searched the interior to confirm that all occupants were out, secured inside utilities, and assisted with fire attack. The fire was quickly brought under control and there were no injuries. Canteen 611 responded to the call, and provided drinks and snacks. REHAB 623 responded for fire ground rehab support in conjunction with EMS personnel.

Earlier this year the Conicville lost their front line engine in an accident. Unable to afford a replacement they began looking for alternatives. Last week the SVFC was able to donate Engine 611B to them. At over 15 years old it's unable to keep up with the pace of operations in Sterling, but it should be able to have a long 2nd career serving in the Shenandoah Valley. ... See MoreSee Less

Thank you so very much. I was the one in the officers seat when we wrecked our engine. Being thankful I am alive but deep down broke my heart the engine was totaled and our department would suffer. The great Sterling Volunteers made us a great donation. I can’t thank you enough.

Way to go!! SVFD looking out for everyone.

That’s cool.

Well done Sterling! Proud of you.

Awesome!

Well done brothers,
