On a year round basis, open burning is always prohibited in the town limits of Lovettsville, Middleburg, Purcellville, Round Hill, and subdivisions ("urban or built up areas") throughout the County and in the Town of Leesburg. Similarly, open burning is prohibited countywide (towns included) during the period of May 1 through September 30 of each year.
Would you like to make a real difference in your town? Membership with Lovettsville Volunteer Fire and Rescue Company is a great way to contribute.
We will provide the training, the equipment, and support to help you become a contributing member of a vital part of our town's support structure. All you need to have is the time and motivation, and in return you'll gain the satisfaction of knowing you've helped your neighbors at their most difficult times.
As Lovettsville grows, so will our call volumes and our need for more volunteers. Both Operational members (Fire Fighters and EMTs) and Administrative staff are equally important in ensuring we can respond when we are needed most.
Volunteer Firefighters respond in many ways to help our community members when they are in need — fires, vehicle accidents, medical emergencies, hazardous situations, technical rescues, service calls and much more. Training is free and takes place in-station or at the Loudoun County Fire and Rescue Training Center in Leesburg with varied schedules, including evening, weekend and summer classes.
Do you enjoy helping people, willing to step in when others have medical emergencies, or considering a career in medicine? Becoming a volunteer EMS provider is for you! We’ll train you in CPR and provide training to become an Emergency Medical Technician. EMT training is provided free with classes held in-station or at the Loudoun County Fire and Rescue Training Center in Leesburg. You can even enhance your skills by becoming a volunteer Paramedic.
Want to be part of the action, but not interested in running into burning buildings or riding on an ambulance? Our Administrative Members provide administrative and fund-raising support for the operation and the business of our department. From accounting, computer support, public relations, marketing, maintenance, IT, community education and administrative functions – there’s plenty to do behind the scenes. Anyone who does not have the desire to participate directly in operational services, or those who cannot meet the physical demands for serving as a Firefighter or EMT are encouraged to bring their unique skills to the community as an Administrative Member of LVFR.
