As you may have noticed, our home at 61 Plaza Street NE is undergoing a very large and much needed transformation. First opened in 1998, the fire station was originally designed for a single fire engine. Today, we staff a fire engine, a ladder truck, and a heavy rescue with the help of Loudoun County Fire and Rescue. Over the next year, the renovation and expansion will provide the volunteer and career firefighters serving Leesburg a new kitchen and dining area, additional office space, a much needed training room, four additional bunk rooms, new restrooms and locker rooms, and a new exercise room. This is only possible thanks to the support of your monetary donations, a 2016 taxpayer approved bond referendum, the Loudoun County Board of Supervisors, the Loudoun County Administrator, the Town of Leesburg, and Loudoun County Fire and Rescue.
There will be a period of time that the fire station will be untenable. During that brief time, the fire engine and ladder truck will respond from our old fire station at 215 Loudoun Street SW. The heavy rescue will be temporarily housed at Moorefield Fire Station 23, located at 43495 Old Ryan Road in Ashburn. Leesburg citizens will receive the same quality emergency response that they have deserved since 1803. As always, we need the support of the public with monetary donations and welcome those interested in volunteering with us as firefighters or administrative members.
