We are happy that Knox is ok. This was a great team effort between Loudoun County Animal Services (LCAS) and Loudoun County Fire and Rescue personnel.

Loudoun County Fire and Rescue units Engine 611, Medic 615C and Rescue 635 all responded to this call. Medic 615C assisted with providing blankets to keep Knox and the owner warm during the extrication to prevent hypothermia due to the cold weather outside.

Engine 611 removed the step off of the tractor trailer, which allowed the owner and dog to step down to the ground for easier access to remove the metal from the paw. Rescue 635 utilized several tools to cut the step away from the paw. While LCAS worked with the dog’s owner to assist in comforting the dog.

This incident demonstrates great teamwork and a great outcome for Knox.

Please join us in giving a shout out to our responders for this call:

Cancer Prevention Efforts During Rehab

Fire scenes are full of cancer causing carcinogens. It is extremely important to perform gross decontamination post fire on scene to limit exposure to these carcinogens. Here is a video on some of the rehab measures we take on scene to prevent firefighter cancer.

LCFR Fire Marshal’s Office Makes Arrest in 2017 House Fire

On January 9, 2023, Darrell A. Segraves (28 years of age) was indicted by a Loudoun County Circuit Court Grand Jury for one felony count of arson of an occupied dwelling (§18.2-77). On November 4, 2017, occupants of a single-family dwelling in the 17,000 block of Tedler Circle in Round Hill, dialed 911 reporting an odor of gasoline. Loudoun County Fire and Rescue units arrived on scene and found remains of a fire and immediately requested the Fire Marshal’s Office to respond and investigate.

Fire Marshal investigators determined the fire was intentionally set and began processing the scene for evidence of the crime. While performing a canvass search and utilizing Loudoun’s accelerant detection canine, gasoline contaminated latex gloves with a cardboard matchbox were located, collected, and subsequently examined by the Commonwealth of Virginia Department of Forensic Science. At the time of evidence submission, no matching DNA was on file.

As new DNA enters the database, forensic staff can compare new samples against previously submitted records to check for matches using the new information. On September 16, 2022, investigators were notified by the Virginia Department of Forensic Science that DNA collected from the latex gloves matched Darrell Segraves. After obtaining a search warrant, a DNA sample was collected from Mr. Segraves and re-tested. The DNA samples were a match, confirming Mr. Segraves alleged involvement in setting the 2017 fire.

The Loudoun County Fire and Rescue Fire Marshal’s Office wishes to thank the Commonwealth of Virginia Department of Forensic Science, the City of Norfolk Sheriff’s Office Corrections Division, and the Office of the Norfolk Commonwealth’s Attorney for their efforts during this joint investigation to not only identify the suspect, but providing resources needed to assist in charging for this crime.
Mr. Segraves is currently being held at the Norfolk City, Virginia, Jail on an unrelated arson charge of burning an occupied dwelling.

Fighting firefighter cancer involves fighting all forms of cancer. Firefighter cancer studies provide a constant reminder that firefighters must take precautions to minimize unnecessary exposures during emergency and daily routine operations to include ultraviolet (UV) rays. People with an increased exposure to UV rays have an elevated risk of sunburn and skin damage, which may lead to skin cancer.

Sunscreen is an important way to limit exposure and possibly prevent skin cancer. We have placed sunblock stations in our fire houses to help prevent skin cancer in our firefighters through increased sunblock usage.

01/11/2023

The risk of Carbon Monoxide (CO) poisoning increases during winter months due to cold temperatures forcing home heating systems to run longer and more frequently. Often called the silent killer, CO is an invisible, odorless, colorless gas created when fuels (such as gasoline, wood, coal, natural gas, propane, oil, and methane) burn incompletely. In the home, fuel burning heating and cooking equipment when damaged or misused can be sources of CO. Other sources of CO include cars, generators, lawn mowers and grills.

CO alarms provide early warning of CO in your home. To help prevent CO poisoning, the Loudoun County Combined Fire and Rescue System (LC-CFRS) recommends installing CO alarms on every level of the home if your home has fuel-burning appliances or an attached garage. If you show symptoms of CO poisoning, immediately move to a fresh air location, and seek medical care. CO poisoning symptoms include headache, dizziness, weakness, nausea, vomiting, chest pain, and confusion.

Here are some important CO Alarm tips:
- CO alarms should be installed in a central location outside each sleeping area and on every level of the home.
- Choose a CO alarm that is listed by a qualified testing laboratory.
- Follow the manufacturer’s instructions for placement and mounting height.
- Test CO alarms at least once a month.
- Check for low batteries during your monthly test. If the battery is low, replace it.
- Replace CO Alarms according to the manufacturer’s instructions.
- If the CO alarm sounds, immediately move to a fresh air location, such as outdoors or by an open window or door. Call for help from the fresh air location and stay there until emergency personnel declare that it is safe to re-enter the home.

