Ashburn, Virginia is located in Loudoun County thirty miles northwest of Washington D.C. and is part of the Washington Metropolitan area. Numerous subdivisions, businesses, and busy roadways provide ample fire and rescue emergency calls (4,500 calls a year) for the members of the Ashburn Volunteer Fire and Rescue Department (AVFRD).
AVFRD operates from two stations. Organized in 1944, Station 6 is located in “old town” Ashburn and houses three engines, two ladder trucks, three ambulances, and a variety of support vehicles. Over the years, Loudoun County has experienced tremendous growth. To keep up with this growth, AVFRD opened Station 22 in the Lansdowne area which houses two engines and two ambulances. AVFRD members are well trained and ready to respond at a moment’s notice to the 4,500 annual emergency calls AVFRD receives.
The AVFRD apparatus fleet consists of a variety of trucks built by Ferrara Fire Apparatus. In late 2014, the volunteers at AVFRD took delivery of two Ferrara Ignitor fire trucks and assigned them to Engine 606 (“War Wagon”) in Ashburn and Engine 622 (“Rt. 7 Express”) at the Lansdowne station. These new Ferrara engines came with some unique characteristics when compared to the other trucks in the fleet. The new engines were designed and built as “city engines”, better equipped to handle a busy area. In addition, the new Ferrara’s were painted in a unique and striking black over yellow, the first apparatus of the AVFRD fleet to be painted in the new colors.
