Saturday evening was a typical evening in Sterling for the SVFC. The men and women of Crew 7 were on duty, staffing Engines 611 and 618, (Quint 618 running as) Truck 611, and the command unit. Meanwhile in Purcellville the members of the Purcellville Volunteer Fire Company were gathered for their annual banquet. In January when the SVFC held our banquet the PVFC provided staffing for our units, and it was time to return the favor. Members from Sterling were also staffing Engine 602, TowerLadder 602, and Tanker 602 in Purcellville. In addition to that Ashburn Volunteer Fire and Rescue reached out to Sterling for help staffing their truck company, and Sterling responded with another crew to staff Truck 606. The dedication of the membership of the Sterling Volunteer Fire Company once again demonstrates why the SVFC is one of the most respected volunteer fire companies in the region.