The LC-CFRS Smoke Alarm Program offers free home safety assessments to all residents. During the free home safety assessment, personnel will check smoke alarms and CO alarms for proper placement and operation. If your smoke alarms are broken or outdated, LC-CFRS will replace them with battery powered alarms at no cost and install additional alarms as necessary.

LC-CFRS recently received a Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) grant for a limited number of combination smoke and CO alarms. During the free home assessment, personnel will be able to install these combination smoke and CO alarms as needed while supplies last. If LC-CFRS personnel run out of the combination smoke and CO alarms, they can install smoke alarms where needed and provide homeowners with information on CO alarms for their home.

For more information about the Smoke Alarm Program or to schedule an appointment, call the hotline 703-737-8093 or visit www.loudoun.gov/smokealarms and complete the online form.

The health and safety of our members is extremely important. All of our new and replacement stations feature a zoned design floor plan in an effort to reduce a firefighter’s exposure to carcinogens at the station.

Hot Zone, shown in red, refers to areas in the station that are exposed to carcinogens and risk of contamination and exposure is highest.

Cold Zone, shown in green, refers to areas in the station where firefighters want to keep carcinogens and the risk of contamination out.

Transition Zone, shown in yellow, refers to the areas in the station where firefighters will move between the hot and cold zones.

The goals of the zoned station design is to contain contaminants to the hot zone, separate occupants in the cold zone from the contaminants, control and limit cross-contamination, and to enhance personal, station and equipment decontamination.

In addition to their full-time jobs, schooling, and family obligations, the graduates dedicated countless hours over the last six months to their training and have achieved Loudoun County, Commonwealth of Virginia, and National Certifications.

It is tradition for LC-CFRS instructors to designate one individual as the “top student” for each graduating class that exemplifies leadership, dedication, academic success, and the ability to motivate others. The top students recognized Thursday include Tyler Yudd for the Firefighter I-II class, Claire Davison for Summer EMT-B, Hana Al Shawi and Ed Jackson for their respective Fall EMT-B classes, and Adam Smith for the EMT-Paramedic class.

“This is a proud moment as we continue to grow our fire and rescue system,” stated System Chief Keith Johnson. “These fine individuals will make valuable contributions to our fire and rescue family and to the Loudoun County community.

Kids lemonade stand on the corner of Oakcrest Manor Dr and Tracy Ct. To benefit Backpack Buddies and First Responders! Please come out!
I want to shout out the folks at Loudoun County Fire and Rescue. My daughter had a second birthday today and daddy burnt the tacos 😣. You guys were SO fast to respond and upon hearing it was my daughter’s birthday gave the kiddos a truck tour and souvenir hats. So grateful to have you guys looking over our community 💕
This is awesome news. Thanks Loudoun EMS for having whole blood available for trauma patients.

Do you all offer any First Aid teaching for a group of Cub Scouts?
Saw an accident happen at the light right at the westbound rt 7 bypass; far left lane. A minivan plowed into the back of a pickup truck. Everyone ok?
A quick hello from the team at Reebok at the Premium Outlets in Leesburg. We appreciate you sacrifice to keeping our community safe. February 22-23 we are having a first responders appreciation event. Show you ID or badge to receive an additional 20% off.
On the road the past 2 mornings I have had a person with Maryland license plate number 0083 PFD silver Ford who has Loudoun County Virginia Fire Department on it that has been driving on 522 toward Wi******er, VA between 445am-500am who is passing on solid lines, speeds in excess of 65mph in a 55mph and 45 mph zone, and tailgating other motorists. He did this to me yesterday and even after several attempts of tapping my brakes because he was following me so close I could not see his headlights in my rear view mirror on a dual lane highway that he could have passed me on--I practically stopped on the road just to get him to go around just for us to end up at same stop light. You sir firefighter are the exact type of driver that causes the fatalities on the highway that I am sure you have seen in your job. You should be ashamed and I am making it my mission to ensure your chain of command is aware of your poor driving skills and possible deadly actions should you cause a collision.
I would like to give a shout out to the crew of Loudon County Fire and Rescue! This weekend while in route to prepare for my stepdaughter's wedding, her florist was in a car accident. The crew went above and beyond by making the flower delivery to the home venue. The flowers were beautiful, and we are beyond grateful for the help of the Loudon County Fire and Rescue for making sure that her day was truly special!
In lieu of flowers the Colby Family would greatly appreciate any financial donations, due to the sudden loss of their daughter Kelly 5 months ago, Buddy and Janet assuming guardianship of their granddaughter and now Janet and the family having to deal with the loss of husband Buddy. The Family would like to thank you in advance for any donations.
