This project will design and construct the Loudoun County Fire and Rescue Station 12, a replacement for the current Lovettsville Fire and Rescue Station. The replacement station will be located adjacent to the existing station.
This project provides funding to design and construct an approximately 19,200-square-foot fire station to replace the Lovettsville Fire and Rescue Company 12 Station.
In 2005, a comprehensive engineering report of the county's fire-rescue facilities was completed to evaluate existing conditions and programmatic shortages of current facilities. Recommendations for facility improvements were provided to ensure the operational success of the County’s Fire and Rescue System. Lovettsville Fire and Rescue Station 12 was among the properties evaluated and found to be in need of facility expansion and comprehensive renovation. The current building was erected in 1974 and has had two subsequent additions.
Once constructed, the new station will be used by Lovettsville Volunteer Fire and Rescue Company and career personnel. The Lovettsville Rescue Squad received its charter in 1966. In 1967, a fire company was begun, and combined with the rescue squad to form one company in 1968.
