The Lucketts Volunteer Fire Department was established in 1960 with one fire truck and a two-bay firehouse. A few members of the community had recognized the need for a local fire company and prior to the company’s formal establishment a fire truck was purchased and kept at a local farm. Dispatch called the chief’s home, and his wife then phoned the local members to alert them of the call.
From that modest beginning with a single 1949 International Pumper, the department and its firehouse grew thanks in no small part to the enthusiastic and generous support of the entire Lucketts community. Early fundraisers included turkey and ham dinners, dances and sock hops in the upstairs of the station, household consignment auctions, and an annual firemen’s fun festival, famous for its country ham sandwiches and homemade ice cream.
In 2021, the Lucketts Station 10 relocated just down the road to 42429 Lucketts Road in a new state-of-the art county-funded facility.
Today, operational volunteers from the Lucketts VFC continue to serve alongside career EMTs and firefighters operating out of the new Loudoun County Fire and Rescue Station No. 10.
