Leesburg, VA. - Effective at 6:00 p.m. on Thursday, September 17, 2020, Leesburg Fire Station #20, located at 61 Plaza Street NE in Leesburg will reopen after a substantial expansion and renovation project. This project was necessary to accommodate additional emergency personnel and apparatus and included three additions of approximately 6,700 square feet, interior renovations of approximately 3,500 square feet and the construction of a stand-alone storage building and refuse container enclosure. The expansion and interior renovations will provide staff with newly expanded kitchen, dining and dayroom areas, additional office space, a new training room, four additional bunk rooms, dedicated men’s and women’s locker rooms, a new exercise room and new support areas to include a decontamination room and a dedicated personal protective equipment storage room.
Navigating the project through the design, bid and construction phases, illustrated a strong collaborative effort and partnership amongst stakeholders from the Leesburg Volunteer Fire Company, Loudoun County Fire and Rescue, Loudoun County Department of Transportation and Capital Infrastructure and the Town of Leesburg.
Staff and apparatus that had been temporarily relocated to Leesburg Fire Station #1, located at 215 Loudoun Street SW, Leesburg, will return to Fire Station #20. Firefighters from the Leesburg Volunteer Fire Company and Loudoun County Fire and Rescue provide a compliment of staffing for Engine 620, Truck 620, Rescue Squad 620, Utility 620 and Boat 620, all staffed by a combination of volunteer and career system members. Leesburg Fire Station #1 will discontinue to be staffed by full-time operational personnel.
