Our thoughts and prayers are with our brothers to the East as they mourn the loss of one of their own.

We are brokenhearted to report the passing of our member, John Quade. John peacefully passed away on Sunday, December 1st 2019. John was approaching ten years in the department, with the last three on the operational side. He started his volunteer firefighting career in Ashland, VA when he was in high school and later became an Officer with The Arlington County Police Department, where he served for over 30 years. He remained a volunteer firefighter throughout his career as a police officer as he loved it so much.

After he retired and moved to Ashburn, he joined AVFRD as an admin member for over six years. Three years ago, he moved to the operational side and joined the Wednesday crew; John fit right in and loved hearing our stories, and we loved hearing his. John's role on the Fire Engine was "lay out man" and did a great job, every time.

John was loved by so many - his big smile was infectious and his character was second to none. John's wife, Nora, their daughter Ginny, and anyone who knew John miss him greatly.

FYI Please see safe tonight if you go out -

Earlier for Western Loudoun

'Potentially dangerous' severe weather event could bring damaging winds, isolated tornadoes on Halloween night
An intense line of storms is expected to barrel through the Washington region this evening, bringing a burst of torrential rain and strong winds, with a few tornadoes not out of the question. Storms are expected to reach the D.C. area after dark, between 7 and 11 p.m. from west to east.

For trick-or-treaters, the safest plan of action is to be home by 7 or 8 p.m., especially those who live west of Interstate 95, and have a safe place to seek shelter quickly, if needed. Stay with Capital Weather Gang for the latest.

Last evening Chief Maple and President Quin had the honor to attend the Volunteer Fire and EMS Graduation Ceremony at Cornerstone Chapel. Our company had nine members recognized for completing their training in fire or EMT.

For FF1/2 we had Cole Marsh and Alex McKoy as two of 18 graduates from the fire academy.

For EMT we had seven of our members complete that academically rigorous program in one of series of classes offered during the year. They are: Ryan Alexiou, Kelly Klimek, Evan McVey, Jeremy Morgan, Conor Spriggs, C.J. Tidmore and Kaitlin Tunder.

Special congratulations go to Evan McVey who was selected top student in his class!

Congratulations to everybody. Well done!

Missing from the attached picture are Kelly and Jeremy who were unable to attend the ceremony.

Our thoughts & prayers go out to our brother's and sister's within LCSO on this untimely loss.

Our thoughts & prayers go out to our brother's and sister's within LCSO on this untimely loss.

It is with a heavy heart and great sadness that we share the sudden passing of Loudoun County Deputy First Class Justin Payne.

Justin started his career with us in April 2005 when he was hired as a patrol deputy in the Field Operations Division. He was assigned to the School Resource Officer (SRO) Unit in 2008 and served as an SRO at Sterling Middle School. He was most recently the SRO at John Champe High School.

Justin understood the importance of an SRO, showing an interest in each student’s academics and extracurricular activities. He served as a mentor to many of them and we know he touched the lives of countless others, including his brothers and sisters here at the LCSO. He also loved woodworking and often created United States flags carved out of wood for his fellow employees.

Justin also served as a member of the LCSO SWAT Team and the Rapid Response Unit.

Rest in Peace. #2379
