The Loudoun County Combined Fire Rescue System lost a great leader yesterday. Our condolences to the Brown family, Arcola Volunteer Fire Department, and the community.

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.

From birth, identical twin brothers Michael and David Kloosterboer have done everything together. From finishing each other’s thoughts to constantly being mistaken for the ‘other one’. But watching the moments when Loudoun’s Fire-Rescue volunteers brought aid to their Grandpa changed this dynamic duo.

Feeling the desire to give back, David (right) joined Ashburn Volunteer Fire-Rescue as a new firefighter in training. Michael (left) followed soon after. Not just for the calling, but to ensure his likeness didn’t have all the fun alone.

The challenge of work and fire school is a daunting season in life, but make no mistake. They say being there in those critical moments for another family makes this commitment ‘absolutely worth it’.

If you see the Kloosterboer brothers, let them tell you why being a volunteer member of Loudoun County Fire-Rescue makes these Red Hats smile. We’re sure Grandpa is proud of his identical heroes.

Andrew King remembers his dad’s life long legacy of community volunteerism. It’s why this computer scientist by day decided to continue that service in his honor.

Currently in Firefighter 1 and 2 training, he joined Ashburn Volunteer Fire Rescue. All with the mission of giving back to his community.

Many aspects of firefighting can be more challenging at first. There's even a healthy bit of fear in wearing 75 pounds of gear and oxygen.

But now he says, ‘I know we can do anything that we put our whole effort into, especially with such an amazing group of people that consistently lift one another up so we all get better.’

If you see Andrew, let him tell you why serving in the volunteer fire service carries a legacy that will never fade.

You know the moment...

Only a few minutes ago the sun was shining. But now dark clouds abound and a storm unexpected is raging all around.

Countless times a day in Loudoun County, storms like these can take the shape of accidents, injuries and medical conditions. In the divide between life and death, where first responders are the difference in the golden hour.

Be the one ready for any storm as a volunteer EMS provider with Loudoun County Volunteer Fire Rescue. Be there for your community to push back the wind and rain when it matters.

Comprehensive training is free, and it's not for the faint of heart. But it's the kind of commitment that one day will bring the calm in the worst of storms.

Margaret Leonard knows the value of teamwork.

As a professional Rugby player in years past, she joined the volunteer fire service looking to continue that bond. This time with a greater purpose, serving with Lovettesville Volunteer Fire Rescue.

Currently in Firefighter 1 and 2 training, she recalls the first time she provided aide on a CPR call. ‘I was amazed at cadence of the medics, how in tune and professional they all were’. Today, that’s the definition of team for her.

If you’re a Rugby fan, let Margaret tell you what’s like to run a real Blitz Defense as a Firefighter. She can tackle any challenge now.

You see the lights, and hear the sirens.

Men and women who jump into action right in front you. Their teamwork is as precise as any championship team. Their challenge is never victorious.

Purpose and personal satisfaction? It's theirs to keep.

It's easy to think that somehow they are the 'chosen ones' while you wonder what's like to extract a life. But the truth is they are just like you.

Accountants, teachers and stay-at-home mothers. Drivers, painters and marketers. Young students and retired military.

People from all walks of life are finding their inner hero by volunteering with the Loudoun County Combined Fire-Rescue System. Free training and new meaning awaits.

Meet Kathleen Leary, optometrist and Loudoun County Volunteer EMT.

Meet Thomas Arroyo, veteran, federal law enforcement recruit, and Loudoun County Volunteer Firefighter. After his military discharge Thomas was left with an empty feeling and was longing for an opportunity to be part of something bigger than himself again. Thomas found that opportunity as a volunteer at his local fire station. Thomas’ advice for our youth in High School getting ready to step out into the world: “Before you exploit all of what America has to offer you, at the bare minimum you should serve your community. You can pay for an education all you want, but you will not learn comradery, having an esprit de corps, and most importantly in what doing something that's bigger than one’s self feels like.” Join Thomas and see what he means.
