On Friday, June 4, Governor Ralph Northam announced that Loudoun County’s Combined Fire and Rescue System has received a Governor’s Fire Service Award for Excellence in Virginia Fire Services in recognition of the FACT*R or Field Available Coordinated Transfusion Response program. Loudoun Fire-Rescue and Fairfax County Fire and Rescue Department, in conjunction with the Northern Virginia Emergency Medical Services Council, Inova Health System, and Inova Blood Donor Services, launched FACT*R. The program provides blood via 911 resources to entrapped trauma patients, greatly increasing the level of care paramedics can provide in the field. The program came to fruition after the crash on Evergreen Mills Road in 2017 that killed a Loudoun County mother and critically injured and trapped her four passengers.
