The Town of Purcellville, settled in 1764, is located 50 miles west of the Nation’s Capital along the Northern Ridge of the Blue Ridge Mountains, just a short drive from the Shenandoah River. Purcellville is a town of nearly 9,200 residents located in Loudoun County, approximately 40 miles west of Washington, DC. Once a stop along the W&OD rail line, Purcellville has maintained its historic old-town feel through the restoration and maintenance of its many downtown structures, reflecting the Victorian architecture popular during the early 1900s. Today, Purcellville is the economic hub of western Loudoun County and a popular weekend destination for antiquing, entertainment, farmer’s markets, wineries, breweries, distilleries and restaurants.
Loudoun County Fire and Rescue (LCFR) divides the County into first-due areas. A first due is the area that a specific fire company/station is expected to arrive first in when dispatched. PVFC is Station 602, and we have a first due that covers the Town of Purcellville (3.42 square miles) and some surrounding areas. Our apparatus is also dispatched into second- and third-due areas such as Hamilton, Round Hill, Philomont, Lovettsville, Loudoun Heights, and Leesburg. PVFC may also be dispatched to other areas throughout Loudoun County and surrounding counties such as Clarke County (VA), Fauquier County (VA), Jefferson County (WV), and Frederick County (MD) to provide mutual aid and coverage when other stations are on large or long-running calls. Even if you don’t live in Purcellville, PVFC may still respond to your location, and you can join us to help protect them!
