The Loudoun County Combined Fire and Rescue System is pleased to announce that the newly constructed Sterling Park Public Safety Center will officially open for operations at 6:00 p.m. on October 11, 2023.
The Sterling Park Safety Center is located at 104 Commerce Street in Sterling, Virginia, 20164, and replaces the original 8,800 sq. foot fire and rescue station that was built in 1970. The Sterling Park Safety Center will be the home of staff and assets from the Sterling Volunteer Fire Company, Sterling Volunteer Rescue Squad, and Loudoun County Fire and Rescue. The contact number for the station is 571-258-3711, however always call 911 in an emergency.
The new station features large apparatus bays, bunkroom facilities, kitchen and dining areas, decontamination and laundry facilities, a fitness center, office and conference workspaces and repair shop space. More information about the Sterling Park Safety Center can be found on the official Loudoun County Transportation & Capital Infrastructure project page.
“We are extremely excited to be operating out of this new facility. Not only is the building more efficient in layout and amenities, but it will surely provide health and safety protections for our firefighters that these older buildings were lacking,” stated Chief of the Loudoun County Combined Fire and Rescue System, Keith Johnson.
Details regarding an official Grand Opening Ceremony for the Sterling Park Safety Center are forthcoming.

Interior finish work is nearing completion at the new Sterling Park Safety Center in Sterling, Va. Crews have completed installing kitchen and bath countertops, decorative stair railing, and epoxy paint flooring. All permanent utilities have been established. Crews have also completed the concrete apron work at the apparatus bay. When completed, the Sterling Volunteer Fire and Rescue Companies will use the new 22,000 square foot facility to provide services for the Sterling community.
This project is in the construction phase, currently estimated for completion in spring 2023. During construction, the station is being run out of a temporary facility at the same location. When construction is substantially complete, the facility will be turned over to the Sterling Volunteer Fire & Rescue Companies for operation. More information about Loudoun County Capital Projects and phases is provided at loudoun.gov/capitalprojects.
The new Fire and Rescue facility will replace the previous 8,772-square-foot building on this site dating from 1970 and provide more storage and parking. The one-acre property will also expand by a third of an acre. Features of the facility will include a reception area, meeting and training rooms, bunk rooms, a kitchen, an exercise room, offices, apparatus bays, and storage space for equipment and gear.
