Loudoun’s First Responders Celebrated at Awards Ceremony

For the first time, Loudoun County’s Combined Fire-Rescue System brought both volunteer and career firefighters and emergency medical personnel together in an awards ceremony that celebrated some of the best and bravest in the department.

“You don’t have to pull somebody out of a burning building or rescue somebody out of a car to be a hero in my mind,” said Acting System Chief Keith Johnson. “If you just come to work and do a really god job every day, you’re a hero in my mind.”
