The Fairfax County Fire and Rescue Department is a combination career and volunteer organization providing fire suppression, emergency medical services, technical rescue, hazardous materials, water rescue, life safety and fire academy education, fire prevention, and arson investigation services to the more than one million residents and visitors of Fairfax County, Virginia. The department provides the highest level of emergency response to a very diverse area, from George Washington’s historic Mount Vernon mansion to the dense urban center of Tysons Corner to the far reaches of the county’s rural borders.
The Fire and Rescue Department was created in 1949, by action of the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors, to provide paid drivers for the county’s volunteer fire departments. Today, the department staffs 37 paramedic engine companies, 14 truck companies, eight heavy rescue, and 41 EMS transport units, and is composed of more than 1,400 career and 250 operational volunteer personnel who respond annually to more than 92,000 emergency calls. All uniform personnel within the department are certified as emergency medical technicians, with more than 400 of those certified at the ALS (paramedic) level. The department also supports regional, national, and international emergency response operations during disaster situations by maintaining and supporting the Urban Search and Rescue Team (USAR) Virginia Task Force I.
The Fairfax County Fire and Rescue Department has become the largest fire department in the Commonwealth of Virginia and one of the premier departments in the nation. The department continues the traditions of its past with a vision and a commitment to its future by continuously striving to meet the changing needs of Fairfax County residents and visitors.
