Awards and Recognition
Our committed members provide a valuable service to the public and are truly dedicated to protecting and serving the community. Whether it is for a simple injured ankle or a serious cardiac arrest, our highly-trained volunteers are prepared to help and ready when you need them.
The walls in our station are lined with awards and photographs, attesting to the hard work and many hours that our members put in.
Exceptionally dedicated members who provide more than 100 hours of volunteer work per year receive the distinguished President’s Volunteer Service Award in Bronze, and the fact that many of our volunteers have reached this accomplishment with ease and even surpassed it to receive Silver Awards (250+ hours/year) and Gold Awards (500+ hours/year) speaks for itself.
Additionally, in three out of the last four years, our volunteers have been recognized locally for their remarkable commitment. The three volunteers were presented with the Loudoun County Outstanding Volunteer Awards, an award whose recipients are carefully selected by a panel of judges.

The jury receives nominations from all over the county. The fact that the panel chose three volunteers of our station in three separate years confirms that our members are one-of-a-kind, Outstanding Volunteers.

A little while ago, EMT Patrick Sheen received a Valor Award for going above and beyond to assist patients at a motor vehicle accident despite having been injured in the accident himself.
We take enormous pride in being part of this great company. We are looking for additional volunteers who would like to join us in our mission to serve the community and provide high-quality medical care and support to area residents. Find out more about what we do.
