This past Friday, we provided coverage at Independence High School, Ashburn, VA for their inaugural homecoming game against Rock Ridge HS.

A big thank you to the ten Arcola VFD members who came out this past weekend to support the 8th annual Jim Schatz Memorial Trail 10K. Murphy's law prevailed - we were well-prepared so no one needed our services. :)

All proceeds from this race go to benefit veterans through Boulder Crest Retreat for Military & Veteran Wellness and Pets for Vets. Our department has provided services and declined donations from this event every year since its inception as our way of giving back to those who have served our county. #thankyou #veterans

Our #volunteerfire crew has a fresh batch of probationary red hats ready to train on skills that will save others' lives while protecting their own. Fire Chief Montalvo takes the time to talk about the importance of PPE and how to properly don our gear.

On a recent Friday night, two school-aged boys stopped by the Brambleton Safety Center with their mom to hand-carry some money as a donation to the Arcola Volunteer Fire Department. A member of the volunteer ambulance crew met them at the door to greet them. After presenting a sealed envelope, which “thanked the Fire Department for their service to the community”, they explained the money was raised by the two young men by selling lemonade in the recent hot weather. As a thank you to these two for raising donation money, the ambulance crew gave them a quick tour of the apparatus floor. After thanking them again, the family went on their way.

At the following Board of Directors Meeting, it was disclosed that the two boys donated $100.00! The Arcola Volunteer Fire Department thanks this family once again for the much-appreciated donation and commends these young men for their fine example of community service! #service #ArcolaVFD #LemonadeStand

With utmost sorrow, we are to announce the sad passing of our friend and president, Jay J. Brown this morning at Inova Loudoun Hospital.

JJ, as he is fondly addressed by the Arcola VFD family, is the current President (since JAN 2016) of the Arcola Volunteer Fire Department and the former Deputy Chief of EMS Training for LCFR.

In addition to the countless hours he has put in helping keep our station running, Mr. Brown had many impressive accomplishments in Fire-Rescue, Emergency Medical Services, Emergency Management, and Program Management during his career that spanned over 45 years. He received two Virginia Governors Awards for transportation safety programs and named the Outstanding Emergency Medical Services Administrator for Northern Virginia in 2006.

His extensive experience with both fire and EMS, his connections with so many people in the industry locally and outside Loudoun, and his tireless work ethic even in a volunteer status, made him uniquely qualified to run our Department. He will be sorely missed, and cannot be replaced.

Please keep JJ's family in your thoughts and prayers.

July 10th, 2019 – Sterling VA
Loudoun residents can feel secure in knowing that the Arcola Volunteer Fire Department is keeping up with the growing needs of its community. Groundbreaking began July 8th on Arcola’s renovation of the old Company 9 building on Gum Springs Road. The project is scheduled to be completed next summer and will house additional equipment for improved service, as well as serve as training and educational space for the department and as a resource for the community.

The building to be renovated was the original station of the Arcola Volunteer Fire Department, housing the department from its inception until 2013 when it moved to its current location on Belmont Ridge Road.

Mike Gordon, Director-At-Large Arcola Volunteer Fire Department kicked off the event, which drew current and past members, reminiscing about the buildings past and how it will be utilized in the future. “It has been a long process, but all our hard work and collaboration has brought us to today,” said Gordon. “We look forward to this new facility, and how will allow us to further serve the community.”
LeMay Erickson Willcox Architects, who have worked with the Arcola Volunteer Fire Department over the past five years, across three different sites, was in attendance for the groundbreaking. “The building, which has undergone several additions over the years, will have a new exterior expression that ties the different additions together into one unified building expression. Also, as a part of the renovation and addition, the Annex creates handicap accessibility by providing a new building entrance with an elevator and wheelchair lift to navigate the second floor.” Said Matthew I. Fadel, AIA, LEED AP of LeMay Erickson Willcox Architects.

The renovation incorporates “Hot Zone” design strategies by organizing the gathering and administrative spaces together on the second floor, above the apparatus bay spaces. “ The Annex layout will be more efficient and serve the Volunteers well into the future.” Said Fadel. “We have been honored to work with the Arcola Volunteer Fire Department and are excited that the years of strong leadership from the Volunteers have allowed them to turn their vision into reality, with construction now underway.”

Founded in 1957, Arcola Volunteer Fire Department is a volunteer Fire & Rescue company in Southeastern Loudoun County, Virginia. Part of a combined system, Arcola VFD works with Loudoun County Fire & Rescue to provide prompt, professional and compassionate response to citizens and visitors fire and medical emergencies.
