Join our team as a Firefighter, EMT, or BOTH! We welcome anyone with previous/existing certifications or individuals who have no experience in the Fire and Rescue department. All training necessary will be provided free of charge and we offer flexible schedules. Be on the front lines for those in need serving the Marshall Virginia and surrounding areas!
Our department cannot operate without our amazing support members who keep everything running smoothly. There's a lot more that goes into a Volunteer Fire & Rescue department than just responding to emergency calls! We welcome anyone with a desire to improve our organization and help us better serve the community in a safe and professional manner!

For Firefighters or EMT's we are flexible and can work with almost any schedule. Some of our members who live close to the station operate as "home response" by driving to the firehouse when a call comes in. If you do not live close to the firehouse/EMS station then you can run a "duty crew" which involves being at the station for a set period of time on a given day or night. Support members can help with fund raising, organizing the calendar/events, office duties, recruitment and more. All members, whether first responder or support, are expected to attend meetings once a month (first responders also have a drill once a month) and keep up to date with certifications as needed.
The answer depends on what academy you sign up for and which certifications you'd like to obtain. Typically the Fauquier County Volunteer Fire Academy takes six months to complete and classes are usually held two nights a week plus one full day on the weekend for the six month duration. The EMT (Emergency Medical Technician) Academy is typically four months long with two nights a week plus one full day on the weekends during the four months of training.
