Second Philomont Fire and Rescue Station Feasibility Study Completed

Posted on July 13, 2023 at 8:50 AM by Heidi Kellum

Loudoun County has completed a second feasibility study regarding the Loudoun County Fire and Rescue facility to be constructed in the village of Philomont. The purpose of this study was to determine whether the county’s needs can be met by a community-proposed plan for a new station on the current site of the Philomont Volunteer Fire Station. 

The project is currently slated to construct a new 18,500-square-foot fire and rescue station on a seven-acre site at 37180 Snickersville Turnpike in Philomont. 

About the Feasibility Study 
The project design team initiated this second feasibility study of the concept plans (scheme 4 and 4A, created by Mr. Bill Ridge) to locate the new station at the existing fire station site after the plans were proposed by members of the community in December 2022. The results of the study were presented to the Finance/Government Operations and Economic Development Committee (FGOEDC) as an informational item during their regularly scheduled meeting on July 11, 2023. 

Based on the study findings, the project team does not recommend initiating a change to the current plan to utilize the property at 37180 Snickersville Turnpike to construct the new Philomont Fire and Rescue Station. For more information, view the study (PDF) and presentation (PDF).

The first feasibility study for this project was completed and presented to the Loudoun County Board of Supervisors in October of 2021. Both studies can be viewed on the project page at
