Many things look different for SVFC and the rest of the Loudoun County Combined Fire Rescue System these days, but training never stops. Today students of the ongoing Driver/Pump Operator class learning how to operate the onboard pump to deliver water on fire calls, focusing on drafting (getting water from a static source rather than from a hydrant). The multi-week course starts with classroom sessions covering the theory and math involved, moves through practical exercises, and will culminate in a written and practical test. Successful students will bring their knowledge back to their agencies and be eligible for promotion from Firefighter to Technician (driver). ... See MoreSee Less

Please see the attached post for details about changes to the Loudoun County Combined Fire Rescue System operations. Rest assured that both county personnel and the Sterling volunteers are still here to serve you and do our best to keep you and your loved ones safe. All public events, gatherings in our station, etc. have been suspended until further notice.🚨Please read and share the following safety and social distancing measures that have been enacted for the Loudoun County Combined Fire and Rescue System. Some items below affect upcoming events, inspections and public education opportunities.🚨

As our region continues to deal with the spread of COVID-19, firefighters, emergency medical professionals and 9-1-1 dispatchers within the Loudoun County Combined Fire and Rescue System (LC-CFRS) remain fully staffed and ready to answer your call. Emergency response will not change and there have been no reductions in service. Call or text 9-1-1 if you are having an emergency!

In order to protect our first responders, essential employees and citizens from additional risk of exposure to COVID-19, LC-CFRS has instituted several operational practices as well as social distancing sanctions such as:

✅ LC-CFRS personnel are being actively monitored for signs and symptoms of illness before each shift. Any demonstrating flu-like symptoms will not be allowed to remain in the station/worksite or respond to incidents.

✅ Our first responders are using enhanced personal protective equipment and decontamination procedures on emergency incidents and at worksites such as:
▪️Maintaining six feet of distance from patients upon arrival and for our initial assessment, when possible.
▪️Using personal protective equipment such as masks, goggles, gloves and gowns to limit exposures.
▪️Placing masks on patients, when possible.
▪️LC-CFRS members are systematically disinfecting exposed surfaces, high touch points, and any equipment in our stations and on emergency apparatus.

✅ Fire stations will be closed to the public and any non-essential personnel.
▪️This does not apply to any person suffering a medical emergency.
▪️Food donations from the public will not be accepted at LC-CFRS stations and worksites. Although the kindness and generosity of our residents is appreciated, the safety of our first responders is paramount.

✅ Public events scheduled at any LC-CFRS Stations or with LC-CFRS personnel have been postponed or cancelled until further notice. LC-CFRS staff will not be participating in school/daycare visits, fire station tours, birthday parties, “touch a truck” type events, fundraising or other community outreach events.

✅ Loudoun County Fire Marshal inspection activities may be re-scheduled or postponed. For information, please call 703-737-8600 during regular business hours.

✅ Fire and life safety remain critical considerations especially as we are spending more time in our homes.
▪️Visit www.loudoun.gov/fireprevention for information on safety measures such as smoke alarms, home escape planning and fire prevention. Loudoun County residents may still call 703-737-8093, email us or visit www.loudoun.gov/smokealarms to request assistance with smoke alarms.

Remember! Turn the clocks forward one hour tonight! Change your smoke and CO alarm batteries today! Go to bed early!This Weekend We “Spring Forward”, Change Your Clocks & Check Your Smoke Alarm Batteries!

Sunday, March 8th, 2020 we “spring forward” and set our clocks ahead one hour in observance of daylight saving time. The Loudoun County Combined Fire and Rescue System asks that you also check the batteries in your smoke alarms, carbon monoxide (CO) alarms and practice your home escape plan.

Smoke alarms are on duty, twenty-four hours a day, scanning the air for fire and smoke, always ready to alert your family to a fire. “It’s critical that these life-saving devices are checked and tested frequently to ensure they’re working properly,” said Chief Linda Hale of the Loudoun County Fire Marshal’s Office. “We recommend that smoke alarms are placed in each bedroom, outside sleeping areas and on every level of the home. CO alarms should also be installed on each level and in hallways outside of sleeping areas. Early warning can provide the lifesaving seconds you may need to escape!”

Remember, smoke alarms must be maintained! A smoke alarm with a dead or missing battery is the same as having no smoke alarm at all. To keep smoke and CO alarms in optimal condition:

• Test smoke and CO alarms monthly.
• Clean away any dust or debris from the alarm.
• Replace batteries according to manufacturer’s recommendations (alkaline versus 10 year lithium).
• Replace all smoke alarms after 10 years OR if the alarm does not respond properly when tested.

The Loudoun County Combined Fire and Rescue System’s Smoke Alarm Program offers free home safety inspections to all residents. If your smoke alarms are broken or outdated we will replace them with battery powered alarms at no cost and install additional alarms as necessary. For more information or to schedule an appointment, call the smoke alarm hotline 703-737-8093 or visit www.loudoun.gov/smokealarms.

Last but certainly not least, every household needs a home escape plan! As a household, identify two possible exits routes for each room and designate a safe meeting place outside. Try this easy home escape planning tool from the National Fire Protection Association! For more information on fire prevention and life safety resources in Loudoun County, please visit www.loudoun.gov/firemarshal or call 571-258-3222.
