Philomont Fire and Rescue Station 

Project Overview

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 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.
  • The project is estimated for completion in 2026.

Current Status:  December 2021

  • Loudoun County is beginning the process to procure a design firm contractor for this project. The design phase is currently set to begin in 2022.
  • A public information meeting was held in September 2021 to discuss a feasibility study that evaluated utilizing the current site of the existing fire station for a new or updated 18,500-square-foot fire and rescue facility. The presentation and recording are available for download in Resources below.

Feasibility Study

A Feasibility study reviewed three possibilities for the future of the facility at its current location: (1) Renovation/addition to the existing fire station on the existing site; (2) Demolition of the existing station and replacement with a new station on the existing site; and (3) Consolidation with an adjoining county-owned parcel and demolition and replacement of the existing station with a new station on the consolidated site.

The feasibility study on the Philomont Fire Station:

  • Outlines the current needs for fire and rescue facilities, including staffing, spacing and layout of station, and existing facility deficiencies.
  • Evaluates utilizing the current site of the existing fire and rescue station for a new or updated 18,500-square-foot fire and rescue facility.
  • Reviews the site constraints, including maintaining community services, such as community center parking and recycling center, parcel size (2.28 acres versus 5 acres preferred), and the need for a temporary facility during construction.
