National Volunteer Week Honors Loudoun's Volunteer First Responders

Volunteer Appreciation Week 2023

As proclaimed by the Loudoun County Board of Supervisors, the week of April 16-22, 2023, has been designated as National Volunteer Week in recognition of the hundreds of dedicated volunteer members of the Loudoun County Combined Fire and Rescue System (LC-CFRS) who selflessly donate their time, talent, and energy to serve our community and protect our citizens. 

National Volunteer Week was established in 1974 and is an opportunity to honor the impact of all those who perform outstanding service in our communities and inspire others to make a difference and improve the world. The highly trained volunteers of LC-CFRS, our neighbors, are summoned to a wide array of emergencies across the county every day including fires, emergency medical incidents, natural disasters, hazardous materials incidents, water rescue emergencies, and other public service calls. When these volunteers respond to emergencies, they are often mistaken for career first responders, because they have the same level of training, skills, and professionalism. 

“We are proud to have so many volunteers in Loudoun County, our dedicated neighbors and volunteer first responders make a profound impact and are a critical part of the Loudoun County Combined Fire and Rescue System,” said Fire Chief Keith H. Johnson. “During National Volunteer Week, let us celebrate all of our volunteers for their efforts.” 

Chief Johnson also encouraged residents to go to their local fire station or visit OpenNewDoors.org to learn about the many ways residents can contribute and volunteer with the Loudoun County Combined Fire and Rescue System.
