Loudoun First Responders Graduate Fire and Rescue Training

Congrats 7-20-23 NF

The Loudoun County Combined Fire and Rescue System (LC-CFRS) is honored to announce the graduation of 72 first responders who successfully completed various levels of fire and rescue training. 

On Thursday, July 20, 2023, the graduates were joined by friends and family, along with members of LC-CFRS leadership, Loudoun County Administration and the Loudoun County Board of Supervisors at a ceremony recognizing these individuals who have committed to honorably serve their communities. Clerk of the Circuit Court Gary Clemens was on hand to officially swear in the most recent graduates to the Loudoun County Combined Fire and Rescue System. Deputy Chief of Training Nicole Pickrell emceed the event and introduced speakers to include Loudoun County Board of Supervisors Chair Phyllis Randall, Supervisor Michael Turner, and Assistant Chief Travis Preau.    

27 of the students completed the Emergency Medical Technician-Basic (EMT-B) course, 17 students completed the Firefighter I-II course, and 28 graduated the Advanced Emergency Medical Technician (EMT-A) program. In addition to their full-time jobs, schooling, and family obligations, the graduates dedicated countless hours over the last six months to their training and have achieved Loudoun County, Commonwealth of Virginia, and National Certifications.

It is tradition for LC-CFRS instructors to designate one individual as the “top student” for each graduating class that exemplifies leadership, dedication, academic success, and the ability to motivate others. The top students recognized Thursday include Evelyn Allen for Firefighter I-II class, Andrew McKenna for Fall AEMT – Nighttime, Angelique Cadang for Fall AEMT – Daytime, Forrest Lee for Spring AEMT, and John Larregui for the Spring EMT-B class. 

“This is a proud moment as we grow and mature our fire and rescue system,” stated System Chief Keith Johnson. “These fine individuals will make valuable contributions to our fire and rescue family and to the Loudoun County community. Thank you for your commitment, courage, and willingness to serve.” 

Welcome Graduates!
