Welcome to the Centreville Volunteer Fire Department
The Fairfax County Fire and Rescue division of the Fairfax County Virginia government is a combination system, where volunteer Firefighters and Emergency Medical Technicians (EMTs) work side-by-side with county-employed career Firefighter / EMTs to provide emergency and non-emergency services to protect the lives, property, and the environment. We provide fire protection, emergency medical services, public education, and public service to the citizens of the community. There are approximately 1,100 Firefighter/EMT's employed by Fairfax County Fire and Rescue and an additional 500 operational and administrative volunteers throughout the county of Fairfax.
Fairfax County has 37 Fire Stations staffed 24-hours a day by career Firefighter / EMT's. Twelve (12) of those stations are privately owned and although staffed by county professionals, they are solely or partially owned and operated by volunteers. The Centreville Volunteer Fire Department (CVFD), Fire Station No. 17 is just one of 12 volunteer stations that provides service to those in and around Centreville, Virginia. We are staffed 24-hours a day, 7 days a week by career Firefighter / EMTs and supplement them with volunteers as needed. The Fire Station has a career Fire Engine and career Advanced Life Support (ALS) ambulance in service at all times. The CVFD volunteers can staff an additional Fire Engine and a Basic Life Support (BLS) ambulance during times when call volumes are expected to be high or when circumstances warrant additional units. Stop by the Centreville Fire Station to take a tour and meet the crews.
In addition, the Centreville VFD also supports the West Centreville Fire Station (Fire Station 38). Fire Station 38 is a county-owned station but the CFVD maintains a volunteer BLS ambulance that we can place in service to supplement the career staff at Fire Station 38 when needed. Click the Apparatus link to preview the units supporting Fire Station 17 and 38. Proceeds from donations, county supplements and BINGO income are used to purchase new apparatus and safety equipment to ensure we have the latest technology to service the community. Our most recent purchase was a new Advanced Life Support Ambulance for the West Centreville Station (Fire Station 38). Stop by West Centreville for a tour of the new unit.
To fund the fire station operations the Centreville Volunteer Fire Department depends on donations from the community and proceeds from our BINGO hall. We host smoke-free BINGO nights on Tuesdays and Saturdays from 6:30 p.m. to 10:30 p.m. The pot is $100 per game for 36 games and a Jackpot game with a pot of $1,000 each night. There are two Progressive games that have a variable pot if you get BINGO in the number of calls for that game. The Bingo hall seats 200 people comfortably and uses state-of-the-art equipment. Click the BINGO link for more information. Come out and join us to help fund the fire house. If you would like to donate, click the DONATE link for details.
