Guided Facility Tour Philomont Fire and Rescue Station #8

Posted on December 7, 2023 at 8:39 AM by Shawn Zelman

As part of the Philomont Fire Station replacement project, Loudoun County Fire and Rescue provided the community an opportunity to take guided tours of the current Philomont Fire Station. Members of Loudoun County Fire and Rescue, the Philomont Volunteer Fire Department, Loudoun County’s Department of Transportation and Capital Infrastructure, and the project team will be on hand to provide insight into the current station's operations and answer questions about the replacement project and recent feasibility study.

The event took place on Saturday, December 2, 2023 1:30 p.m. - 3:30 p.m. 36560 Philomont Road Purcellville, VA 20132

On Saturday, December 9, 2023, from 9:30 a.m. - 11:30 a.m., Loudoun County Fire and Rescue will host an open house at our Lucketts Fire and Rescue facility located at 42429 Lucketts Road. This award winning station exemplifies a state of the art facility that meets the needs of first responders while blending with the rural aesthetic of the community.     For additional information on the Philomont Fire Station replacement project, please visit the project webpage at

This project will construct a new 18,500-square-foot fire and rescue facility on Snickersville Turnpike in the Village of Philomont to replace the existing Philomont Volunteer Fire and Rescue Company #8 Station. The new facility is anticipated to include apparatus bays, bunkroom facilities, a training/break room, restrooms, showers, food preparation and dining areas, laundry and decontamination areas, supply storage, and a gear and hose drying area. It will also include a breathing apparatus air compressor room, a fitness room, offices, and a repair shop.
