    Ashburn Volunteer Fire Dept. finalist in national ‘Best of US’ contest

    The Ashburn Volunteer Fire Department has been named a finalist in the Johnsonville Sausage’s second annual ‘Best of US’ contest.

    The fire department is among 20 volunteer firehouses from across the nation to be recognized in the campaign honoring unsung heroes.

    The annual annual contest received 256 nominations, with many firehouses nominated multiple times by members of their community.

    “These volunteer firefighters go out of their way to help others, keep people safe and support their communities through special events and fundraisers,” said Ralph Stayer, owner of Johnsonville in a statement. “It is such an honor to recognize and reward the outstanding men and women at these firehouses for their brave and admirable service.”

    Residents are being asked to vote for their favorite firehouse from today until June 20 by visiting http://www.johnsonville.com/bestofus .

    The 10 firehouses securing the most public votes will be counted among the top 10, with one grand prize winner and nine finalists. The grand prize-winning firehouse will win $10,000 to use toward its firehouse or community, along with Johnsonville sausage products. Additionally, the International Fire Service Training Association (IFSTA) will provide the grand prize winner with an IFSTA Training Library and home smoke alarm equipment to install in 100 homes in their community – including alert devices that meet the needs of people with disabilities.

    Each of the nine other finalist departments will receive a $1,000 cash prize and Johnsonville sausage products. IFSTA will provide ball caps, t-shirts and IFSTA eBooks for each department member.

    The top 10 winning volunteer fire departments will be announced on or around June 24.
