Ashburn has two stations: Station 6 in Ashburn & Station 22 in Landsdowne. Only 56% of the AVFRD operating budget is supported by the state and county funding… AVFRD must raise the rest. It costs as least $12,000 to safely outfit a firefighter and costs about $225 to fill up a fire truck’s gas tank.
