On March 27, 2023, the Loudoun County Combined Fire and Rescue System (LC-CFRS) hosted its 6th Annual Awards and Recognition Ceremony. We are very proud to share that three of our very own Sterling Volunteer Fire Company members were recognized.
Joelynn "Wai" Cadang was awarded the Recruitment and Retention Award. This award is sponsored by the Loudoun County Recruitment and Retention Committee. It recognizes members of the LC-CFRS who have demonstrated leadership at multi-agencies or County-wide levels and whose impact greatly influenced newer members of the system.
Jeff Brown was awarded the Firefighter of the Year Award. This award honors a uniformed member of the system who exemplifies outstanding performance in the day-to-day execution of their duties and their outstanding service and dedication, which are keeping with the highest traditions of the fire and rescue system.
John Bischoff III was awarded his 25 years Length of Service Award.

Springtime is usually accompanied by a significant increase in the number of fires that occur in landscaping mulch. These fires are particularly dangerous due to their proximity to homes and structures. The fire starts in the landscaping mulch, spreads into the shrubbery and then to the home or building. Most are started by people, often via improper disposal of smoking materials, so most can be prevented. However, mulch can spontaneously combust under the proper conditions. If you see anything smoking in a landscaped bed put it out if you can and call 911. If the burning material is not thoroughly wet or removed, it may re-ignite.
