Philomont Fire and Rescue Station 

Project Overview

This project will construct a new 18,500-square-foot fire and rescue facility on Snickersville Turnpike in the Village of Philomont to replace the existing Philomont Volunteer Fire and Rescue Company #8 Station.

  • 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.
  • The project was approved as a part of the FY2017 Capital Improvement Program (CIP) budget and all subsequent years since. Members of the public provided input on this project in the following ways:
    • A public information meeting was held on September 30, 2020 at Woodgrove High School to discuss the future project. View the presentation (PDF) below. 
    • The project was a part of the November 2020 Bond Referendum. This was a referendum to determine how this project, along with multiple other public safety projects, was to be financed and not a vote on the project itself.
    • A public information meeting was held on September 9, 2021, at Woodgrove High School to discuss the feasibility study performed by the county.
    • County staff met with the residents of Philomont at the Philomont Community Center on September 29, 2021. View the recording (MP4) and presentation (PDF) below.
    • The findings of the feasibility study were presented at a Board of Supervisors meeting October 5, 2021.
    • An additional feasibility study is being conducted based on sketches submitted to the County by community members (referred to as Scheme 4 and 4A).  The study is currently under review by the team and will be released upon completion (spring 2023).
