The Remington Volunteer Fire & Rescue Department was organized in 1942 by the citizens of Remington, Virginia and the surrounding areas to protect their own community. The department has a rich history and tradition for service to local residents and businesses, and has saved countless lives and property over the decades. It also continues to play an important role in knitting the rural community of Remington together tightly.
The RVFRS Department is proud to offer the community:
- Firefighting and Fire Prevention Services
- Emergency Medical Services (EMS)
- Community Services
- Community Resources
Today, the department has over 70 active volunteer members, many of whom are professional fire and rescue personnel from surrounding counties who live and volunteer in Fauquier County. This volunteer team, augmented by two full-time professional fire/EMS personnel, responds to approximately 2,000 service calls each year. The department’s primary response area encompasses about twenty square miles, and is home to some 8,000 residents. It includes the communities of Remington, Bealeton and Opal.
Little Is Big
For a small community department, the RVFRD is equipped with the latest equipment and technology. The department’s apparatus roster includes thirteen vehicles – ambulances, fire engines and specialty vehicles. It also employs the latest thermal imaging devices, protective gear and rescue equipment.
