The Little Fork Volunteer Fire and Rescue Company (LFVFRC) responds to approximately 500 fire fighting and emergency rescue calls per year and has been recognized for 3 consecutive years as one of the few Virginia volunteer fire departments to respond to 100% of its emergency calls. This feat would not be possible without the dedication of LFVFRC’s volunteer fire fighters and emergency medical technicians (EMTs) as well as the financial support of community members.
LFVFRC is currently raising funds to build a larger and better equipped fire station that will provide adequate housing, sleeping and kitchen facilities for its dedicated team of volunteer fire fighters, emergency medical technicians (EMTs) and large animal rescue technicians.
The new fire station will provide the housing, sleeping and kitchen facilities needed to allow LFVFRC volunteers to stay at the station 24/7, 7 days a week, and improve emergency response times so that we can better serve residents of Culpeper County Virginia and surrounding jurisdictions.
LFVFRC Chief Doug Monaco provides details about the Building Fund campaign in this video:
LFVFRC is appealing to residents of Culpeper County Virginia and surrounding communities to contribute to the Building Fund through the May 5, 2015 Give Local Piedmont campaign.
