We wanted to share a followup to a story we had previously shared, of Fairfax County Fire and Rescue Department firefighter Loren Jewell's effort to pay it forward by running the Bigfoot 200 ultra-marathon to raise money for kids fighting cancer, a battle she faced herself as a teenager. Congrats to FF Jewell for her support to help kids fight this horrible disease, her courageous effort, for the funds raised, and to her friends, family, and colleagues for their support! And nice job welcoming her home! ... See MoreSee Less

Happy Birthday SVFC!

On August 16, 1966, Engine Company 11 was chartered in Sterling Park. The original engine (a 1950s American LaFrance, purchased fully equipped for $3500) was housed in the barn, formerly part of the Edwards Dairy Farm, on W Holly Ave. Initially an all-volunteer company with one station and soon running multiple engines, Sterling expanded to a second station, becoming the first multi-station company in Loudoun. As demand for service grew Sterling led the way to what is now Loudoun County Fire Rescue by hiring the first paid firefighter in the county. Today, over 150 volunteers spend hundreds of hours each week maintaining and staffing two engines and one ladder truck alongside our Loudoun County Fire and Rescue partners. Together we honor those who have gone before us by continuing to offer the highest quality fire protection to the citizens, businesses, and visitors to Sterling.

The SVFC extend our thoughts to the family and friends of Deputy Payne, and the Loudoun County Sheriff's Office.It is with a heavy heart and great sadness that we share the sudden passing of Loudoun County Deputy First Class Justin Payne.

Justin started his career with us in April 2005 when he was hired as a patrol deputy in the Field Operations Division. He was assigned to the School Resource Officer (SRO) Unit in 2008 and served as an SRO at Sterling Middle School. He was most recently the SRO at John Champe High School.

Justin understood the importance of an SRO, showing an interest in each student’s academics and extracurricular activities. He served as a mentor to many of them and we know he touched the lives of countless others, including his brothers and sisters here at the LCSO. He also loved woodworking and often created United States flags carved out of wood for his fellow employees.

Justin also served as a member of the LCSO SWAT Team and the Rapid Response Unit.

Rest in Peace. #2379
