Posted on September 10, 2020 at 9:59 AM by Shawn Zelman

Loudoun County is planning the construction of a new 18,500 square foot Philomont Fire and Rescue Station Replacement on Snickersville Turnpike in the Village of Philomont to replace the existing Philomont Volunteer Fire and Rescue Company #8 Station.

A community meeting hosted by Supervisor Tony Buffington will be held on Wednesday, September 30, 2020, at 6:30 p.m., at Woodgrove High School, 36811 Allder School Road, in Purcellville, VA. For those who can’t attend the meeting in person, a virtual option is available.

The Fire Station is planned to be located on a site of approximately seven acres owned by the Philomont Volunteer Fire Company. The facility is anticipated to include apparatus bays, bunkroom facilities, a training/break room, restrooms, showers, food preparation and dining areas, laundry and decontamination areas, supply storage, and a gear and hose drying area. It will also include a breathing apparatus air compressor room, a fitness room, offices, and a repair shop. 

A bond referendum will be placed on the November 2020 ballot. The project is estimated for completion in 2026.
