Tonight, AVFRD celebrated it's 70th year as a department. We had a hell of a turn out and would like to thank our banquet committee for knocking it out the park once again for putting on a great event.
Thanks to all members past and present that shared in tonight's memories.
Thank you to Sterling, Leesburg, and Arcola Fire and EMS for covering our stations and apparatus.
AVFRD placed into service 2 Ferrara Ignitor Pumpers December 24, 2014 (Engine 22) and January 10, 2015 (Engine 6) respectfully. The new line of engines drastically differ in design and appearance from our existing apparatus. The spec committee wanted to go back to a simplistic Engine Co. design that Ashburn was known for in the 1970's and 1980's
