The Loudoun County Combined Fire and Rescue System (LC-CFRS) strives to provide effective, consistent, and readily accessible fire and life safety education for our residents year-round. Annually we designate October as Fire Prevention Month, and LC-CFRS first responders and community outreach specialists dedicate additional time and resources to increase community awareness about preventing home fires. As we kick off Fire Prevention Month this year, several volunteer fire and rescue companies across the county will host in-person open house and community outreach events as listed below.

In addition to these events, LC-CFRS will be sharing virtual outreach measures to include fun and innovative activities that focus on critical fire prevention measures for children, adults, and special populations. To access the Fire Prevention Month materials, you can follow us on LC-CFRS official social media platforms Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Instagram and NextDoor or visit loudoun.gov/kidsfiresafetycorner to select from various activities.
