Forty years of fatherhood: Sterling's Grant family continues tradition of volunteer service

If in the last 40 years you have watched an ambulance or fire truck speed down the road in Sterling, there is a good chance a member of Loudoun's Grant family was on board.

Eight Grants have served on the Sterling Volunteer Rescue Squad over the years, and 83-year-old patriarch Charles, his son James and grandson James II remain members today, as does James Grant II's wife, Allison. Charles and the younger James also serve with the Sterling Volunteer Fire Company.

"It's a family affair," James Grant II said. "It's pretty amazing and awesome to be a part of a great legacy."

Charles Grant joined the SVRS and SVFC in 1980, not long after his son David became the first member of the family to volunteer on the rescue squad. James Grant and three more of his brothers - he has six total, as well as three sisters - joined SVRS shortly after. Though James, 56, is not a volunteer firefighter, he contributes to the fire company as an IT technician.
