The Loudoun County Combined Fire and Rescue System (LC-CFRS) is honored to announce the graduation of 81 personnel who successfully completed various levels of fire and rescue training. Though the official graduation ceremony, scheduled for March 23, 2020, has been cancelled, it is important to recognize and praise the accomplishments of these men and women who have made the commitment to serve their communities.  

Of the 81 graduates, 29 students completed the Emergency Medical Technician (EMT) course, 11 completed Advanced Emergency Medical Technician (A-EMT), and 41 students completed Firefighter I-II. In addition to their full-time jobs, schooling, and family obligations, each of the graduates spent countless hours over the last six months training to achieve Loudoun County, Virginia State and National Certifications in their respective programs.

Course instructors for each class chose one individual to be recognized as the ‘top student’. The ‘top student’ is chosen for their ability to lead and motivate their classmates, their tremendous level of dedication, as well their academic performance. The ‘top students’ being recognized in each of the graduating courses are as follows:

Emergency Medical Technician - Dan Doherty - Ashburn Volunteer Fire-Rescue Company

Advanced Emergency Medical Technician - Lillybeth Seng - Purcellville Volunteer Rescue Squad
