About Fair Oaks Volunteer Fire & Rescue Company

Our Purpose

The Fair Oaks Volunteer Fire & Rescue Co. has been providing fire protection and emergency medical services to Fairfax County residents, businesses, and visitors since 1957.

Working along side career personnel of the Fairfax County Fire and Rescue Department, our volunteers are certified at all levels of emergency services from firefighters and Emergency Medical Technicians to line officers and battalion chiefs. Our members provide supplemental staffing on frontline county units as well as staffing additional units, particularly during periods of high incident activity or when the career staff is engaged in training.

Our personnel come from all professions and walks of life, sharing in a common desire to give back something to the community in which we live and work. Click here to learn about volunteering with Fair Oaks Fire & Rescue.
