Founded in 1942, the Dunn Loring Volunteer Fire and Rescue Department provides frontline emergency services to the community of Dunn Loring and the greater Tysons Corner, Virginia. The 70 volunteers of the department provide over 15,000 hours of uncompensated service annually. Not only do the volunteers provide supplemental staffing of emergency apparatus as fully trained and qualified emergency medical technicians and firefighters, but they must raise over $600,000 annually to meet the department’s obligations. Such commitments include monthly mortgage payments on the firehouse, the costs of maintaining the physical plant, loan payments on fire engines and ambulances, and expenses related to the administration of a non-profit corporation. The department operates two fire engines, two ambulances, a utility vehicle, and a canteen from its facility at 2148 Gallows Road under the authority of the Fairfax County.
