The mission of the Fairfax Volunteer Fire Department is to provide high quality emergency medical and fire suppression and rescue services through the skill, commitment, and cooperative team effort of our volunteers working hand-in-hand with the career staff. We are justifiably proud of the fact that our dual EMS and firefighter certified members perform in fully integrated "minimum manning" duty and leadership positions, from basic EMT/firefighter to Chief.
The volunteer department was formed in 1928. In 1940 the first paid staff members started working along with the volunteers. In 1978 the City of Fairfax started its career department and to this day the volunteers work side by side with the career staff. There are two stations in the city, Station #3, downtown on University Drive (385-7878), and #33, on Lee Highway (385-7943). Currently there are approximately 80 volunteer members and 50 career personnel within the department.
