Loudoun County Volunteer Rescue Squad

Loudoun County Volunteer Rescue Squad The Loudoun County Volunteer Rescue Squad provides 9-1-1 Emergency Services to the town of Leesburg, Va., and the surrounding area. Founded in 1952.
(22)

In 1952, 12 community members started the first rescue squad in Loudoun County. With only a donated Ford Ranch Wagon and basic first aid training, these volunteers responded to auto accidents and other requests for medical assistance. Since then, the technologies, training, and challenges of our service have changed greatly. What has not changed, however, is our members’ absolute commitment to the people we serve and our dedication to a simple motto – “When you need us… We are there.” Today the Loudoun County Volunteer Rescue Squad has about 50 operational members, a dozen apparatus of various types, and a multi-million dollar facility on Catoctin Circle in Leesburg, Virginia. Working alongside our career colleagues from the Loudoun County Department of Fire and Rescue, our volunteer members contribute tens of thousands of hours a year running calls, training, doing public service, fundraising, and all the other functions necessary to operate a modern day rescue squad. Every hour of every day, we are prepared to provide not only basic medical care and emergency transport, but also advanced life support professionals, water rescue, and a wide variety of technical rescue capabilities to the people of Leesburg and the surrounding area. Our Mission: The Loudoun County Volunteer Rescue Squad (LCVRS) is proud to serve Loudoun County with professional, award-winning delivery of emergency medical services. We are committed to provide timely, high quality, cost efficient service to all our citizens with our talented, professional staff. With the community's support, LCVRS will continue to offer innovative, technologically advanced solutions to meet and exceed the needs of our neighbors well into the new millennium.

LCVRS Says Goodbye to Longstanding and Loved Member

J.B. Anderson was active with fire and rescue since 1966, and in that time he touched countless lives. He was a leader, a teacher, a role model and an all-around good soul. He made a positive impact on the world around him, and today we are saying goodbye to him with a heavy heart.

Please see our obituary for J.B. here:

Please feel free to add your remembrances of J.B. We know there are countless great stories about him out there!

We will miss you, J.B.

It is with heavy hearts that the officers and members of the Loudoun County Volunteer Rescue Squad must report the death of life member JB Anderson. JB served our community in many ways over the years even as he battled cancer courageously. He will be greatly missed.

Some additional information from his family:

💙 After a courageous almost-5-year battle with stage 4 colon cancer, James Benton Anderson II aka J.B., Chief, Dad passed away last night (Friday, May 29, 2020) just before midnight (although it was officially Saturday morning when the hospice nurse came to declare TOD).

🙌🏼 Dad had an amazing day Thursday, enjoying fresh air on the porch for hours while listening to his favorite Oldies music 🎶 , and watching a beautiful sunset. 🌅 Friday morning he even asked to look out the window, so we turned his bed so he could more easily look outside all day long. 🚗 🚙 🚶🏻‍♀️ 🐕 🚶 He was up and speaking and eating on Friday before his oxygen levels dropped incredibly low and continued to drop.

🛏 J.B. passed away peacefully with his loving wife, his youngest son Brian, and his sister-in-law Donna here by his side before his oldest son Jamie and daughter Amanda made it to the house. It was quick and he did not seem to be in any pain.

👤 Nothing else is figured out yet, but we will let everyone know when they are. In these unprecedented times, there are restrictions for viewings and services and we are working to honor Dad’s wishes as best as possible.

🗓 Once we have a time and date for funeral services, we will let everyone know. We may wait a couple weeks to see if COVID-19 restrictions change to allow more people at once.

🙏🏼 Again, we thank you all for the positive thoughts, prayers, well wishes, phone calls, e-mails, cards, food, visits, comments - absolutely everything.

Something a bit light lighthearted to start off the week.

Seriously though remember to wear your mask and wash your hands. It helps to protect all of us!

LCSO Offers Prescription Pick-Up and Delivery for Vulnerable Residents

LCSO Announces Prescription Pick-Up & Delivery Service for Residents Vulnerable to Coronavirus (COVID-19)

Loudoun County Sheriff Mike Chapman announced today a prescription pick-up and delivery assistance program for the county’s senior residents and those who are more vulnerable to Coronavirus (COVID-19).

Members of the Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office (LCSO), in coordination with the resident, or their family, as well as local pharmacies, will pick-up prescription medications from Loudoun pharmacies and deliver the items to private residences in the county.

To participate residents must contact the LCSO at 703-777-1021 to request this service. Residents may call 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Deliveries will be made during normal business hours.

Members of the Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office who deliver the medication will wear a sheriff’s office uniform, will utilize personal protective equipment, and will maintain social distancing based on CDC guidance.

“We want to ensure residents who are physically unable to get to their pharmacy and are in critical need of their medications can receive their prescriptions in a safe manner,” said Sheriff Chapman.

The service requires the resident to pre-pay for the prescription and confirm their pharmacy allows third-party pick-up for the medication. For health considerations, the LCSO cannot deliver to assisted living communities, care facilities, senior centers, or group homes.

The service will be provided through the duration of Virginia Governor Ralph Northam’s Executive Order which is effective until 11:59 p.m., Wednesday, June 10, 2020.
