On Thursday, November 16, 2023, officials from the Loudoun County Combined Fire and Rescue System, Loudoun County Government, the Loudoun County Department of Transportation and Capitol Infrastructure (DTCI) and the Loudoun County Board of Supervisors broke ground on a new fire and rescue station that will serve the residents of Aldie and the Route 50 corridor.
The new 23,000 square foot facility will replace the existing Aldie Fire and Rescue Station and provide an updated, accessible facility for Loudoun County Fire and Rescue personnel that staff the station along with the Aldie Volunteer Fire Department. The facility will include apparatus bays, bunkroom facilities, a training room, a break room, restrooms and showers, food preparation and dining areas, laundry and decontamination areas, supply storage, a gear and hose drying area, a breathing apparatus air compressor room, a fitness room, offices, and a repair shop. Additionally, the updated technology and design of the building will provide for much needed occupational cancer protections.
When someone calls 911 for a fire or a cardiac arrest, we have only minutes to ensure enough fire and rescue personnel and equipment arrive at the scene to get water on the fire or reach the patient to provide lifesaving emergency care, said System Chief Keith Johnson. “In addition to being a modern and safe facility for our firefighters, the location of the new fire station will facilitate the quick response times needed to protect Aldie and the surrounding community.”
